HomeFriends Relationship QuestionsHow to deal with a friend who’s trying to teach me how to lie?
Roy Murray asked 2 months ago

Melanie is my childhood friend. We used to share everything with each other but now she's changed. She's started lying and she's even tried to teach me how to do it. I don't want to lie, but I don't want to upset her either. What should I do?

Wow, I can only imagine having a friend who's trying to teach me how to lie would be really tough. I think the best thing you can do is talk to her about why you don't want to lie. Maybe she's started lying because she doesn't feel like she can trust you with the truth. You need to let her know that she can trust you and that you're still the same friend she's always known. If she doesn't want to listen, then you might have to distance yourself from her. It's not healthy to be around someone who's trying to encourage you to lie.
