    I can handle the truth. I may not like it, but I can handle it. I can't handle a lie. I can't handle the mistrust afterwards. no trust no relationship.

    IT IS WHAT IT IS, when it comes to the truth, as well as when it comes to our opinion! It is imperative that they are not different from each other!
