Crocodile Tears

Have you ever met someone who became so complacent about lying?

Well, we all do.

Today, I would like to share some of the red flags I myself experienced firsthand.

Though this is not a 100% guarantee that you will be able to catch the person if he in the first place already mastered the art of lying.

Meaning to say, he already got accustomed in making lies perhaps due to peer pressure, family expectations, and or high standards/ requirements either from school or work.

But the buttom line is, whether there’s a valid reason behind it or not, lying is never a good idea and shouldn’t be tolerated.

So without further ado, here are some techniques you can do about it:

  • Make an eye to eye contact

Do you know that according to psychology, the person who is not telling the truth cannot maintain an eye to eye contact?

You may also have observed that his body is shaking or his eyes are somewhere else because of thinking of other ways to reason out.

  • Know if he always acts like a victim

Be alert especially at times when a person acts in such a way that made you feel that you are the one attacking him without any basis or solid proof.

For some occasion, he may also do the “fake tears” thing in order to make you feel even worse!

Like you are the person who is a war freak who doesn’t even know how to discuss things in a nice and friendly manner.

Sounds ridiculous, right?

  • Does he make a lot of excuses?

Been there, done that!

And I know how it feels whenever someone is trying to cover up his made up lies.

In fact, I had known one who lied on me several times.

Though I cannot put everything here in details, but let me share with you how I get even more paranoid and suspicious about the way he lies.

The first thing I could vividly remember is that, he cannot get a job because of high requirements in working abroad.

Second, his family needs him more in the house so he gave up his dreams; also to give way for his brother to take his place for the meantime.

Third, he became fed up of trying because of so much failures and disappointments that he faced along the way.

He then blame me for being so concerned about him to the point of calling me such a nagger; giving him a lot of unsolicited advice and so and so forth.

Being in that kind of relationship is toxic and depressing.

But also keep in mind that this scenario does not only happen in relationship ’cause it could also happen even in family and friends who were driven by pride, jealousy, envy and the like, so you have to be more cautious of giving your trust away.

After all, not everyone can admit to themselves that they are at fault despite the fact of being caught.

I hope I was able to give the reader a clue or at least be of a great help to you to somehow ease your pain and heartache you might be struggling with, ’cause life is still beautiful no matter what.

Here are just some of the things I discovered along the way.

I know, there’s more of this to discuss, so feel free to share your ideas, and experiences with me and kindly leave a comment below.

Gracias!
