I lie about my grades, whether I played a video game or not or just watched a walkthrough, about my family, I don't want to lie but I'm so scared someone will just yell at me or hit me. I feel like people only know 40% of me and the rest are lies. My parents divorced and my dad was a drunk and my mom was unemployed but he's gotten better and my mom just got a job. I don't think I have told only truths to any person. I've lied to my parents, friends, people I just met, everyone. Am I a pathological liar?

Lying is not a shameful activity; it is an art. A way of weaving stories, and not even ones that are purely made up, moreso different truths. You take all the points a person knows, then join them together into something new, a reality that could be, and as you shape the stories, you shape the world people around you perceive. You must admit there is a certain... satisfaction... that comes with it. And I suspect that, whether you admit it to yourself or not, you actually enjoy it. My advice? Become more skilful, practice your art and weave beautiful masterpieces! But keep at hand some person to whom you speak the truth, to be certain you remember what is real. And do not forget to take advantage of the way word spreads, to plant strategic thoughts in prying ears with running mouths. Quite easily a fly on the wall may be snared in a web of lies.0
