Self Deception

As should be obvious, I am perhaps more committed to truth-telling in my life than virtually anyone you will ever meet.  But I am realizing that to a great extent it is lies which have kept me alive, and I would like to simply say that it is a measure of God's mercy, too, that we can lie to ourselves, and believe our lies long enough to get through situations which would otherwise be unmanageable.
