Why do we lie even after we are adults??????

So why do we still feel that we have to lie even after we adultand take care of or self. I know that we meet people everday that it's just what they do lie,cause they live in there own world. But why lie to anyone at all it's not like when you were little and you got the cookie and mom said no and you did anyway or when you went out the window to be with your friends. We are past that point in our lives that we don't have to sneek out or sneek and get the last cookie cause we take care of your self. But you have to be careful more now then before cause people will lie just as they breath every day all day. What is something that you've lied about and now that your to that point in your life you can look bac and say why in the hell did i lie about somthing so small and un important. If your not careful you could start lying and it's become's a habit and you'll end up all alone. Would love to hear some of the lie's we have told.

As adults, you will probably find that the lies stem from either insecurity, fear, or envy. There is also the pathological liar, the ones that don't even know they are doing it, and go so far as to believe their own lies. But, for the most part, it's for one of the first 3. We lie about our looks.. you know the ones.. w/out photos.. so that others won't reject us; we lie about who didn't get the report in on time so that we don't loose our jobs, and some even lie about their incomes, they don't want to seem too poor among the rich.. or vise versa... and even these examples aren't dead-set.. as most can be used for examples of more than one reason..

At least that's been my experience.

I think that guy is right. Most people lie because of their insecurities. But it has become our culture. You lie so as not to offend others. Lying is a common occurnce these days and is widely excepted. It is also done to meet one's own needs. But I think you hit it on the head when you said why would you want to look back on your life and say why did I lie about something so dumb.

The funniest people who lie, are the ones that get caught on camera. Like on cheating shows. The person cheating is approached by the accuser and is asked, why they did it. The cheater denies it and lies more. Then the video is shown. Can't deny that, right? wrong! They still try to lie...ahh thats not me they say. Are people really that stupid. In my opinion liars suck. Sure I have told a small lie here or there. I think we all have. But when you get caught at least come clean about it.

Here's the bottom line .. we lie because we can justify it. It's that simple ... if it can be a benefit to us via the senses or one or all of the seven deadly sins, we will lie.

Think about it in another way ... is it better to lie and get away with it or to tell the truth and be punished? It all depends on your view.
