How do you deal with people who lie to you?
I have family members who think it is OK to lie to me. They lie about insignificant issues, and they lie about major issues. They have lied about so many things, I think they don't know what the truth is any more. When I try to talk to them about it, they say it is my problem. At this point, it is my problem. I am basing my life on foundations that are turning out to be lies. This involves 2 children (20 and 22) and their father. Any suggestions?

sounds like they have no character at all.
How sad that your own children are engaged in this behavior. Obviously you cannot trust them. Be open about that and tell them that because of their lies you cannot trust them. Then modify your behavior and expectations accordingly.
