Liar Quotes and Lies Sayings to Help You Deal with Dishonesty

Sometimes to save ourselves pain or punishment. Other times to save someone else pain and so we've told a white lie.

“I always get nervous before a date/meeting/social gathering and that holds me back from being my true and best self and from doing and getting what I want. What can I do to overcome this?”

This is an issue that used to hold me back in the past and I've more experience with it than I would have ever wanted.
