    I lie constantly. I lie to my family

    and the couple of friends that I have. I lie about small things and big things. I don't know how to stop myself. No one believes me of trusts me anymore, and I can't blame them. I need help but don't know where to turn. This is really a sickness.

    I want to be able to lie

    Am I really a bad liar,

    or just bad for lying? If I only tell the truth, and you trust everything I say, would that constitute or make good for you to believe that I am a good or moral person? That if I lie, I am not?If my truth only hurts you, and does you no good, a lie in a statement shouldn't...

    This is mostly because I believe

    that your lies will find you, so I always tell the truth or tell nothing at all. If I try to lie to someone, they can usually break me down pretty fast.

    I can not lie. I tried I ended up having a red

    face and a smile and I couldn't stop laughing. I only lie when I'm upset, hurt, mad and scared. It's hard trying to prove you are okay when you're not.

    I don't see the point in lying about anything.

    Just be up front with everyone. If you are afraid of hurting someone's feelings then be considerate of there feeling when being honest and up front.

    at manipulating people using lies. I can't imagine being able to keep track of what's "true" and "false" for any given person, I know for sure I would screw up.

    I lied last when I was 12 years to my mom.

    But she just had to look into my eyes and she knew that I´ve told her a lie. Since this time I´ve never lied anymore. :-)

    matter how bitter it sounds is always better,thats what I have learnt so far. So going by what I said.. say the truth always,although nowadays learnt a middle way,which is "Escapism".. For people I know who cannot handle the truth..

    I never really was good at lying.

    At a young age I found it absolutely pointless to lie. It's harder to keep your stories straight. If you're honest, people can be mad for your honesty and you don't have anything to feel guilty about. I love not feeling guilty. I'm honest about everything. Good and bad. That's...

    Lying and being lied to are clear signs

    that you do not respect the person with whom you are speaking to. There is no need to lie, no need to be cruel. if you are speaking to me, is because I am allowing you into my life and you are allowing me into yours. This is a privilege, don't abuse it or you will lose it...

    I don't know why, but every time

    when I'm forced to lie, I have this guilty conscious inside me that screams at me to stop doing so. If I go through with it, that feeling of uneasiness follows me. I'm not sure why this happens, but this makes it hard for me to lie. If need be, I try to twist and bend my words...

    Unless it's absolutely necessary, which is a rare occasion... Generally I'll only lie in the interest of self preservation. I'm very honest and at times too honest. These days I'm blunt and tell it like it is... I don't see too much point in sugar coating things sometimes. Plus...
