"A Soldier's Home" This story give some light why we lie to ourselves and others in an effort to somehow affect how others will view us. For example, Krebs states that he wants his life to go smoothly which was a lie. Because after serving in the military he knew better than anyone else that life could never go on smoothly. We are a lot like Krebs in feeling one way about an issue but express something totally different on the outside. For example, we might hate a perfume a friend is wearing and lie and say it smells good.
