Erosion of one’s soul


untitled“The truly scary thing about undiscovered lies is that they have a greater capacity to diminish us than exposed ones. They erode our strength, our self-esteem, our very foundation.”
― Cheryl Hughes

Why do some people find such comfort in lying and how can they live with themselves knowing they are deceiving friends, family, and other loved ones?

Isn’t it better to simply live your life honestly with no repercussions?

I have seen women driven practically to madness because their partner has repeatedly lied to them about their lifestyle, work habits..they lie to avoid consequences of their behavior.  People lie to postpone changes to their lifestyle, they feel entitled, and lastly because they are afraid of losing their loved one.

Lying erodes the soul, it takes away trust and for some people that trust can be irrevocably broken.

Lying comes naturally to most of us, and for some it is perhaps thrilling and ultimately a form of self-preservation.  However, for myself it creates immense guilt, something I prefer to avoid.  I have known individuals who find comfort in their deceit yet if their friend or loved one were to do the same to them then, well…..you get the picture.

In the end if a person is that disrespectful towards you it means they are not serious about the relationship and really could care less about your feelings.  There shouldn’t be any fabrications in any type of relationship.  Too much drama and life is short. Move on, find someone worth your time.
