80 Best Quotes about Lies and Liars for When You’ve Been Manipulated


Last Updated on October 12, 2021

If you live long enough, you will experience being lied to and manipulated. You’ve probably told your own little white lies, as well. But even well-meaning deception can eventually balloon into bigger, more wounding lies down the road.

When asked why they do what they do, liars usually reason out that they don’t want to disappoint the other party. That’s why they don’t tell the truth. But in the end, the longer they hold on to those false claims, the more they in fact, deceive themselves.

What To Do for When You’ve Been Lied To

One of the first things you should do once you find out that you’ve been lied to is to keep a calm head. You will feel a lot of things during this time: anger, hurt, confusion, and even denial. These are normal. If you want to talk to someone, seek out someone you trust, or a professional (e.g. your therapist).

Avoid telling the town that you’ve been lied to. Inasmuch as you think it’s justified to snitch against the person who lied to you, two wrongs don’t make a right. You’ll end up stirring gossip, and making others hate your enemy is more juvenile than mature.

If you feel the need to confront the person, do so gently. Ask them for their reasons for the deception. Listen to their side of the story. Of course, make the decision on whether or not to give them the benefit of the doubt. More than forgiving the person who lied to you, you should forgive yourself.

It’s never easy to find out that you’ve been lied to. But know that it wasn’t your fault. Here are some wise quotes about lies and liars that should shed a little bit of light as to what you’re going through.
