Have you ever been told a lie that just doesn't make sense? Or you can't believe what someone just said? It happens to everyone, so what's the most outrageous one you've been told?

My late older sis told me I was adopted and showed paperwork to prove it. Being a teen, I didn't know it was handily forged fakery courtesy some forms her friend got somehow. I was devastated for weeks. Decades later, some still think I was adopted. I wasn't. DNA, I'm 100% same parents as she had. I even heard "But she's not your real sister/dad" at funerals. FYI, if I *had* been adopted, that's still a sh*tty thing to do, but since I wasn't?

As a child, my parents kept telling me that I was worthless, stupid, lazy; that I didn't deserve anything and nothing good would become of me. That they were ashamed with me, and that they had spent too much for my upbringing.

Years later - I moved away from my toxic family and started going to therapy. Today I live in my own an apartment, I got promoted several times at work, I love my job, I got to travel through the whole Europe, and I can afford almost everything they had told me that I "didn't deserve". And most important - I found my inner peace.

" You're fat enough to look like you gave birth to 3 children"
I was 12 when my dad said this. Height 148cm and 50kg. I saved myself when he said that and got very bad stomach issues which I'm still suffering with. He said this because I was VERY skinny as a kid and gained weight at 12. I GAINED WEIGHT FOR MY GROWTH SPURT DURING PUBERTY. My father was ignorant and didn't know this so he ended up hurting my feelings so bad that even though I'm 17 now I still remember EACH AND EVERY hurtful word he has said to me. To this day, I'm uncomfortable to shop for clothes because I get reminded of those days. I'm now 164cm tall at 55.7 kg and although I'm happy with my body I still cry when I remember his words. Be careful everyone!! Words really do matter! Here are some things he said
(I was eating a chocolate because of period cramps when he said look at you you're eating all the time. Girls you're age are gorgeous at 5'5 and maintaining a healthy weight. You look like a troll)
(I was sleeping when he told me my belly is so big it looks like it's laying beside me)
And when I confronted him about this and told him this was why I starved myself he told me he never said that and got mad and told me to stop making up lies about him..he told me this was why everyone hates me. Ever since then, my relationship with my father has never been the same. The most outrageous lie was when he told me to stop making this up (my mom didn't know about this till then and she was there at the time so he didn't want to make himself look bad. Sorry for the essay folks just needed to get that out

If you work hard, you can be or do anything. It's really not true. That isn't something I'm saying because I think anything is owed to me. I think it's just a dangerous thing to say to kids who don't understand that there's a fine print.

There are a specific set of circumstances that have to happen in order for that dream to come true and it's possible that no matter how hard you work you might not get there. There's also a narrative on instagram, facebook et al of people who live these 'amazing' lives that you will never be able to keep up with or live up to or afford. It's causing people to build a resentment because they see some influencer or celebrity with little to no talent and they then question, 'why can't I be that? Why can't I be like them?' But a lot of it is a lie.

With some things, it's about who you know. With others it's about having the capital to be able to do it, so for instance, you may be able to take an unpaid internship for a year at your dream company, but only if you can afford to do that. You need to have someone who can take care of you for that year or someone's couch you can sleep on. Some people don't have that option. Some people have to work from the minute they turn 16 and can't afford to take time off even with some savings.

A lot of rich people have their companies handed to them because it's in the family. So they get the benefit of great schooling and they start training for that business as soon as possible. They also have their rent paid for have a trust fund while they do that. They also get there without ever having to start at the bottom, or only have to do that for a very short time to 'save face'. At 26 they take over a million dollar company. No matter how hard that person works, they still had astounding advantages that you and I will never have and if they had to work 1 week in one of our jobs they'd kill themselves. But they are often the first ones to blame poor people for their own lot in life. They forget about everything they got to skip over on their way to where they are.

You're constantly made to feel like you're somehow lesser because you didn't have the same opportunities.

Don't get me wrong, some people really do start from nothing and work hard to build an incredible life but I would bet that no one gets there alone, and not without help of some kind and some luck that simply might not be available to you. Or the dream you have is simply not within reach for you because of other circumstances in your life.

omg this is a big one. If i could do it over again, i would have told myself to get my GED, go to community college for 1 year and get great grades, then apply for scholarships. And graduate by the time I'm 19. Or if I don't want to go to college for something specific, apprentice for a trade for those 4 years I'm still living at home and once I hot 18 you get can licensed in the trade and start working for someone making good money right away or even start my own business within a few years. If you know for sure that school is not for you or that you know you want to work in a specific field that does not require college... get your GED as soon as possible. I would say to finish middle school, 8th grade. But 15 or 16years old... get out. It's a waste of time. You aren't going to remember anything you learn in those last 3 years so you might as well use them to learn your chosen trade.

