I stop kidding myself and get honest. I drop my justifications and come clean with life.

THE POWER OF JUSTIFICATIONS
What misbehaviors and insanity do we justify to ourselves? We make things ok that are not completely ok. We legitimize what's slippery and sloppy and less than our honorable best. But if we are out of integrity with ourselves, we will experience ever-increasing levels of discomfort. If we want happiness and satisfaction in life, we have to be honest about our justifications, and we have to be willing to come clean. We can fool ourselves for a bit, but not forever. We always have to come clean and get straight in the end.
