We all have secrets. We all have thoughts and pasts that we don’t want to think about. Most of us have tiny secrets that fit in a small box in the corner. Some of us have secrets that are sharp. Razor sharp.
I stumbled across the secret of someone close to me. A close friend, I should say, and I have a thought. If you find something or hear something, stop to think before you ask questions. Will the answer to those questions help you or forward you?
I’m not a fan of the ostrich theory of sticking our head in the sand, but I am also learning that I’m not a fan of being the Nancy Drew. I want the truth, but I don’t always want to understand the truth.
My hair is naturally darker. My eyes aren’t green. My nails aren’t really this long. I’m not this tall without heels. Your hideous outfit is fabulous. That baby is beautiful.
We have white lies. We have truths. We have lies. We have secrets. We have consequences.
Where do we draw the line? How do we decide what is acceptable? Does this lie help people?
The lines are tearing me apart. I want to go back to the days when people were understandable and readable.
