Have you ever been wronged by a liar and then demanded an explanation?

Asked by EmptyNest (2028 points ) November 18th, 2011

This once happened to me until I asked myself, what good is a liar’s explanation? I’d rather wonder. Has this ever happened to you? Were you able to let it go?

It would depend on if the liar was a chronic liar (in which case asking for an explanation is like asking for another lie) or it was unusual in which case asking for an explanation might shed some light on their behavior.

YES… It was lame

If I can’t trust someone to be straight with me, then their view means nothing to me. So I don’t give a crap what they think.

Sounds like your liar is deluded and thinks his story is true. As such, there’s no point in talking. It’s crazymaking.

Yes, It only confirmed how much of a pathological liar they really were.
Just knowing that, allowed me to put it to rest.

Yes but I didn’t demand an explanation. Instead I let them know why I was not having anything to do with them any longer. I told them I don’t need and extra trouble makers in my life, it’s too short and right now for me, feels too good.
