Not everyone can handle the truth. The truth is a a bit of a double edged sword when it comes to relationships. You want the truth but sometimes it can really hurt someone else. When one person feels differently than you do, that’s when things get messy. This week got pretty messy for your favorite truth telling lad.
I have a friend, lets call her Rachel, that’s been a little more than that lately. We have been hanging out and feelings have been mushing together like someone hitting puree on the blender. Her and I want different things and it’s just getting messy. I decided to end things because it’s not what I want. She disagreed. We’ll see how this works out.
A rumor, by definition, is a statement or report without known authority for its truth. This week I confronted someone who I have heard a lot of things about. These things I heard were highly negative. I figured why not seek the truth instead of going off of what I thought I knew. He was actually happy that I was honest and was happy to clear up all my misconceptions. It made me wonder what life would be like if we just stopped rumors dead in their tracks when we heard them instead of passing them on.
Disprove what you disbelieve. If you don’t think something is true, seek the truth. Stick to your guns and remember that you know yourself better than anyone else.
This has been another week of Me, being honest.
