Most people lie I think to make themselves seem more intelligent, to hide something they are ashamed of, to be desireable, to hide there true feelings. It can go on and on. The main thing is people should learn that lying only makes things worse. The truth will always find a way to come around and bite you in the @$$.
People lie because they feel ashamed so they hide what the truth is and when they lie, sometimes it feels better because that certain person does not know.Normally when it comes to lying, there was something bad that happened and they don`t want to get in trouble but they are.Its worse to lie than tell the truth.
