I just saw an article asking why do we lie.
Why we don't talk about our feelings and just say that we're fine. I guess it's as the title says, because it's easier, simpler. Maybe this way we'll protect ourselves from the possible bad reaction our friends might have, the possible demeaning of our feelings or simply because it's tiring to explain why you are not happy, when there might not be a reason.

I lie a lot.
