How can you call yourself someone’s best friend and continually shatter his or her heart with lies? I’ll never understand deceit in friendships. I thought the purpose was to bond with another person. The friendship loses its meaning when you can’t trust what comes out of the other person’s mouth. It’s even worse when the person denies it after you confront him or her. There’s no opportunity for reconciliation or forgiveness in that case. The most pain comes when the person denies it and becomes angry with you. All is lost by then.
