The Chronic Liar
Not all lies are the same and not all liars are pathological. Some lies are justifiable, while others aren’t. Some are major, while others are minor. Some are done with good intentions, while other lies are employed with malice. Some lies pose irrevocable harm, while others actually prevent damage to the otherwise innocent.
Yet when used chronically, lying can lead to more than just deception. It can wreak havoc on a relationship, create an untrustworthy and unreliable environment and diminish one’s sense of reality.
Before one turns to lying as a main form of communicaton, the real question they ask themselves shouldn’t be, what will I be gaining? But rather, what could I be losing?
