You can’t go wrong with the truth. Going forward, make a concerted effort to be honest. Yes, it might be difficult, but you must try to stop misrepresenting the truth. Continuing to lie will only make the problem worse.
You wrote about having a “serious case of laziness and inconsistency and that you “get involved in too much endeavors but can’t produce results.” You might believe that there are certain things that you “should” be doing that you are not doing. Thus you make up stories to fill in the gaps.
The untruths you tell involve an embellishment of your accomplishments. This would suggest that you are unhappy with your accomplishments and wish for others to see you in a more positive light. Perhaps you have unrealistic ideas about what you think you need to accomplish in life. If your expectations were more realistic, then you might no longer feel the need to lie.
You can’t go back and change the past. Try to learn from your mistakes. If you continue to struggle, consider counseling. Counseling can help you to develop more realistic expectations and how to be satisfied with yourself and your accomplishments. Please take care.
