Not outright lie but I'm not gonna tell my entire life story either. Some people have accused me of lying when I mentioned fractions of events but not the full story. Makes sense, without context you probably sound insincere.
Strong ASPD traits with NPD/BPD undertones. Sadist, addict, diagnosed PTSD.

Because here is where you are supposed to be able to be yourself.
How does it benefit you to lie here?
As for me, I'm generally honest here. If I lie, it's usually over minor things to protect my anonymity. I'm always honest when I talk about my experiences.
I know I've said this a dozen times before, but I'll say it again - I feel like this is the only place I can really be myself. I want to be accepted as I truly am here and I can't expect that to happen if I were to spend my time lying about everything.

I believe that you're essentially honest here, Reaper. I admire that about you.
