To Thine Own-self be True...
Let's face it, we all lie. We lie to our friends, we lie to our clients and we lie to ourselves. Is lying a good thing? It depends.
Lying to friends and clients is not ever a good thing. Yes, we may get by from time to time telling "little white lies", but what does that hurt you may ask. It hurts you and the integrity of the business you are in. Even if you are never found out, it puts a chink in the armor of integrity.
Lying to yourself is a double edged sword. The mind cannot differentiate between what is real or what is imagined. When lying to one's self is used constructively, such as in daily affirmations to build confidence, strength or visualize what you want or where you want to be is okay. Lying to yourself for destructive purposes is not.
So is telling yourself something that isn't true a lie? Maybe, maybe not. It could be that you are telling yourself the hidden truth all along. Maybe, just maybe, you are being inspired by the Creator to be the person He wants you to be.
