The Lie we tell ourselves

Larry Lowry 1959 (Pryor)



What we tell ourselves . We tell ourselves we are good then curse the police for doing ajob we would not do.we get angry when petty things anger us instead of leting it be not a problem. We have tantrums when things dont go our way. Its easy to say it wasnt our fault but no one else was doing what we do. We lie and give excuses for bad behavior. We lie to ourselves so we can get through a day we caused no one else. So who will.start saying i will take resposabilty .
