Liar!

WHY do people lie? They say sometimes it's better to lie. In my own perspective all people do. No matter how we try not to but we can't. Then there it comes, nobody is perfect. If we are the victim, for example our bf/gf lied to us, do we expect to be happy? Of course not, but how come whenever we lie to someone we are happy? ahh, maybe because we have this demonic mind!

All of us have done lying, we do lie because we have an intention to hide something or to protect the people that we love. Some people do it for their own sake, to escape from the mistakes that they have done. There is white lies, we do white lies when we have to do it in a complicated situation or when we just have to protect ourselves.

Sometimes we could say that liars are selfish but then from the other point of view liars are just doing the right thing.

Satan is the father of all liars! So people lie because they are born sinners and they are of our father the devil. Ha!ha!ha! But before we feel so upset about it, let me just remind each one that we can always get out of the bondage of Satan. Who says we can't get over lying. We can always do. Just remember that we you lie, you are like Satan and see if you don't keep your lips from lying.

LIES .... how I hate and yet it struck me so bad these days ... in fact I knew I knew the truth and still remember me ... why I accepted? .. I'm hoping maybe I am wrong. .. or maybe for me not affect the lie of his own with nothing ...... but even so ... I can not stop asking myself .. WHY ???.... I'm trying to understand why .. and they are in a certain extent (apparently not for me ).... but how can you lose something to build on a lie .. even before you start ...? What can forgive or not difficult? Tough question, especially when the person in question is dear to you .... now ... I wonder who to blame and forgive at the same time, he or she did it myself as I accepted .. I keep saying I should get over this thing ... even for that which did not so serious and usually does not affect me why ... but something in me ... do not let me simply grounds that he lied for something more or less minor makes me not trust him if he did it once with such serenity, why would not do it and second that if it does not already Further confusing thoughts ... .. too many questions and uncertainties due to a lie that I helped in some way. To realize that "nobody is perfect ... and that I would have been in a position to forgive him and what he did for my turn as I wanted to be forgiven? Was this to be the limit? Who Knows and Who Cares ..... Any way does not matter ...

That's just human nature no human has not told a lie even small kids have all told lies. A person just can't go with out lying. In fact many of us lie everyday with out noticing it.

I believe there are various levels of lying. For instance your significant other might ask you how she or he looks in a certain outfit. You being a loving person might say you look great when really you really think that they are not doing those clothes justice. I dont really think that type of lie is ok in that instance since you are trying to make them feel good with real no harm.

I think when I lie it is to protect the person from the painful truth. I know with adrian I came clean with everything because I don't want baggage holding me back. Lies are wrong and can ruin a great relationship

Liar is bad. - Lying sometime is to cover mistake to prevent more problems.
People lie for many reasons some are bad and some are half bad.I guess one lie is to cover another lie and start a chain of lies. Sometime we lie to save from problems.Sometime people lie just to prevent from hurting people because truth sometime hurts while lie can be sugar coated and sweet to the ears.Honestly does not been license to be rude while lying is bad also.

Human always lied.Lying sounds so bad but always remember that there is also a positive side of lying.But before we discuss the positive side,lets give first what are the negative impact of lying.Lying makes a person irresponsible,it breaks human expectation,and most of all it hurts.On the other hand we also have what we called white lie in which sometimes we do it to protect our love one or our reputation.But in the end I dont encourage everyone to lie,I just want to emphasize that in every action that we do there is a proper consequences for that.Good luck.

I do think that many times when people lie, they do in fact convince themselves in their mind that they are telling the truth. There are many people who lie, but in their own demented world view, they think that they are telling the truth. They have gotten so good at lying, that if they should tell the truth, they feel like they are lying to someone. It might seem twisted, but I honestly think that is the case. Then there are many people who lie just so they can protect others from the harsh reality of life. Unfortunately, while that may be a good idea in theory, it is really not the best idea in practice. There are just many times where a lie is just going to make things worse. Better to get the truth out there on the table and the consequences may be less severe. Yet, people never learn these lessons. It is really frustrating.
