.... "I choose what I will tell myself is true"... or put in another way, I am an habitual liar and choose to live in denial rather than the evidence of the truth - i.e., chronic deception, compulsive liar.
A sociopath, like me, is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. Sociopaths, like me, have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. Sociopaths, like me, are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways.
Compare this to being a compulsive liar, which I am also.
A compulsive liar, like me, is defined as someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars, like me, bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, like me, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary.
I, Steve Korch, have been lying about all sorts of things in my life. Shortly I have been told, a group of people are going to come forward and expose me about the lies I have made. Funny people. Don't they understand that I tell myself the truth and therefore, it doesn't matter what "evidence" they come up with, since, regardless of the actual PHYSICAL EVIDENCE to support their claims, the testimony, etc, it is not true...... I know the truth and that is what I tell myself.
LOGIC : Therefore, if my house is on fire and I can simply tell myself that the house is not on fire and my truth is what matters to me, rather than what actually is. This is basic postmodern thinking....

P.S., Don't believe what others say about me, only believe the truth I tell myself, because that is the only truth that matters.....
