What do you do with the pathological liar? There are several people who just can’t seem to comply with telling the truth. Do you cut these family members and friends off, or do you work to rehabilitate them? The reasons for the excessive lying falls into a number of categories:
- Dishonest By Nature
- Something to Hide
- Hidden Agendas
- Mental Illness
- Substance Abuse
Do you have a friend, spouse or lover that continuously lies? Do you feel like you should cut these type of people off? Does the old saying “A leopard can’t change its spots” still hold? If you set limits, will this make some things change in your relationship?
Now let me hear your thoughts on this very important issue. Please post your comments on the blog and help me stimulate some hearty and interesting discussion.
If any of you are in a relationship with a pathological liar, this tension can lead to depression, anxiety and even a “nervous breakdown.” Take the Dr. Owens, M.D. Pre-Screen Mental Health Assessment and check your mental health status!