I’m not cheating on you and never would. Said by my now ex husband. Backstory: we were married for 9 years, together for 11 and had 2 daughters together. We had a somewhat open relationship to avoid cheating as he had a reputation from his past. There were many rules but the main one was, you don’t do anything behind the others back. Not only did he cheat behind my back but he brought her into my home to help me with the kids after a surgery I had as my ex was an over the road trucker and couldn’t be there with me. She stole my phone while I was sleeping and text herself from it making it look like I was selling her my pain meds from the surgery. In the end, I didn’t get in any trouble as I still had the pills I was supposedly selling but she sure tried multiple things to have me put in prison so she could take over my roll (her words). Karma got her in the end as she was charged with perjury and soliciting an officer.

My boyfriends Mom said she had cancer. She lost a bunch of weight (she was morbidly obese & found a Dr. Feel good to give her hella powerful drugs) Had her husband and son at her beck & call 24/7 because she “needed help”and was SO weak & sick. Gaslit the whole town, had everyone giving her attention, flowers, home cooked meals, etc. Boyfriend & I could never go out(“what if she fell?!) but she loved having us both there to listen to her monologues. This went on for 2 years! We were dumb teenagers, but shouldn’t the adults have noticed something wasn’t right? They finally did, it all came out (suprise! No cancer!) and my boyfriend had to leave town because of the shame. (I went with him- happily married for 40 years) We tried to forgive her when our kids came along. She started the same old c**p, and we finally completely cut her off.
SO, big big biiiiig lies.

Immediately said " I didn't take it"
Which I hadn't even considered.
But when my new bill came from when she moved in, it turned out, that while I was a work, and she was Supposed to be at work, she was sitting on her A**
Calling family in New Jersey. All day.
She went away for a weekend and never came back, so I ended up getting a second job to pay that bill. Never saw her again. Burned her personal belongings. Gave her dog away.

Recently got myself into a situation where I was giving someone a chance despite my inner voice telling me it wasn't going to go well. I don't really make friends easily-mostly because I stay away from people in general. So, when I do interact with people, I give everyone a chance. I don't like being judged so this is my way of avoiding being judgmental myself. That being said, I'm sure you've already figured out how problematic that can be. Anyhoo, all was going well, thought we finally had a friend that we could trust and one that was a good person. Until he found a gf that was a drunk and encouraged him to stay off the wagon himself. He disappeared for several days and kinda left us high and dry-which bothered me but I was willing to let it go. That is until he came back very upset with some story about "bad people" and "having to do what he had to do" yet never saying anything in detail except for he had to break someone's ribs. Come to find out a few days later when his gf and her friend showed up to tell him off and to yell at us for letting him use our phones to call/text her, that the person whose ribs he broke was hers. He had kept her drugged and drunk for several days while keeping her pretty much hostage because he thought he could buy time to get her ribs healed before anyone figured out what really happened. Lucky for her she's got friends/family that wouldn't stop trying to get ahold of her or who knows what worse things could've happened. It's not only his lying to us about the situation with his gf that pissed me off or the ghosting all while this was going on but the fact that he would always tell my husband how much he's learned from him about how to treat women that makes me sick! Not to mention those few days between what he was telling us and finding out the truth about what happened, he was totally sh*tfaced the whole time and kept slipping in truths about things he'd been lying to us about the whole year we knew him!

This was maybe 10 years ago. My husband’s sister asked if we could take care of her daughter, our nice, over the weekend when she had to attend a job conference. Later, on the evening she put a picture on FB, saying how much she enjoyed being home by herself, taking a bath and a glass of wine, painting her toenails, just relaxing. She was so new to Facebook, she didn’t realize everything she posted could be seen, not just by the people she wanted , but also by us 😂😂. If she’d ask us to watch her girl for her to get time for her self, we would of course have said yes. But now she lied, and when we confronted her she got really aggressive and said it was her entitlement to have alone time, not understanding that the issue was her manipulative ways that was the problem. A year later she asked my husband to be a witness of her character in a trial, but he denied, saying he could not rightfully testify she was a liable person. 🤣

You know how everyone is always saying ‘you should share your opinion’ while also stating that ‘you don’t need to share your opinion’
Usually when I’m expressing myself I get told that it’s ‘wrong’ because a majority believes otherwise and it just gives a crappy feeling when you feel invalidated

I once shared to some friends that I wasn’t a fan of Taylor Swift (they were) and one of them literally sent me a plethora of messages telling me that no one cares that I dislike her, I don’t need to say it

I was sorta dating a guy for months and he'd keep telling me how his ex was an utter nutjob and that she was so jalous and wouldn't believe that he had broken up with her. One day she called me, screaming at me to leave her bf alone and that he wasn't interested in me and I simply had to understand that she was his gf -not me. I couldn't get a word into the conversation at all so I hung up on her. And then I texted the guy telling him to fork off. He did for a few months then texted me begging for a 2nd chance. I gave him that and then the gf started texting me angry texts. Eventually she understood that I had no blame in all that drama. I blocked the guy everywhere. Then a while later he was at a bar with some friends and I was there with a friend. At some point one of the guy's friends came over and said that the guy wanted to dance with me. I laughed that friend right in the face and said no. "Tell him he had his 2nd chance. There is NO 3rd chance here!"

