Be Honest With Yourself
By DOROTHY DIX
THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER
According to the old adage. there
are two people we should never try
to deceive?our lawyer and our doc
tor. In reality there is a third indi
vidual to whom we should be even
more careful to tell the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but the
truth, and that is ourself.
Instead of doing this, however, it
is precisely little old I to whom we
lie most shamelessly, with whom we
are never honest or frank or candid;
whom we mislead with false and
baseless hopes and expectations; be
fore whom we camouflage our mo
tives and whom we deceive at every
turn in life.
Why we fool ourselves nobody
knows, unless it is that our vanity .
would not permit us to know the
truth about ourselve3 and still live, |
but among all human vagaries none |
is so queer'* as the amusing little i
game of make believe that we play |
with ourselves instead of facing the j
facts in the case.
It seems an innocent enough little J
game, like children dressing up and ;
pretending that they are princes, and j
princesses, Indian chiefs and pirates.
But childish games are always dan
gerous for grown-ups, and by the
time we have deceived ourselves into
thinking that we are angels or
heroes or great geniuses the time has,
gone by when we might have made 1
successes of the things we were really
capable of being and doing.
We can understand why people j
should try to deceive olher people.
There may be some possible gain in
it. But why they should try to de
ceive themselves is a mystery past
finding out, for that is bound to bring
them loss. Yet they do. As an ex
ample of this Just take such a simple
matter as one's health.
Did you ever know anyone to ad
mit that the thing that he liked to do
was injurious to him? The inveterate
smoker will tell you that tobacco
soothes his nerves: the drunkard, that
his system requires a stimulant. The*
bon vivant is sure that lobster New
burg is just what a dyspeptic stom
ach requires, and that he has some
obscure heart malady instead of being
the victim of over-eating.
Women with small feet never admit
that they caught a cold by going out
in sloppy weather with thin soled
pumps and silk stockings on. Ladies
with beautiful shoulders have no sus
picion that they acquire bronchitis
from sitting in a draught in a decol
lete dress at the theater.
Y6u never hear a sick person say,
"Of course I'm sick and I deserve to
be sick. I ate too much and drank totf
much, and exercised too little. I
ruined my constitution by dissipation,
and I'm paying the inevitable debt to
nature." Oh no. The theory that ill
health Is a mysterious dispensation
of providence, visited upon us for
some inscrutable purpose we cannot
understand, was invented as a kind of
smoke screen to hide from our own
eyes the truth that we bring our own
ill health upon us.
Most of oii|r failures in life are en
tirely due to our inability to be honest
with ourselves. We would like to suc
ceed, but we're not willing to buy
success - at the price of giving our
abilities a cold calm appraisal.
We never say to ourselves. "I'm a
person of very mediocre ability. I
have no especial talent. I lack origi
nality and initiative and executive
faculty. The best I can say for my
self is that I am not lazy, so I'll get
into some business where good, faith
ful plodding work will count."
Oh no. We all do the Ananias stunt
to ourselves, and tell ourselves that
we are wonderful and brilliant and
destined to set the world on fire, and
so we go into occupations and pro
fessions for which we have no ability !
or qualification, and starve and fail i
when we might have been prosperous j
and successful if only we had been
honest with ourselves. j
And when we fail, we lie to our- J
selves about why we failed, and that
puts up one bar more between us and
success. When we do not get on in
business we do not say that it is be
cause we have been shiftless, because
we have been neglectful of details
and stupid and short sighted.
On the contrary, we invariably at
tribute our failure to economic condi
tions or the jealousy of those above
us or the lack of appreciation of real
merit or to favoritism. And for the
sake of salving our hurt vanity wo
lose the chance of correcting our
faults and winning out.
We lie to ourselves about our domes
tic affair3. Did you ever hear either
a husband or wife admit that he or
she was in any way responsible foi
