Why do men lie? Not only do they lie, but they also feel it’s okay as long as the woman doesn’t find out. “What you don’t know doesn’t hurt.” Oh really????
And then later when we do find out, it hurts even more than if we had been slapped in the face and kicked around the block a few times. Yes, I have someone in my life just like that.
Most people don’t know that my husband is a pathological liar. He lied when I first met him. I thought he was just trying to protect me, UNTIL he continued to lie about stupid crap that made no sense. It’s as though this man lives to lie.
Everyone I know thinks he’s a real catch. That I am the luckiest lady in the world to have found a man to marry that wanted me along with my kids. What they don’t know is how much I have grown to detest him. Lies turn feelings into hate. Hate is a strong word. People say that if you hate someone you must really love them. I do love him, very much; but I’m no longer in love with him the way it was, before the years and years of dishonesty.
This is the first time I’ve said this out loud to myself, and dared to write it on paper…or computer. I feel I needed to do this. It’s very depressing to hold all this stuff inside and not be able to say how I feel. It helped a little.
