When people lie just to make themselves feel better

Blog Living

It amuses me –> this thing people have about lying; about placing the right amount of poison to wreck another person. Compulsive liars and people who are obsessed with protecting their refined image and their status in life, despite knowing what they did was “morally” wrong. Wrong to who? Themselves, of course, and wrong to those they have victimized.


I have met many people who are either in-love with themselves and their elite status. It matters a lot to them that they associate themselves with others just for the purpose of improving their social status. Even when it comes to their lovers, they choose them based on the luxuries that they can enjoy, and not based on the person’s personality.


Some are willing to climb the ladder just to have favorable business connections, and many are willing to talk a load of bullshit just to secure a contract or a promotion. Who are you fooling? Yourself? Who are you hurting? Definitely not you, but the people you fuck, and the lies that you spread to others about others. Almost everyone has an answer to everything, yet the moment you vomit your hypocrisy, people know that you are no better than the shit that you let loose in the toilet.


We all know someone who has done something to intentionally hurt another person. We also know someone who is willing to fucking flirt every woman that would give him the position of power just to make himself happy, or surround himself with untold wealth. Yet we also know people who do not care about what happens to other people, especially those living in hardship or in utter misery. We would gladly see people fucking fry in the bonfire just so that we are not seen as meddlers in other people’s affairs. Well what can I say to that? That is life, fortunately that is not my life, that is YOURS.
