    We all have a way of making human connection

    cheap. It's interesting and sad. I hope there are still people out there who can cut through the numbness and really feel with someone else.

    I appreciate how honest I can be on EP.

    It feels like I'm getting to know myself as well as those who pass by and drop a comment. Positive feels :)

    I don't care how badly it hurts me,

    or how damaged I am after it, but I would rather the bitter honest truth over being told sugarcoated lies to spare me...because in the end when I find out the truth it just hurts more.

    But I don't like when people are brutally

    honest. That's the whole point, you are being brutal. If someone says, "Do I look bad in this?" I'm not going to be like, "Yeah, you're a total ugly fatass!" because that's more like bullying. I would say something like, "I like the other shirt better on you" or "I don't think...

    Often you hear the phrase,

    "Sometimes the Truth hurts." When in really the truth always hurts. That's why it's so hard to tell it consistently. Fact is a lie, is a lie, is a lie and a white lie is just as impactful as a regular lie, or a big lie. Whatever you use to gauge what lie is what size is up too...
