“He’s lied about this and this and that, but he would never lie about this other…”
I think most people feel there are lines around another person’s lies. Others think, a liar is a liar. This is another Mercury opposite Neptune question and I don’t think this is that easy a thing to define.
The person who believes the liar will not lie in certain circumstances may be lying to themselves. The person who says, once a liar, always a liar is probably lying to themselves as well, most likely by pretending that they, themselves have never told a lie.
It is definitely possible a liar exploit a person’s tendency to believe there are lines around their lies and it may be inordinately hard to discern if this is happening or if the lines are real.
I also wonder if a liar and his or her lies might get progressively worse over time. Isn’t this how most things work? If so, then while there may be a line, that line can move.
It can move in the other direction if a person wants it to. A person can become fed up with their own lies and the trouble it takes to maintain them and turn 180 degrees to head in the other direction.
This is another Mercury opposite Neptune question.
