I will never understand liars. To tell half truths, blatant lies, or lies by omission takes such effort, is very self-serving, and only hurts people in the end.
What's the point?
Grow up. Be straight with people. Gently, tell it like it is. Don't play mind games. No one appreciates being lied to.
This act is a nonrecoverable in my book because all trust is broken. Liars are Losers. Hmm. I need to make bumper stickers. BRB.
