Ahh,but her lies are most certainly a reflection on me and on anybody else she lies about.Perhaps I didn't make my first post clear on that. My sister lies about others,not just herself.And most definetly there is a time to speak up and a time to keep quiet. I would like to hear from those that have experience with this situation,as like you said,I do react when a lie is told about myself or another.Sometimes they are "harmless" (my mother-in-law was a concert pianist)but most commonly they are hurtful and even damaging to that persons character and credibility.(I haven't told her where I will be working,as I don't want her to speak with my new employer) I do love and care for her,but any showing of affection is rejected as, ironically,she doesn't believe me.It's an upsetting situation not purely for how her lies affect me,but also for how they are affecting her and her relationships with other people.
I love my sister,and it makes me sad that I can't tell her anything about myself for fear of what will come of it. And of course she is very indignant when she realizes that she has not been privy to some piece of "news",and that's when she really lets loose.I have always been able to overcome any of her maliciousness,but it sure isn't fun dealing with it! So thank-you for your comments and as I said I'd really like to hear from someone that is in or has been in the same situation.
