How do you handle when you know someone has lied to you?

I consider someone lying to me to be an insult to my intelligence, like they think I’m stupid enough to buy into their bullshit, which means that I’ve confronted several times in my life.

Let it go. Never trust them again.

I don’t just have one reaction. If someone lies to me out of love and wanting to protect me, I’ll forgive them. If they’re telling tall tales and I find them entertaining, I’ll listen and enjoy the story. If they’re lying to take advantage of me, then they are cut off forever. I might confront them first, or not.

Neither?

Make it increasingly hard for them to keep consistency in their ongoing lies.

Neither. I put it in my back pocket, and wait for a chance to return the favor. Nothing spells revenge like the 'ol Hershey Switcheroo.

With family or friends, I like to have a one on one discussion to talk about the situation. At work, I try to do the same, but sometimes, I have to confront. I might have to do that this morning. I just don’t like it.

Surprisingly well. I’m a bit concerned. I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. It usually does with this one.

It depends on who it is and the significance of the lie. If it's a family member, I'm going to confront them and work it out or ket it go. I'm not very patient with friends anymore because I've had way too many lie to me about very significant things.

These were best friends who decided to have affairs with my ex-husband. I believe a cut off was in order. Him included.

Sorry, that was extremely direct. Had anyone been honest with me, I could've handled many things differently but no one was.

Yikes, that’s terrible.
I’m sad you experienced that.. your growth and reflection really shines through tho 💪🏽💚

I cut them off. There is no need to confront. Honesty is sacred. If someone wants to 'repent' they can come to me. Otherwise...people don't change.

It depends. It's probably best to confront them, though.

Mostly cut them off.
Except for a few that I love too much to eliminate
