Liars! I cannot stand it when people lie and then you catch them in the lie and they continue to lie thinking you will believe them if they if only make the lie a little more convincing. It is time for people to learn to fess up! If your caught your caught don't continue to make even more of a fool out of yourself. My nephew is a habitual liar. It is like he cannot help himself. He lies even when there is no need to lie that any rational person can think of. He lies so much he forgets who it was he told what lie to and ends up making a total fool of himself. I have no patients for this type of behavior and continue to confront him with ever lie I know he has spoken to myself or others. I am really losing all respect for him. Does anyone know any good ideas to help him? Or can any of you relate to my fustrations?

I hate liars too! Like you say, they get found out in the end, and just don't own up to lying. They just go with what they said in the first place and dig a deeper and deeper hole for themselves. I find that so frustrating. Why do they do it? I really don't know. What's the cure? I don't know that either... unless one day they realise that lying loses them respect and friends, and decide for themselves not to do it any more. I really don't think you can help them if they're not prepared to help themselves and fess up, as you say. Brightest Blessings.

Hi Darkwing, Thanks for posting. I keep hoping that if I keep catching him he will be embarrassed enough to quit. But it is hard for me because like you I don't understand liars. Best wishes

Thank you for BR my friend. I think liars find it difficult to quit because once they've started spinning their web of deceit, they can't find a way out of it, and they don't realise they're even doing it in the end. They need to stand outside themselves and look at the big picture. However, good luck here. Brightest Blessings.

There comes a time when everybody must open their eyes and look at themselves.You can not do this for them.Your cousin will not change until they WANT to.At least you know the truth about your cousin and take that into consideration when dealing with him.As he matures,he hopefully will see his errors and correct them.If not,then limit your contact with him and always take everything with a grain of salt.
