After these great basic lies that are publically spread on a daily basis, it is understandable why one must continue lying about all failures and defeats that are hard to cover up, Rizaov concludes.
For example, a mother will want to maintain a sense of herself as "a good mother" (however dysfunctionalized or violent she is) and if one or more of her children decide to challenge her dysfunctional/violent behaviors or even to discontinue their relationship with her, then, rather than acknowledge her dysfunctional/violent behaviors and accept responsibility for dealing with these (which would require her to have the courage to feel the suppressed fear, pain, anger, sadness and other feelings that drive her dysfunctionalities and violence), she is most likely to reinforce her own delusions about herself by lying about herself and her child, including about the reasons her child no longer wants to have a relationship with her.
