I need advice...

Hey.
I didn't know what category to put this under.


I have a friend, who I love dearly, but has a BIG lying problem.

Almost every word that comes out of that girl's mouth is a lie, and I don't know what to do.

I don't want to lose her friendship, but I do want to bring it to her attention.


What should I do??

Thank you!!

When you catch your friend doing something honest...praise praise praise.  I also think that you should let your friend know that you love them for them and they don't have to try to be something else.

you sound like a good person and just make sure you always let her know she can be herself around you and doesnt have to lie or pretend to be something she is not

If you are pretty close, than you can be direct. Tell her that you need to talk to her about something that you feel is important; that you would like for her to listen to you completely and thoroughly before you have the discussion. (so she knows that it is something serious) Re-affirm your friendship and play up all of her good points, and gently tell her that it bothers you when she embellishes the truth. Ask to hear her side, and make sure that you don't interrupt, so that she can open up to you. I would recommend doing this in private and face to face, so that nothing is lost in text or script translation. That is a tough dilemma. Good luck to you and God bless you for being a caring friend.
