Ok... I'm slowly forgiving Edward and Jacob.

515- Iowa
"I told my boyfriend that I couldn't be with him because I wasn't in love with him anymore, but that's a lie. I still love him. It just hurt when he hit me."

"I lied when I said those scars were from falling over."

"I told him I haven't slept with anyone but him since May. I've slept with four other people... And thought of how much I missed him everytime."

This email address idea was amazing. Haha. Thanks.

December 29, 2008

Only a few more days of 2008 is left... It feels like 2000 was 3 days ago. Haha

I got a lie IMed to my phone today. Those ones always make me giggle.

"I lied, I don't want to fall asleep without you."

"I was lying when I said I was okay, but I wasn't lying when I said, "I really do hate life."

313- Michigan
"I lied. I still think about suicide. I am still depressed. Lying is easier."

I've gotten hooked on this damn Twilight Saga. Haha
Tay Tay & I are reading them together. It's crazy.
I'm currently pissed off at Edward & Jacob. Hahaha

917- California
"I was lying when I said I could handle losing you."

When I received this text, I felt tears come to my eyes and I knew that this lie had to have a post of its own...

I thought that most people would be able to relate to this lie. And perhaps it's a lie that many other people can agree with... If that makes sense. Haha

406- Montana
"I really am afraid of being alone. Regardless of how many times I say I'm not, the fact of the matter stays the same. This is one lie I've told... Including to myself."

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just got a request to make an email address for people outside of the US to email me their lies.


If you email a secret in, you will receive a reply when I get the email.

If possible, please include your country with it.

Thank you.

To the person who imed me their lie, I apologize, but I deleted it on accident.

If there's any way you can send it to me again, I'd really appreciate it.

515- Iowa
"I know that I want to get out of here and I told everyone my plan. Except that plan is total bogus, because I have no idea what I want with my life anymore."

3 days later and not a thing...

What happened?

Is it my phone?
Are they not coming through?
I receive texts from my friends here, but no lies for 3 days...

Where are they?

"My lie. I act like I'm really social and outgoing, but I'm really quiet and like to be alone."

December 16, 2008

720- Colorado
"I won't really have as good of a day as I told him I would. I just want him to think I can be happy without him."

It's a lazy day off... Amazing.

"No longer a cutter... A year and some months later.. I thought I'd be over it & I still don't know how to deal."

651- Minnesota
"I lie about being happy everday. I'm alone. Even with all my friends surrounding me. I just want someone there."

Another long day.
I think my texts are coming through all right. Haven't had any trouble yet today... Hopefully it's all over and it won't happen again.

609- New Jersey
"I said I don't mind being the odd one. But it kills me everyday."

The people in Michigan are a bunch of liars...

And I love it!
Just kidding.
You know I love you all.

"The average person lies 10 times in a conversation."

December 13, 2008

Well, I apologize for this being so late... My phone went all lame & was witholding my texts! Haha... We had a discussion & it decided it would give me my texts all at once. I missed 44 texts... It was lame.

So... I'm very sorry... And here we go!

916- California
"I lie to myself everyday that this will work."

573- Missouri
"First lie of the day was that nothing's wrong. In all reality, my life sucks."

Only 15 more days until Christmas.

Is your shopping done?
Mine hasn't even started. Hahaha
Yeah... I procrastinate.

310- California
"I told him that I was regretting not making those poor decisions with him. I lied."

845- New York
"I think I was lying when I said, "I miss you too.""

702- Nevada
"I know how the throw up got on the toilet seat."

I got a comment from Chantelle, the girl who runs SHWYD, this morning.
I guess there's been some confusion. I am not Chantelle. I am someone completely different.

I'm Elise.

Now, yes, I got the idea for the section entitled, "How to say "So, what was your lie?" in other languages" from Chantelle, but damn, the girl shouldn't have had such a good idea. Haha

But, I am Elise. Not Chantelle.
Hope that clears things up.

December 9, 2008

Well... Only one so far this morning.

