Are You Ready for This? This Talk Will Challenge Those Little Lies You Tell Yourself
From a young age, we learn to protect ourselves from pain. We create our own realities in order to protect our egos from things that could hurt us, meaning what we think is the truth is really just our own version of the truth. Padding our realities to protect our egos doesn’t seem too bad—until you realize that self-deception leads to pain and regret. In this TEDx Talk, professor Cortney Warren explains how we fool ourselves, and how we can stop doing so in order to live a truly fulfilling life.
