Is it harder to forgive someone after they have lied to you so much?
I do not like liars. I am very big fan on just tell me truth no mater what.
I have had people lie to me, I turn the other cheek for a little fib, a second one depending on how big the lie is I let slide, but the third lie. Three stikes your out.
I had a pretty close friend, that continuely would lie to me. Her family was pretty close to mine, and we loved doing things together. My so called friend would make up excuses, in great detail why she could attend something or go somewhere. I don't know why she had to o in great detail, the bigger the detail the more chances of getting caught in a lie. She would then go on Facebook and talk about what she was really doing hour by hour not even thinking of others reading her post. It got worse and worse. I understand if you just want to do something with your family, or just want to stay in but lieing is not needed. I am a mother too, I understand I can't make it to everything, and my family will always come first. If you don't tell a lie, you don't have to worry about remembering it.
I am over with this friend, she has hurt me and my other friends, she has reached out to me in a email, a cc other friends on it, wanting to be friends again. If she was serious about being a friend, she could have picked up a phone or written me a personal letter apologizing for her actions.
What do you think, should I forgive and forget, or keep the negative person out of my life and go back to not communicating with her. I know this sounds like high school, and it is a bunch of silliness.
Would you give a friend that has done you wrong, and lied to you and your friend a 4th chance?
