Haven’t you wanted to say that to someone who you know is just making up a story?? You hear them speaking but you can see the words, “I’m lying!”, coming right out of their mouths. Now I’m not the kind of person who’s going to call them out but I’m certainly thinking it and secretly wishing someone else will. Is that evil of me?
Are you the kind of person who could do that? If you are, we need to be friends. I can’t do it. I can’t even do that with my own family because I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. I don’t want to embarrass anyone, but there is something inside me that is silently screaming, “SHUT UP!!! I don’t believe a word you are saying and neither does anyone else.” Then my catholic conscious kicks in and tells me how rude and inconsiderate I would be for saying that so now I’m feeling guilty for even thinking those thoughts. Great, now I’m going to hell unless I go to confession.
I’m not even the one who is lying but somehow I end up in hell because they brought out the worst in me with their made up story. And why do they do it? Attention, good or bad, they want attention and I’m giving it to them! I’m being held hostage with their garbage because I don’t want to make a scene. So what do I do? I make up my own lie so I can get away from them, fantastic, I’m still going to hell! How have you gotten yourself out of that kind of situation? Seriously, I need help with it.
