Pathological lying is a mental health issue

Pathological lying is a mental health issue and it can take over any rational judgement. This type of lying can produce an almost fantasy world where there seems to be an addiction to telling lies. For the outsider, it may be confusing, as there seems to be no gain in the lies being told. For example, this person may lie about how much money they paid for something in a shop or for a meal in a restaurant. This type of behaviour is usually due to a lack of trust in the world the person is living in and they will find relationships very difficult to maintain. They may also believe that they are being lied to constantly and lack trust in others.