I know people are at least reading the blog. Haha
I have 105 views in all... So why don't I have 105 lies? haha... Kidding.

904- Florida

813- Florida
"I lied yesterday when I said I was fine with this change. I'm not, but I know the consequences could be losing my job all together. With that, I have to be fine."

817- Texas
"Something that used to be a truth for me has now become a lie. I can no longer truthfully say that my heart is broken. He is my favorite person in the entire world. He is the one who made that truth a lie. He prove he wants my battered and bruised, passed around heart."

913- Kansas
"I lie everyday when I say I am happy he wants to be her father after all this time. Inside it kills me and I pray that horrible things will happen to him."

951- California
"My lie is that I'm still a virgin and don't ever want to. In reality, I have been having sex for a year. I can't tell my grandma or sister for fear of breaking their hearts."

Today is day 1 of 2 days off. I'm off today & tomorrow. We laid in bed until 12:00 today... It was great. Haha

December 8, 2008

Good morning everyone!
How was your weekend?

Well, it snowed here last night. Lala hasn't seen snow before. It was so cute this morning. She was walking all funny. We laughed so hard.

Well, I just got my first lie of the day.

336- North Carolina.
"As a present to myself for getting into my 1st choice college... Friday I skipped school, went to my friend's house (who was on break), slept in with her, woke up around noon, then we went to meet our other friend and smoked a big bowl, ate an amazing lunch and watched a hilarious kid's movie at the theater. I lied to my parents who thought I went to school and teachers whom I told I was sick... But days like those are what I will remember most. :-)"

432- Texas
"I might be lying now... Hope you can use this. My lie... Which of the many? A customer asked how I was. "Great," I replied. But my life fuckin sucks balls. I lied about having a great life. But it's not. Hell."

Keep the lies coming!

It hurt me to much to try to keep that promise!

p.s. i really feels this helps me! so i was just wondering if i can keep texting you my lies when i feel the need?


This was left in a comment.
And I want you to know that you can text me whenever you need to. If I don't reply right away, I might be busy. But anyone who texts me a lie will get a reply so that they know that I got it.

I hope that someday more people will text me their lies.

I got a decent amount today, but I know I can do better.
Keep those lies coming!!!

Loving it!

I smile every time my phone vibrates in my pocket.

The excitement of the possibility of the text being a lie gives me butterflies.
Bizarre analogy, I know, but that's ok. I'm kinda bizarre anyway. Haha

So, I told my boyfriend about this whole thing & he told one of the girls that I work with about it.
She cracks me up.

I went into this thinking, maybe, just maybe, I'm crazy for doing this.

Maybe I'm crazy for pasting my phone number all over the internet...
Maybe I'm not crazy. Maybe this idea was the most sane idea I've ever had... Who knows...

But, Tay Tay, I'm glad you're on board. Haha

December 7, 2008

Well... I've only gotten one this morning.

It's 11:30 an I have to leave for work in an hour. So, figured I'd post this quick before I got ready for work.
Closing today. I won't be home until like... 5:00 tonight.

So, here it is.

"No matter what my boyfriend says or does that makes me sad, I never tell him he's hurting me. That seems like a pretty big lie to me."

Thank you for that. It did bring tears to my eyes.

I hope you find what makes you happy someday.

"My lie: I didn't go to the winter formal. I took a taxi to Angel's house and drank your beer with the naked people on it and watched James and the Giant Peach."

"I lied when I told her I didn't want to go swimming today. Truth is, I would love to go, but then she would see the self-inflicted cuts on my arms and legs."

"Well, I promised my brother I wouldn't end up like him at 22. I'm 15 and broke that promise by going back to old habits because of him trying to kill himself it..."

That's all I got. If you read this, please send the rest.

"I said I was studying, but instead I was reading Post Secret and SHWYD?
That's my lie."

732-New Jersey
"My lie is everyday I make it seem like he is his son. The chance is he is not."

"My lie=CMU is a waste of my time. I just want to be a stripper."

805- California
"I'm not really on my period, I just didn't want to have sex today."

Not too many today... Keep them coming, please.

