Sometimes it’s not worth arguing with someone who believes their own lies. How can you spot these liars?
They like hearing the sound of their own voice, and really don’t appreciate yours
People who are self-absorbed don’t really care about anyone except themselves. They get involved in their stories and if you interject, they bring it back to them. Be careful not to get involved with people like them; it’s a one-way street, and you deserve more.
They say things that contradict each other and they are not even aware of it
Because everything revolves around them (or so they think) and they likely have an opinion about everything. They may not even know what they said the day before. If you focus on what they are saying, you may notice that things don’t hold together. Yesterday, they could have made a statement that is in direct opposition to what they are saying today.
If you point out the lies, they deny it
Try to bring up the contradictions and they will make it seem like YOU have it all wrong, or like you are not understanding what they are saying. If you assert yourself, they will try to put you down, because they most likely are trying to maintain their image. Don’t waste your energy – you need it for more important things.
You know you can’t trust them with anything
Never doubt what your gut is telling you. You know you can’t trust them even if they temporarily try to appease you (listen to you, flatter you, try to “make nice.”). Don’t believe a word. Focus your attention on people who are trustworthy and say what they truly mean.
