I think it stems from lying so much as a child. I hate it. I think I do it because it's convenient, almost second nature. I don't even realize the lies I'm telling until I think about it later and I'm like WTF, that never happened! Anyone have any advice? I want to be a better person, and I want to be aware of what I say and do. Also, I suffer from putting my foot in my mouth constantly as well.
