Is being a pathological liar a mental problem?
Yes it is, but if the person wants help it can be cured without medications. A pathological liar is usually learned from either stress while growing up in a disfunctional family; abuse issues; being told that they are stupid and won’t amount to much. Pathalogical liars feel so low and disfunctional that they embellish on almost every subject to make themselves feel important and also impress those around them. If you told a pathalogical liar you would shoot them in the foot if they didn’t tell you the truth they still couldn’t tell the truth. They just can’t help it and they need psychological counseling to help learn the tools to over-come this.
