Compulsive lying is again, a mental health

Compulsive lying is again, a mental health issue but when this person tells a lie, there will be no emotion(s) attached, such as guilt or shame. The reason for this is simply because the compulsive liar believes the lie to be true. This type of lying quite often comes about through feelings of inadequacy/ low self-esteem and there can be links with possible alcohol and drug use. There could also have been a possible trauma in the past that may need to be worked through. With compulsive lying, it is important to get a professional diagnosis before seeking any type of help. If therapy is decided upon, it can be long-term but it can help to determine the underlying causes.
