People tell lies to cover up things about themselves that they are afraid they don’t want people to know. Fear keeps them caught up in these lies so they have to continue to tell more lies to cover the ones they’ve already told. Perhaps they feel like they will be judged based on the secret they are trying keep. It doesn’t matter one way or the other to me….stop hiding and tell your truth. Our paths cross for a reason, you have something that you need to share with another person just as they have something they need to share with you. Nothing on this earth happens by accident. We need to start accepting that.
