For a long while one of the most perplexing questions I could ask was “what do I like about me?”. Beyond the things I might tell others to help them think good of me and past the fabrications told to fatten up my ego, what was the truth? My BS was so deep and so long ago planted a good bit of it came to appear as fact to me, even though a lot of it was fabrication or exaggeration. I had to chip away self-delusion for a long time before I had even slight glimpses into “what do I like about me?”. Ultimately I found the largest quantity of my lies were told to the person who would most easily believe them: ME! That realization was the first big step in seeing myself more clearly and beginning the journey to factual self-discovery.
Getting rid of a delusion makes us wiser
than getting hold of a truth.
