I want to get this off my chest. I know lying is bad. However, I feel completely justified in lying. Whether or not that makes me a bad person isn't for me or anyone else to decide. You can judge my actions for what it's worth.
I choose to to lie to my girlfriend. I don't lie about big things, I'm not cheating on her or anything of the sort. I lie about small insignificant things in everyday life.
Why? Why do I lie about small things? Not to shift the blame but I ended up dating someone who happens to get emotional and angry over insignificant things. As an example of one that just happened, my girlfriend was talking but I wasn't actively listening. She will get insanely mad if you don't actively listen to every detail she says. So, to pass the time and the nonsense she was spewing out of her mouth, I decide to scroll on facebook. I would periodically say, "yes, okay, great" to seem like I was engaged. She questioned how engaged I was and was noticeably getting upset. She said, "are you even listening to me!?! It seems like you don't care! If you don't care then just hang up, I don't want to talk with you." So I responded "oh no I wasn't listening I was reading a message you sent to me". That response seemed to buy some time. She went on a tangent about how her classmates treat her poorly and they don't actively listen to her. She then turns her school problems around and blames me for her problems from other people. So in the end, did it work out? Maybe.
Mind you this is common. She gets angry at me at least twice a day and thinks it's the end of the world. "OH MY GOD YOU LEFT A FORK IN THE SINK!! WE CAN NEVER BE TOGETHER!" kind of reaction is pretty common.
So I lie. I lie because my girlfriend constantly overreacts to honesty. She wants me to be honest, but gets insanely angry if it's not exactly what she wants to hear. So I lie.
I lie to save my own skin from her stupidity. Can't help it. I can't stand the hypocracy of wanting the truth but yelling at someone for being honest.
