Pragmatic or necessary? 'everybody lies, everybody...'


Considering myself a "new" to this culture, recently has been brought to my attention " do not believe all, everybody lies, everybody..."(The rest you know.) Can you help me here, please. In essence, can you trust someone who once lied (to you )?!

    Lying is wrong period , but we also have to face what type of lies because , there is a lie

    out of fear of hurting another , or a lie to save face, or a lie just to manipulate another out of selfishness.

    Some people call holding back info lying.

    Dana, forgiveness is easy part, forgetting is something which remains deep in memory and seemingly never leaves. (Why should "I" or how can "i" believe this time?) - crosses my mind if dealing with habitual liar.

    Korneliya something as your phrase "compulsory liars'' has initiated this question "Pragmatic or necessary" since in present era in social-political life rules "compulsory habit" presenting what isn't true.

    Rich,thanks for smile, "some intentional, some by omission," as if lying is OK if harmless. This " normal" idea after forgiving is strange to me, we do not forget easily a harm done being " misled" though relationship/ business/ acquaintances go on
