Why do we lie? On this week's episode of ShrinkChicks, Emmalee and Jen dive into the topic of lying and why people - including us - lie! They discuss different kinds of lies, lies the two of them have recently told in their personal lives, prosocial vs. antisocial lies, when lying becomes self-betrayal, the shame that can come with lying, how to evaluate our intentions behind a lie, and so much more. Dear Em & Jen answers a question about confronting a friend about disliking their new significant other. Tune in to gain insight, awareness, and action!