This started happening about 15 years ago. In the midst of one of her usual hours long harangues about how I needed to smile and just get over being unhappy, since I was mired in a deep depression, my mother told me the theft of my diaries was "nothing" and that "I was making a big tragedy out of it."

All the while she was bitching at me to shape up and simply be the pleasant and happy daughter she wished for, she had been taking cell phone pictures of the pages of my handwritten journals and was texting them around to whoever she knew. When I moved out, that changed her little game, but by then other people had found it so entertaining how bothered I was when my writing got stolen that they kept it up on my mother's behalf. The stealing of my writing has become such a commonplace practice in my town that to this day, I have coworkers rummaging through my things to get at my notebooks and take pictures of the pages to pass around. I've taken extreme measures to protect my property, even buying a safe, and stopping writing entirely for a stretch. Still, whenever I am writing, I eventually slip up, drop my guard, and some of my diary pages invariably get stolen.

Having no privacy has destroyed any possibility I might have had at a social life. It's funny how your motivation to share yourself with others and form close, intimate bonds dries up when people just take it from you by force. Oh, and the celebrity I was writing about got wind of what I had written and hasn't stopped trolling me since. The only real peace I get anymore is when I'm unconscious, or, when I'm dead asleep and not dreaming.

Anyone reading this that knows me, feel free to admit it.
LOL! I know you won't, you repugnant sicko!

Having your privacy invaded is indeed a horrible thing and I am sorry that you are still unable to have any peace. If you moved away from that town do you think you’d get a break from that sort of behavior?

When I was in school, from first grade all the way until I graduated high school, I was bullied. I was constantly told, "If you ignore them, they'll leave you alone." I once ignored them for three whole months. Big surprise. They didn't leave me alone.

Many many people at my school have called me a psychopath/sociopath because I tend to keep my feelings to myself and (I will admit it) I have a very short temper and probably anger issues. I have also been told multiple times that I was ‘on dr*gs’ despite me literally BEGGING them to stop saying it because it made me uncomfortable. The dr*g comments have since stopped, but the psychopath/sociopath ones crop up every now and then.
I haven’t been tested or anything like that so I can’t say for sure if i have anger issues but it is possible. On that note, I also haven’t been tested for psychopathic or sociopathic tendencies. But I have no reason to since that is not something I am worried about. It’s not as though I have no moral compass? (I know that’s not all what it’s about but it is a very big part and that is the basic definition that the people at my school take) sorry for the slight rant but yknow, it’s a lie and it’s VERY annoying.
If someone is hyper and they’re excited for any reason, it doesn’t mean they’re on dr*gs. If someone doesn’t want you knowing every detail about their life (separate from what part of their life you’re included in), it doesn’t make them a psychopath or otherwise.

I had a flatmate who constantly faked having epilepsy to get attention. She would just drop anywhere and start 'fitting' if she was either not the centre of attention or getting her way. If this happened at home i would just step over her and ignore it.....would freak out visitors etc but I would just fill them in and she would suddenly recover......I ended the lease early and got the hell away from her....

"I'm here for you." From my bio dad when he was trying to reconnect after 26yr absence. I asked him not to say that, he ignored me and kept right on saying it. I told him off and haven't spoken to him in 7yrs. Wonder if he gets it now.

I found greasy handprints above my ex's headboard. He kept a bottle of Baby lotion in his bedside cabinet for when we were doing the biz. The handprints weren't mine.
He said that his 4 y/o niece had done it. The prints were definitely not child sized, and considering they were above the headboard I'm quite glad.

Former co-worker (at the mall) who was short, red-headed, and freckled, told me she was a Native American Princess. Amongst many other obvious untruths. That one was a doozy though.

I knew a dude who used the same bus stop as me. We would sometimes chat after school while waiting for our buses. This dude told me he was a trillionaire because he started some tech company. Not his parents. Him. All by himself. This 15 year old kid tried to convince me that he was one of the richest people in the world.

I kinda nodded along, not wanting to call him out. He obviously had some reason for such a bold lie. I did some googling though and no, he was not a 15 year old trillionaire.

It was shocking to say the least.

Someone told me that they were stabbed in the forehead while saving a baby from muggers. He had no scar, and there was nothing in the news about it on the date he gave me.
