Do You Get to See Family for Christmas? Or Do You Have to See Family?
I had an Uncle Bullshit. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t his real name, but that’s how I remember others referring to him. Perhaps you have an Uncle BS too?

You’re Welcome. Merry Christmas.

I enjoyed your website and insights. Having grown up as a pathological liar it took me years to focus on telling the truth. Most of the time when someone asks me a question (requiring a yes or no) I give them a yes or no first. I also shorten any other remarks. Here’s my problem – I have very few close friends or family because they know I’m forthright, blunt and honest. It took self awareness and self discipline to break a foundational system of lies I relied on in my dealings with people. Ironically, in examining myself i began to see lies in other people. It got so bad i really kinda withdrew from others. Part of it was me and the healthier choices i made to be truthful. Part of it was i found so many people reliant on lying for reasons I couldn’t understand. My change was about having to live with myself -FIRST. Things are much easier and less complicated now, but I have found it a little lonely
