Facing the Truth
It is still hard today as it was yesterday and many lifetimes before now to sometimes face the truth.
I’ve had to face challenges at times in which I had a choice to know the truth or not know. Sometimes, the truth showed up on its own and I was forced to deal with it.
But what I’ve learned in the last 14 years and more so in the last 18 months is that the truth would have been far better than one lie which ultimately led to a series of lies, heartbreak, destruction, hurt & pain, misery and loss.
However, at the risk of losing absolutely everything, some people still have a hard time telling the truth and avoid it by telling themselves, it’s best not to “hurt” that person because what she/he doesn’t know won’t hurt them.
No need to list a barrage of reasons people have lied to me, on me and even for me.
In the end, nothing good ever became of it, no matter how intricate the lie became.
Lies are easy to make up, yet harder to keep up.
A lie, even a small one, for whatever the reason, destroys all things.
Most of all, a lie destroys trust. It destroys a person’s word. Sometimes it destroys entire families and friendships.
Nothing compares to the truth and knowing the person telling me the truth is a person who is aware that they are human and flawed.
And I, being human and flawed, am capable of true forgiveness.
Be handled with care and love,
