Tara Parker-Pope brought up an interesting subject on her Well blog: lying to your therapist. Sure, there are many topics that can be embarrassing or uncomfortable to talk about, especially when it comes to your body or your innermost thoughts and secrets, but in order to get the correct advice, we need to give all the facts.
I can’t help but wonder what the point of talking to a therapist or doctor is if you’re just going to lie to them. I'm always honest because I just assume that they've heard worse, but what about you? Have you ever lied to your therapist or doctor?
