Can sometimes self-deception be desirable?
It saves lives every day.
‘My life has a meaning’
‘My wife still loves me’
‘My dreams will come true’
‘Life is fair’
‘There is a God who pays attention’
‘If I work hard enough I will reach my goals’
‘Doesn’t matter that I didn’t became an astronaut/rockstar/famous writer, being a housewife/bookkeeper is more exciting anyway’
And so on…
So you do see that these are (mostly?) self-deceptions, good. Do you know what are your self-deceptions?
