From the hot-and-cold dynamics of laughable "courtship" to the little white lies we're indoctrinated to believe are noble---earth humans are casually conditioned to engage in self-deception from young.
Nocebo-Placebo thinking and the inherent dangers of going down this paradoxical path which leads to self-deceptive beliefs and aversive behaviors, especially toward confronting necessary hard, psychical and emotional issues.
Religion (of all kinds, none are an exception) and their half-truths, similarly to propaganda, twist and deceive the human being into a contradictory submissiveness because in the back of the person's head, he/she knows it isn't true, but bows their head in belief out of fear.
The difference between false-positive beliefs to encourage one's self versus confronting truth as is (without giving into pessimism) and then moving ahead vs delusional lying to yourself to achieve a positive result.
It's much better to build one's "soil" of consciousness on truth, even if it's hard because over the course of time, such a consciousness is like a fortress that cannot be broken by the elements of the weather.
