A liar is never a good person to keep around. You constantly question everything that they say and do. After all, they’ve lied before…so many times that you can’t even tell their truths from their lies anymore, because they all bleed together. They lie about everything, even insignificant things that they think might upset you.
I prefer to hear the truth, even if it rips me apart. Lies are harder to process, harder to recover from. At least when you have the truth, you know. With a lie, you’re left questioning everything the person says in the future. Lies come from a selfish nature, intended to protect only the liar from the repercussions of their actions.
It’s hard to trust someone who has lied to you so many times and continues to make selfish choices that bring them straight back to bold face lies in a weak attempt to save face. Lies always unravel, and the truth always comes out–so don’t lie. Own your mistakes and take accountability for them. Better yet–learn from them. Don’t lie about the same things over and over again, hell don’t make the same mistakes over and over again and then you won’t feel the need to lie.
Self destruction is also something that I hate witnessing. I may not have my entire life figured out, but I know better than to sabotage myself in any way. Life will do that on its own, it really doesn’t need help. If you seek out the darkness in life, that’s all you’ll see. Darkness.
Actions speak louder than words, and you can’t expect someone to believe you’ve changed for the better when you keep lying and keep sabotaging any hope of redeeming yourself.
