The problem with lies is this: You start off telling little tiny white lies
, over time, they get bigger and bigger, until suddenly you've told a whale of a tale
. Eventually you start forgetting what is a lie, and what is truth, until suddenly one day, you dont know the difference.
You tell lies fluently and believe they have happened. When asked about it years later, you repeat the lie because you get to the point where you remember the lie happening. After so many lies and so many years, you dont remember the difference. You start making your own reality within your embellishments.
This has happened to two people that I know very well, but rarely talk to for just that reason.
