Introducing the book Lies we tell ourselves : how to face the truth, accept yourself, and create a better life by John Frederickson
Are you stuck in life? Do not know why? Does something seem wrong, but you do not know what it is?

In The Book of Lies we tell ourselves : how to face the truth, accept yourself, and create a better life, John Frederickson interprets the ways in which we deceive ourselves. Through dozens of stories and examples, he shows that the apparent cause of our problems is almost never the real cause.

In addition, he confronts us with the problems we struggle with and with the things that frighten us in life. Frederickson shows us how to recognize the lies we tell ourselves and face the truths we have shunned, and stop saying yes when our answer is no.
Although we may resort to lies to escape pain, clinging to delusions actually becomes the source of more suffering. This book shows how we can create a better life by letting go of lies and confronting reality. It also shows that treatment is not just a conversation. It is a relationship between two people who are dedicated to facing the deepest truths of our lives so that we can be healed.


Excerpts from the book of Lies we tell ourselves : how to face the truth, accept yourself, and create a better life
We all lie to ourselves to avoid pain in our lives. Hence, we are all equal as imperfect; So we can talk to each other with equal dignity and we are obliged to tell the truth to ourselves and others.

By doing so, we find a way to live in truth and with each other, that is, to see the lies we tell ourselves and to face the truths that we avoid. To hear the truth from another does not mean to surrender to him, but to surrender to something greater: the truth. In life we ​​walk the paths that our lies have identified and only lead to suffering.

When our suffering is overwhelming, we need someone to help us see the lies we believe and the lies we tell ourselves. Because it is only by seeing these lies that we encounter the facts of our lives and return to the path of truth; And because, our lies make us sick and confront us with the facts. This requires someone to help us see the lies and endure the pain they have hidden, and to hold our hand when we fall into the truths we avoid.
The lies we tell ourselves are about the lies we tell ourselves in the face of difficult life situations. How we become angry with the other party instead of finding the cause of the failure of a relationship, seeing him ungrateful or worse than he is, or not seeing our feelings.
The book, like a series of psychotherapy sessions, takes the reader step by step. First, with real-life examples, it helps us to see how people like us can easily lie to ourselves and help us be honest with ourselves and look at ourselves.

This book helps you to see the realities of life. You will not let anyone bother you anymore and you will not bother yourself beyond that.

The main point of this book is that we live in our beliefs and do not have a correct image of ourselves and others and even our surroundings. This causes us to constantly make mistakes or suffer ourselves.

The book’s claim is that it seeks healing in us, and I am sure it will succeed.
The therapist helps us to see the truth, follow it, and regain our hope by seeing the lies that blind our hope. The moment we stop denying, the possibility appears before us. We must give up hope for disappointing fantasies in order to regain a realistic hope for what is real.

This book, which’s seemingly about psychotherapy, is actually about what it means to be human. We all lie to ourselves to avoid pain in our lives. Hence, we are all equal as imperfect and imperfect human beings; So we can talk to each other with equal dignity and we are obliged to tell the truth to ourselves and others. By doing so, we find a way to live in truth and with each other, that is, to see the lies we tell ourselves and to face the truths that we avoid. To hear the truth from another does not mean to surrender to him, but to surrender to something greater: the truth.

Part of the book Lies we tell ourselves : how to face the truth, accept yourself, and create a better life:
Chapter One: A Workplace Misses.

We have all experienced the pain of life and drowned in its flood. The truth has taken over us, but we avoid it with the lies we tell ourselves; Lies that we do not recognize and I never intend to tell. Unfortunately, these lies, which may have saved our lives in the first place, increase our long-term worst enemies and the cause of our suffering.

Unaware that our lies are wrong and that we seek help by imagining that we are wrong. We think we are broken, while it is our lies that are broken and allow our feelings to be expressed. By escaping our emotions, we tell ourselves more lies that cause more suffering.

What if what is “wrong” in us leads to what is right?
What if we have to stop fleeing and come back and accept what we fear? Facing the realities of our lives not only reveals the causes of our suffering, but also gives us the ability to face those realities.

The sea replied: I am the ocean. Come and see.

The doll stepped into the waves and at the last moment before dissolving in the water said in a muffled voice, “Oh, now I know who I am.”
