    With a few notable exceptions I can think of, 9 times out of 10 I would call them out on it right away.

    And the other thing of course is Karma...I am a strong believer that you get what you give. It's a spiritual Law.

    Like a boomerang... it all comes back to you.

    Call them out on it. How confrontational I would be would depend on the 'lie' and would depend on the circumstances. I definitely wouldn't let it slide.

    That's not my nature.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Re: If someone tells a lie about you

    I wouldn't even bother calling them out on it. I knew a pathological liar when I was a kid who I used to always call out, and it made no difference. Nothing changed, so why waste your time and energy? I would simply have nothing to do with that person ever again if it was a serious enough lie. When you cut someone out of your life, then they can't lie about you or to you anymore.

    Re: If someone tells a lie about you

    It depends on who they told the lie to moreso than what the lie is. I really don't get that bent out of shape usually. Life is too short to let people suck me up into their own personal drama.

    Depends on the lie. But if its about politics or about my personal position on an issue i would correct them. But if they keep on believing the lie then there is really no hope for them.
