You know what irritates me the most in life? Lying. It takes so much energy to lie, I don’t understand why people cannot grasp the freedom and liberation it feels to be honest and genuine. A single lie that is discovered can create enough contagious doubt over every truth that is expressed.
If you have to defend it, it’s bullshit. If you have to explain it, it’s bullshit. If you have to convince yourself that they won’t understand, it’s bullshit.. It’s bullshit. All of it. You know it.
Remember, you can’t have a healthy relationship with a person wearing a mask. Think of it this way – cheaters will always think others cheat, and liars will always think those of others – Let that simmer for a minute. I’d rather be known in this life as an honest sinner, than a liar.
So here are my doctors orders: Respect those you love and don’t stoop yourself to a level of being a hypocrite. The truth hurts for a little, but lies withstand in the future. Apologize if you’re wrong and don’t trust anybody willing to deliberately tweak the truth for their benefit. Don’t expect perfection, but do expect honesty.
Good luck. Xo, T.
