I've never been good at lying...I wasn't born with a "poker face" and despite my best efforts, always seem to wear my heart on my sleeve and my feelings on my face!
Anytime I have tried to lie, it has backfired. I do try to have tact..like if a friend asks my opinion...
It's fear or pride their after.
Or they don't know how to tell the truth.
Or they're afraid of facing the truth of what may happen to them.
I rather be told the truth than to hear a bunch of lies. Even if it hurts....
At what point do you get so far in that you can't even look back anymore?
I have never understood it and if they try and diagnose it with some syndrome I won't acknowledge that either.
it's simply bad behavior, the end.
