Why do people lie so much?
They don't want people to know the truth.
Because the truth hurts.
Makes life easier, there are lots of things people can't change and don't need to be told, etc.
to get out of trouble.
If people almost always told the truth, then if someone lied it would be a lot more believable. Kinda like The Invention of Lying, that comedy movie.
cause they dont wanna face the truth
usally it benefits them
it can be several reasons1. they like to hurt people2. one lie turns to 20 lies3. pathetic4. they need excitement on the expense of other peoples emotions5. too much free time on their hands
I personally lie to stay out of trouble and for fun. Its kind of like an acting exercise. Most go for the first though.
They can have thousands reasons... but above all they are coward, they don't have courage to face the world. They try to hide themselves behind dark curtains of lie.
