Just wanted to get everyone's idea of what constitutes a lie, and whether it's ok or not. Where you draw to line at white lies, kind lies, and destructive lies?

There are no white lies, kind lies, or destructive lies. A lie is a lie - no matter how dressed up one makes it. The truth is always better, truth never changes; lies do and you have to remember which lie you told and to whom.

to me honesty is the best policy. once you start lying you have to keep it up to cover yourself. I would tell that person to fess up and quite all that lying stuff, what does it accomplish?

What I make of it is - "and you still allow them in your life?"

I am amazed at us....how we allow them to even have access to us - and would even ask the question..."why do you do this to me?"

Where that question comes from is - you're thinking something is up with "you" as to - why they do this? Otherwise, you'd just be done with them. Why else ask the question?

If someone robs you out on the street - are you going to go see them in prison and go - why did you do this to me, I need to know?

No, you probably won't and the reason for that is - there would be no personal relationship going on. When in all reality - even more reason to cut someone off with you if they are constantly lying to you and are close in. Why cares "why" they did it?

If you expend the energy in trying to understand this - then they suck you in even more.

People lie - because they can. Because they are "hiding" who they really are from you and themselves. Because they won't look at themselves in the mirror no matter what. Because they have illicit motives and it's everyone else's fault. Go get People of the Lie by Dr. Scott Peck - is under the psychology section, about $12. Pretty much answers all your questions about - why people lie. Good book.
