Those who are known to you for years, do you believe all of them?

Hi there... Their are a couple that are genuine, as for the rest, I kind of know already that they're lying and spinning yarns just to earn a brownie point, but hey they're not fooling but themselves, probably why I choose to hang with the positives and genuines... Have a good one...

These all are matters of perception. In a true sense, every thing like lies and trues are the perceptions of the teller, based on that the teller feels good to deliver. And definitely the teller is a different person, so he cannot be like you. To be in society, we have to bear with crores and crores of such lies. Our political leaders lie, bureaucrats lie, journalists lie, and so on. But we either knowingly or unknowingly accept those lies. Live on them, with them and for them too. Then?

Correct. Everyone lies but not always. Thus, it is a part of life. Truths and lies both are there around us in the world. And we have to be with them. Thus, we have to learn the trick of tolerance up to a certain extent. What do you feel?

That is a big NO, I can not understand for the life of me why anyone would lie to me about anything there is no reason in it. I can understand children telling there fibs, even teenagers, but adults can not figure it out. But I am a good reader when it comes to people so I can for the most part read them.

Even then there are problems. Your reading cannot be true always. Because things change with time, situation and company. Agreed?

To be honest, I don't. It's not like I don't want to, but I tend to read people really well, and after knowing them for so long, I can usually pick-up when they are lying to me, or trying to get over on me. Sucks, but it's the way of life ya' know!

Correct. This is the way of life. But, even then, I feel whenever it is in your lot, you will have to face troubles even from very known fellows. Thus, it too does not provide any security. Don't you feel?
