What to say to someone who lied to you

What to say when someone lies to you

Cockney slang for telling lies is porkie pies. Everyone, at some point in their life, has been told a big porkie pie.

Whether it’s a friend or a cheating partner, being betrayed by a liar is hurtful. When you are not a deceitful person it is shocking when someone lies to you because you just aren’t expecting it.

Once someone has violated your trust the relationship may never be the same depending on the size of the lie. You need to decide how much effort you want to put into sorting out the situation, is this a person you want in your life or does the lie make it a deal breaker? It’s true that people treat you like allow them to treat you so you do need to let the person know you are aware of their lack of honesty.

It may not be worth wasting your time trying to sort out a relationship with someone who didn’t value you enough to tell you the truth in the first place. It’s not up to you to educate people on how to be a decent human being, the person should have figured that for themselves long ago.

Let the fibber know that you are well aware that they have lied to you by using one of our clever comebacks below.

Top Ten Comebacks for Liars

  1. I’m sorry if you don’t like my honesty, in fairness I don’t like your lies.
  2. The worst thing about being lied to is knowing that you weren’t worth the truth.
  3. I’m not upset that you lied to me. I’m upset from now on I can’t believe you.
  4. The deeper you dig your lying deceit hole, the farther your lying ass will have to climb out of it.
  5. It’s not the lie that bothers me. It’s the insult to my intelligence I find offensive.
  6. Treat people how you would like to be treated. Karma’s only a bitch if you are.
  7. Lies are lies, big or small.
  8. I respect how honest you appear while lying!
  9. You admitted that you lied, now you’re offended that I don’t believe you.

Narcissists can be difficult people to deal with. It‘s all about them, all the time. They never think of others. It can be painful if you have a narcissist in your life who constantly tramples on your feelings.

Valerie’s cousin, Olivia, who lived in Ireland, had always been self-centred. Val had secretly thought that she was a narcissist after witnessing selfish behaviour for years.

Val was going through a really tough time in her personal life. Her first serious relationship was over. Her boyfriend, whom she had lived with, left her, and she found out that he was seeing another woman behind her back. In his belongings, she found an 8 inch by 11 inch picture of a woman with a big hook nose, who had written on the picture, “To the sweetest man I have ever known.” Val was devastated both by the break up and by the betrayal and could not stop crying.

Olivia had planned to visit and was meeting a guy she met online in London. When she arrived, Val was still feeling very distraught and could not stop crying that her relationship was over.

Olivia did not have any empathy for Val’s situation and could not understand why she was feeling down and wasn’t super sparkly. Olivia said to Val, “Are you just jealous because I have a date?” Val couldn’t believe that her narcissistic cousin could make the worst moment of her life all about her.

If someone keeps ignoring your feelings and making everything about them, you might want to consider making a few changes in the relationship. Here are a few things to say if you get fed up with the narcissist in your life.

What to say to someone who worries what others think

Kind words for someone who WORRIES WHAT OTHER PINK THEM OF THEM

Life is way too short to worry what others think of you. For many people, being overly concerned with what others think about them can be a paralyzing experience. Most of the time, people aren’t thinking about anyone else, they are consumed with their own life.

Anytime someone steps out of their comfort zone and tries something new they are going to feel stretched and uncomfortable. The first time Oprah was on TV it probably wasn’t her best performance, but she worked through those uncomfortable feelings and kept going.

At the end of the day, life is about growth, we all need to step up and challenge ourselves to try new things. Being risk averse because you are afraid that people may slam your ideas, your work or the way you interact in the world isn’t helping you lead your best life.

Everyone has a unique gift to bring to the world and share with others. Not sharing what is special about you is really depriving other people of your gift or talent.

Sure, there may be a few people who criticize you as you embark on a new venture but they are usually the armchair quarterbacks who criticize others while not taking any action in their own life. As Les Brown said, “30 percent of the people will think what you’re doing is great, 30 percent who don’t care and 30 percent won’t be impressed all, so best just get on with it and enjoy your life.

Next time someone is consumed with what other people will think, comfort them with kind words.

What to say to someone who worries what others think

  1. Stop letting poisonous people spoil your happy life! BLOCK, DELETE & FORGET!
  2. A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of a sheep.
  3. What you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you.
  4. You wouldn’t worry so much about what people thought of you, if you knew how seldom they did.
  5. The greatest prison people live in, is the fear of what other people think.
  6. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  7. Not worrying about what other people think is one of the best decisions you will ever make.
  8. The unhappiest people in the world are those who care the most what other people think.
  9. Don’t let the opinions of other people consume you.
  10. People are going to judge you anyway, so forget everyone and just be yourself.

Words of wisdom for your teenager

Ten things to say to your teenager

When you have a teenager in the house there are a lot of things you want them to pass on to them so they can avoid many common pitfalls. Unfortunately, a lot of times teens are not interested in listening, but you can throw out a few words of wisdom now and again and maybe something will stick.

With my own kids, I really want them to take challenges and not be held back by the limits of their own mind or their own peer group. There is a big world out there to go and explore and if they want something they need to take action to make it happen, and not sit around waiting for permission.

In life, if you get the big things right the smaller parts can fall into place. It is important to get the strategy right otherwise you could experience years of frustration. Kids today have so many amazing opportunities to travel, create an online business or follow the traditional route of a university.

It’s an awful feeling when someone you thought was your friend turns out to be your frenemy. There is nothing worse than having someone who is not on your side but is in your inner circle of friends. As soon as you find out that a frenemy does not have your best interests at heart, stop sharing anything personal immediately.

Kara became friends with a girl who had transferred to her college and didn’t know anyone. Being kind, Kara invited the new girl, Lila, to events and parties that her group of friends attended. After a while, she noticed that Lila started hanging out with every one of her friends that she introduced her to without including Kara.

One night Kara found out about a party that Lila was going to via Instagram. When she ran into Lila at Starbucks, she asked if she had plans that evening. Even though Lila had a party planned, she said she had nothing going on and didn’t tell or invite Kara. At that moment, Kara realized that she was a frenemy, not a true friend. Kara was hurt and devastated, and she was done with the friendship.
