I try not to sweat the small stuff but...

When I know someone I love is lying to me it's sometimes difficult to confront her because it's even more upsetting to see that that someone is going to deny it in any way she can. And does she really think I'm that naive?!

I have Huge issues with this one! I cannot call a person out on an obvious lie either. I just let the big fat lie lie there, between us. I know well enough she will never admit to the lie and be insulted that I didn't "believe" her--but it irks me because it makes me look stupid and passive. It is a NO WIN situation. when a friend starts down this path, the trust leaves the relationship. I guess i should call people out, just by suggesting that maybe they are confused, or something. When a close pal lies to you, you know they are angry at you for something weird, like the gift you gave them for their birthday did not please them --why else would they? Either be honest or keep quiet is how I feel, don't make up some dumb bullshit story that sounds bizarre.

You're so right, it's definitely a lose-lose situation! I can also not get over the fact that it makes me feel like the stupid, dumb, naive person. And I don't know what's worse for me, when people lie about small stuff all the time (so it's natural for them- hate that!) or lie about big stuff (far more impact but also more understandable). I just really detest lies.
