The act of lying to your partner can be more of a self-sabotaging act than it can be of a self-preserving nature, according to psychiatric professionals. Many individuals lie to raise their status among others, or to preserve how the fake image they have painted for others. By doing so, trust is forever destroyed once the lies begin to come out. For this reason, it is important to be honest both with yourself and with your partner in a relationship.
If a person wants to experience the full benefits of a bonded and intimate relationship, focus on truth and honesty to build a solid foundation.
- Everyone lies – whether we like it or not, it’s a fact of human nature to which everyone succumbs at some point.
- However, in a committed relationship, the impacts of lying are taken to a whole new level.
- As such, we must be deeply cognizant of the impacts that such behavior can have on our intimate relationships.
“But as fundamental as lying seems to be to human beings, trusting relationships are also a basic human need and as we all know, lying destroys trust.”
