Compulsive liars are people who habitually lie for no reason at all. They lie about what they do, how much they make, what they did last night. They embellish, they exaggerate, they make up things. Everybody knows a compulsive liar, where everything that they say has to be taken with a grain of salt because half the things that they say are complete bullshit. Most of the times the things that they lie about aren’t worth lying about. I know a girl that claims she was Prom Queen and Valedictorian of her high school and she brings it up fairly regularly. My cousin went to the same school as her and can verify that she was neither of those. I confronted my friend with the truth, and she denied it and called my cousin a liar and a bitch. Then I took out her high school yearbook and she had to shut up and admit defeat. I wish I could say that she learned her lesson, but she still spins tall tales and false anecdotes every single day. I can’t trust her, so I can’t be her friend. Trust is integral in any relationship. You have to be able to trust your friends, your family, your lover, your coworkers, even public servants. You want to believe what they say is true, and you’ll believe them unless you have a reason not to. And you just can’t trust compulsive liars.
