Learning Through Lies

Sometimes I wish people could be more truthful rather than weave a web of lies to hide it, because the truth will always come out. Feel hurt, betrayed, and foolish to give them the benefit of the doubt to fall into their web of lies. But that’s life. You live and learned. You learned that there are no such things as coincidence in a web of lie. The truth is always there and will expose itself. You learned to be careful of who you can trust, who you can tell your feelings and problem to. You learned that not everyone in your circle, whether big or small is your friend. Some will use you, some will lie to you, and stab you when you’re not looking.

But through it all, like Shannon L. Alder had said:

Forget what hurt you but never forget what it taught you.

You learned that things are meant to be the way they are, for you to learn and grow. You learned how to distinguish the real. To let go of what you don’t need in your life and be grateful for those few you have. You learned to exclude yourself from people’s narrative because life is too short, and you don’t have time to play the bad person in anyone’s web of lies or drama.

So to those that had hurt, betrayed, and lie to me. Thank you for teaching and let me close another life lesson chapter so that I can focus on living and being happy.
