Many times I have spent hours it seems looking in the mirror wondering how if people can see the chump tattoo on my forehead and I can't.
If you know me even the tiniest bit, have spent any time around me then you know I listen and listen well. Most times I am dissecting your sentence before the thing finishes coming out of your mouth.
I know they have heard of me speak of how I normally treat liars. I don't have anything to do with them unless I am forced to by work circumstances or familial relationships. Even then you will notice the gorge between us because I will mostly likely stop speaking to you all together.
Recently, I've had to deal with my ex. This man has known me for 20+ years. Yet and still he will LIE like a rug to me, expect me to believe it and think it is fine. He knows I will catch him. He knows THIS! He knows I examine every word and sentence. He has been in an argument with me and I have quoted him back his statements verbatim. Yet and still this man has the audacity to lie to me about simple things.
I once asked him why he couldn't tell me the truth. This fool said "I hate telling you the truth when I know it will hurt you."
The truth is he can't tell me the truth because he hates to admitting the truth is he didn't do as he was asked/told/supposed to/promised.
My problem with liars is that they NEVER understand that a lie hurts me more than the truth. L
I have to thank the liars in my life they have improved my analytic and research skills over the years.
Do you feel like people lie to you? Do you have a three strikes your out rule? What do you do when they lie? Do you cut them out of your life? Do you ignore them for awhile? Am I harsh because I could go the rest of my life without speaking to the people who have lied to me?
