The Lies That Bind

"Any story sounds true until someone tells the other side and sets the record straight" Proverbs 18:17

Lies.

They mess with your head and your life and when you live with lies, the lines between truth and falsehood become blurred. Somewhere along the way the lie becomes a truth to the one who tells it. It's a commitment both powerful and pathetic and like a drug you need to tell more to keep it going. The truth so terrifying, the lie must be given new life. It is in that commitment that the liar finds solace, comfort and conviction in the lie that is now their reality.

Now it looks like a truth.
Now it sounds like a truth.
So if it looks and sounds like a truth, then it must be the truth. Right?

Wrong.

It's still a lie and a bigger, fatter lie at that, more destructive than a plague as it eats away at your soul.

Don't be fooled by the fool. The fool makes bad choices and continues to tell you lies to save face. Like the sage gypsy once said, "In a previous life the fool gave you up to the enemy to save himself."

Lucky for me, I survived. I am stronger than the enemy, the fool and a lie.

If you digest the deception and believe, you are doomed. It's that simple. Karma is a pit bull and it will come back to bite you. So if you take the bait, knowing all that you know, you are deserving of the destruction. As pathetic as he and living in the wake of the lying destruction. Don't say I didn't warn you. It is here in print.

Good luck.

You will most certainly need it.

I love it when you post warning shots like this. Its like a chic advertising that the plate will be thrown.

I am wondering who has sense enough to duck. *Joker waves from under the table*

Is it the lies that bind or ---blind?

Joker-Oh, this warning is coming from experience. Unfortunately, I think it's too late.

Walking Man-unfortunately they bind.

Oh, I know liars. They suck the life out of everyone around them!

Moral of the story. . . ???? Can I take a stab at it? Don't listen to the stuff people tell you about others when there is another side. It's all gossip anyway. . . whether truth or lies.

And. . . I like the Joker's comment. . . ::))

I am projecting this into my current situation. Luckily, the liar lies to themselves the most, and in doing so, reveal their true colors more and more as their "truth" and what the world sees are totally different.

My heart goes out to those caught in the web and unable to see their way out.

As George Kostanza said, "It's not a lie....if you believe it."

Hmmm . . . there's definitely much more of a story here.
