It is easy to tell others what they expect to hear.
How is your day?
How is work going?
What do you want in life?
House. Stability. Career. Etc.
The impact may not be so bad when it comes to answering "how is your day?"
The danger is becoming busy because you say you are.
Or, getting what you say you want in life, instead of what you actually want.
Easy answers are a bad habit.
Saying the unexpected, or the truth, is not easy.
