Pathological Liar

What do you think of when you hear the words pathological liar? Does a person come to mind that you may know? The trouble with pathological lying is that you never know when they are telling the truth. They do not even give an accurate account of any event without lies in it.  Even if they are caught being untruthful, they continue to deny.  It goes beyond anything normal. I know a man who is a pathological liar. He never tells the truth about anything. The worst part is that people believe him. If you present the facts, he not only denys it all but then claims he is a victim and persecuted.  It is beyond crazy. In the old movie, “Liar, Liar,” Jim Carey is the epitome of a pathological liar. He simply cannot stop. In real life, though, your personality favorite and mine, the narcissist, is the classic in this category. They have to always prove they are right, perfect and know better than anyone else. For example, in 2001 the State of California removed Judge Patrick Couwenberg for his non stop lying to just about everyone.  A lie here and there is one thing, but to never speak the truth is an entirely different matter. People who act this way are maladjusted. They have no idea how to actually function in the real world. Granted the world these days is full of falsehoods but some individuals and groups actually make an attempt at the truth. Look at the royal family. Did everyone believe they were lying about Kate Middleton?  Yes, of course, but they were actually trying to protect her and her children which is an entirely different matter. All the gossip rags have no clue about the truth. The more they exaggerate the more sales they make. It is simple economics. It would be nice to hear the truth most of the time and not a small percentage of the time, don’t you agree? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
