‘What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!’ – Shakespeare
Bet you didn’t know March 14 was National Save a Spider Day. The idea is to honor these many legged creatures who act as Nature’s pest control agents, using webs they spin to trap their prey.
Just as a spider weaves a web from what is inside of them, we can weave a web with the stories we tell to ourselves and others. Question is, are these webs ensnaring us?
It takes a good memory to keep up with an untruth. It’s so much simpler to be real, but true honesty is a daily effort for most of us.
Exercise: Write about a lie you told recently. Why did you feel it was necessary? No judgement or solution needed; this is just an exploration.
