"The Ways We Lie" is an essay from Companion Through the Darkness which details the many lies individuals tell themselves and others. "The Ways We Lie" begins with Ericsson's personal experience with lying. She surfaces the need for lies in order to function in everyday life. She admits lying for the relief of her husband and even to keep her job.
"I said, "Oh, fine," knowing one more straw might break his back."
She goes on to describe when she attempted to refrain from telling lies for a week. The result includes her being fired by a client, overdraft bank charges, and the mistrust of a friend. Stephanie then draws comparisons with herself to robbers and untrustworthy politicians. She poses the question: Is one lie more justified than another?
Ericsson continues with the definition of a lie and the many different types of them. The types include: white lies, deflecting, facades, and delusions. She concludes with the realization that lies will always be present unless we, "declare our right to trust." - the essay includes a classification system which includes categories of lies that support her main topic
