    Hello to you!

    You ask a very good question that makes me think :)

    In my opinion, there would be several reasons that would make someone lie:

    • He may want to avoid hurting the other person by telling the truth, so it would be out of a feeling of empathy or to preserve a social relationship.
    • He is trying to protect himself, so it would be out of a sense of fear.
    • He is trying to profit from a lie, so it would be out of greed.

    These are just my ideas ! I advise you to do research on an Internet platform to have valid sources and read more reliable articles! :) Just by writing "Why are we lying", you should get several interesting results.

    Do not hesitate if you have other questions, it will always be a pleasure to answer you! :)
