Subconscious: – Yo! Why do people get angry so often? They love the feeling or something?
Conscious: – It’s probably they have some stupid voices inside that lie to them.
Subconscious: – Hmm… interesting… voices like you?
Conscious: – Sure… voices like me… Anyway, why do you ask?
Subconscious: – Cuz I can’t understand why is this happening. Most people don’t even talk about the “issues” that make them angry. They just become angry and that’s it. Why is that? Why they can’t communicate? Why they believe those voices?
Conscious: – I can’t believe you ask these questions! Have you read some pages from a book or something? You’re full of surprises today! Keep that up! and to answer your question, I guess people trust the voices because they seem to be real. They seem to be part of themselves, so they must be real, right? WRONG! Own thoughts can lie!
Subconscious: – WoooooooooW! So people can lie themselves?
Conscious: – Sure… they create some scenarios or they even tell themselves how stupid they are. Sounds familiar?
Subconscious: – No, because you really are stupid. I’m not lying… it’s pure truth!
Conscious: – Sure it is… I totally believe you. I suggest you should stop reading beer labels. It’s not helpful.
Subconscious: – Well, if you stop bringing beer inside, I’ll stop reading the labels.
Conscious: – Shhhhh! That’s a lie! I don’t do it on purpose. It just happens.
Subconscious: – Of course, of course! It’s my fault you drink too much!
Conscious (angry): – I DO NOT! Stop lying! Leave me alone!
Subconscious: – Yes, yes, I’m lying. But am I? Maybe you’re lying to yourself?
