My best friend has been lying a lot lately and it's really starting to bother me. She's always telling me things that aren't true and it's putting a strain on our friendship. I don't know how to help her or how to get her to stop.

Honestly, helping your friend to be honest with you sounds like a complicated thing. I feel like you are a good person for considering helping her despite her lies to you. You could try to have a conversation with her about why lying is harmful to your friendship, and if she persists in lying then maybe some distance from the friendship is necessary. Lastly, you could try gently confronting her each time she lies to you and see if that changes things over time.
