Turn the question around, and ask why do most of us not lie most of the time. That's also a very interesting question.
We value truth and sincerity - your liar doesn't. We recognize the difficulties of lying ( it's hard to remember which lies you told to who ; and when discovered, nobody can trust anything you say - remember the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf ? )
There are diferences. People who lie about themselves usually try to make themselves look better and more interesting than they are, and don't actually feel good about themselves. The person who tells malicious lies about you, may have various reasons for wanting to hurt you.
The person yopu describe may indeed feel jealous of you - and inferior in herself, and not able to compete or compare in a more natural way.
And some liars lie about everything, whether or not they're bound to be found out, and can actually get themselves into situations where they're no longer sure of what's true
As Liza points out many liars don't feel guilty and don't really see it as being wrong.
Notice in the example Liza quotes - when someone just laughs at the tall story, that liar gets quiet - not taking them seriously, NOT getting upset or angry, usually spoils their fun.
And I rather doubt that you're the only person she lies about - so there may be a growing band of people who know what she is and treat her lies with the contempt they deserve
