People arent 100 percent one thing or 100 percent another. We have depth. We're not cartoon characters stuck with one trope. Someone may have made a mistake in their life but ignoring them because of it could be detrimental for all you know
I completely agree... it depends on what was said and what the subject matter was!
How bad of a lie must it be? It could also depend on the frequency of lying.
Also remember that simply being wrong about something is not a lie nor is it something to be ashamed about. But when we try desperately to avoid being seen as wrong, thats when the lies fly out.
Almost everyone lies sometimes... it is when you lie too often (a lot), is when people don't believe you.
The truth is impossible to know
It truly depends on circumstances. Telling someone you like their haircut or dress is far different from lying about rape or abuse
There are varying degrees of lies, I think. When someone has a tendency to fib about even inconsequential things though, I am less inclined to believe what they say..in general.
