Story # 84 I Think We All HaveAt some time in each of our lives, someone has lied to us and hurt us with those lies. Why can't we all just be honest about things. Is it necessary to hide behind lies? Can people not face the consequences of telling the bald truth? So, you aren't as pure as the new fallen snow. Who is? I would much rather know what to expect from you, than have you put on a false front until you have me believing in your wonderful self, only to discover later that you are not at all what you seemed. I just read a story by a young man who has said he needs friends, but that he needs people who can tolerate his drama. And to not add him to their circle if they think they can't handle what is going on in his life. I commend him on his honesty. I can't add him to my circle, because with all the drama that is happening in my life at this time, I knew I could not handle any more. We came to an honest understanding. Wouldn't it be a better world if we could all be as up front as this young man? He may not get as many people joining him in his circle as he would have if he lied and sneaked around and pretended to be something else, but those he does get, will never have reason to call him a liar.
Let's all try to be a little more honest in our dealing with other people's feelings. Yup, even those of us here on EP actually have feelings which can be hurt by deception.
