It sure is.
Sure. I do it all of the time, but I've got ears too.
Sure, some people do it all the time in different occasions.
This quote is from a movie called phone booth, sometimes people lie to themselves like that for so long! Till they realize it who they really are.
"I wear all this Italian s**t because underneath I still feel like the Bronx. I think I need these clothes and this watch. My two thousand dollar watch is a fake and so am I. I've neglected the things I should have valued most. I valued this s**t. I take off my wedding ring to call Pam. Kelly, that's Pam. Don't blame her. I never told her I was married. And if I did she, she would have told me to go home. Kelly, looking at you now, I'm ashamed of myself. All right? I mean, I work so hard on this image, on Stu Shepherd, the a****le who refers to himself in the third person, that I only proved I should be alone. I have just been dressing up as something I'm not for so long, I'm so afraid no one will like what's underneath. But here I am, just flesh and blood and weakness"
Absolutely; happens all the time. Allow me to to elaborate:
Roughly 48% of Americans are convinced that a 500 yr-old man with no seafaring experience singlehandedly built a wooden boat to hold 2.3 million individual living creatures for six months. That's 140 million willfully deceived people, give or take.
Kanye West is sure he is the biggest rock star alive. Just ask him.
Every year, over 40,000 people convince themselves they are sober enough to drive, but are tragically proven wrong.
Watch the 700 Club once, you'll see Pat Robertson. You'll know self-delusion in epic form.
It's possible and billions do.
I don't, I know exactly what I am.
I'm an insignificant nothing a
in our vast endless universe.
Ohhhh big hell's to the yeah on that....
it's not a lie! Even my mom says I'm beautiful!
Yes. Don't kid yourself.
We all do it sometimes, some do it all the time. We don't usually call it lying, just rationalisation.
Yes, for example, many people in bad relationships believe nothing is wrong because their heart is so overpowering in telling them they love that person, even when they shouldn't!
Only in the sense of denying reality.
