People lie. It's what they do. You kind of expect it. But what about someone you cared for, someone who said they never lie to you? Someone who said they never hurt you. How are you supposed to be okay with that? In a relationship the number one rule is don't lie. If you have something to say they say it. You're supposed to trust one another and be able to talk about anything. When someone starts lying, it causes a rift in the relationship and it's hard for the other person to trust you. That's where the issues come in. How can you be with someone you don't trust? How can the one person who was supposed to be your person lie to you like it was nothing? What's even worse is having 2 people lie to you. A s/o and a friend. I try to see the good in people, it's how I've always been and how I will continue to be. However, that sometimes makes others feel like they can take advantage of me and my kindness. I recently had a situation where I was lied to by someone I thought would never lie to me. It hurt, that's a given, but what hurt more is the fact that said person continued to lie to me even after being caught red handed. It takes 2 to tango, ever hear of that? It means that when a situation arises and lying is being done in a relationship it takes 2 people who are in kahoots to scheme up such lies. So tell me, how does one go about trusting someone who was so quick to lie to the person they loved? Who's to say it won't happen again? Liars and cheats go hand in hand. It sucks, but it's true. Those who lie in a relationship usually do it to cheat. They have some psychological issues where maybe they enjoy the thrill of it all. The fun of sneaking around and not getting caught, but remember everyone talks and sooner or later the truth will set itself free. All you have to do is sit back and let karma handle the rest. Once a cheater always a cheater, and they have to live with that constant fear of having it happen again and again. Don't let someone who lied to you, friend or s/o give you reason to believe everyone is like that. There's a special place in hell for people who enjoy stringing someone along both physically and emotionally. They need to live with their decision. You did nothing wrong. So you keep doing you and seeing the good in others. It will come in handy when you find your perfect soulmate.
