I have taken the 5 precepts a few years ago. I have recently realized I was telling lies for years to myself and others by continuously exaggerating things (as part of my job) and being willfully blind towards things (as a coping mechanism mostly). I was putting in effort into telling the truth and describing things as accurately as possible, so the realization that I was still continuously breaking the precepts for all this time was kind of a shock. Especially how I was repressing important things in my mind (really thinking I was doing good to others by doing so) instead of facing them.
What methods are there for a lay person to deal with these offenses, retake the precepts and reestablish Sila?
Any advice on how to work properly in jobs where getting ahead means being able to repeat bullshit the loudest?
