Remember how we used to chant that when we were younger when we caught our friends telling a lie?
Who do people lie?
Lying is morally wrong and is always discouraged, but it seems to come so naturally to human beings.
People lie for many reasons, personal, as well as social and here are some reasons:
* to make themselves sound good
* to escape punishment
* to look agreeable / avoid disagreements with others
* to maintain good relations
* to protect privacy about oneself
* as a joke or to fool someone
But some people are compulsive liars. They acquire a habit of lying and they tend to lie in any and every situation.
I know someone who has been lying ever so often. I really dont understand. Always using someone else as a front for the lying .. like saying "so and so" wants it or said so, when I know it is not true, coz this "so and so" is too busy with everyday life to be bothering about what she has just lied about. It may be a harmless lie, but the more she does it, it is beginning to get on my nerves, and as a result everything she tells me has me doubting her now. And she thinks I am so dumb and do not know she is lying when she does. URGH!!
