My brain is scattered and I’m behind today and I want to treat this blog like a fancy tumblr right now, so buckle up, strap in, and let’s talk about deception…
We have all encountered a pathological liar in our lives, but what I have never been able to understand is why do some people choose deception as their primary strategy?
How do liars keep track of all their lies when I can’t remember what I had for breakfast yesterday morning?
I tend to hate definitive labels that portray certain traits as fixed, including the word “liar”. Has anyone ever met a liar who has changed though?
Are the ends of telling a big lie (since of course, yes, all humans do tell small lies), justification enough for the means of deceiving people who are close to you?
Out of curiosity, I researched the most common lies and found them uninspiring and lacking the weight of what I consider so be a truly morally harmful lie.
Can a lie truly harm no one? I wonder.