Saturday, December 6, 2008

December 6, 2008

Well... It's another day.
I'm in between shifts right now. Have to leave in about 10 minutes, so I figured I'd get this in quick...

Didn't get too many today...
Where's the love, people?

"I told my best friend that her new dog was precious & so cute. But really, the dog looks like the asshole that I dated this summer. I pity the dog."

"My lie: I don't care anymore that he's with her."

"Lie: I was supposed to work on a group project today... When I get there, the guys behind me were talking about how my ex-bf was in town. I told my group members..."
If you're reading this, please text me the rest. I'd love the rest.

585- New York
"My lie has been everyday-I stole it. It was a mistake and I knew that and I shouldn't have done it and he got it back. I just want forgiveness."

That's all for now...

Got a few more minutes before I have to leave.
The sky is purple outside. It's making my house look crazy.

I'll update around 10:00 tonight, if I get more.

Off to work!

I cry a little, for reasons now known...

Anonymous said...

I sent a lie to the girl who posted her number on the internet, when she replied to my text message I instantly felt better. That was roughly 3 minutes ago. Thank-you, for letting me get that off my chest.

05 December 2008 15:01

This is a comment left under a post by Chantelle from So, How Was Your Day?

I cried a little when I read this.

To, whoever you are, thank you.
That made me cry, for reasons now known.

Four years ago tomorrow, I was in a horrible car accident. I was in a coma for a week and a half and I was in the hospital for almost 2 months.
I am now almost fully healed. I've been having some trouble in school, so my mom sent me to a Neuropsychologist.
He had me draw some pictures, recite some words and play some games over a 3 hour period. When it was finally over, I found out that the right front part of my brain is not fully healed.
Therefore, I have some... Disabilities, I guess you could say... I can't read body language. Someone could be the sweetest person ever in what their saying while their body language says something completely different & I wouldn't know.
I found out that learning will be harder for me than most people. If the normal person has to read something twice to understand it, I have to read it 3 or 4 times to comprehend it.
He said that my emotions will be all out of whack for awhile. That I will be a very emotional person. Which, honestly, explained a lot of things. I am a girl, but, even I thought that I was overly emotional...
And, the last, and definitely, most important "disability" I will have is impulse. He said that I will be a very impulsive person. And therefore, when I come up with an idea, I need to stop, think & plan.
Maybe, So, what was your lie? was impulse. Maybe, it was a crazy idea, but I'm ok with crazy.

I got 10 texts today and a comment... All full of lies. Haha. And they were the best 10 texts I think I've ever gotten.

Thank you.

December 5, 2008

I'm so happy to see how well this has taken off!

Thank you to everyone who has texted/sent me their lie.
I love every one I get.


"My lie: I'm okay."

"I told her I wouldn't be mad if she didn't choose me... Truth is, my heart is going to break into a million pieces."

"My mom asked me why I smell like smoke. I said it was because of my friends. It's really because of me..."

"Lie: I didn't ask, not because I didn't get the chance, but because I don't want her there."


"I lied when I told her I didn't cut myself today... I told her I wrote Love so I wouldn't be tempted to cut. But, in reality, the word Love is covering the cuts."

"I lied about having sex when my mom asked."

250-British Columbia
"My lie: I tell him I love him daily, he doesn't know he's not the only "him."

"My lie: I said, "I love you." Worse yet, I tell myself that my ex-husband sends in PostSecrets, kicking himself for leaving us!"

843-South Carolina
"Today (and everyday) I lie about being ok. I'm so depressed that I sleep 12 hours everyday just so I don't have to face reality."


"My lie: I got better.
I'll never go back, but… I've become the person I promised myself I'd never become again.
And it's costing me the love of my life…"

"My lie: I tell people I'm too busy studying, but in reality, I'm just online chatting with complete strangers who make better company than them."

First lie ever!

Thank you, whoever you are, for texting me my first lie ever.

"My lie is that I tell everyone in Narcotics Anonymous that I am 6 months clean, but I drink every weekend."
