The First Crack Is The Last








I lied when I told you I forgot. I know it doesn't seem like a big thing but I wanted to tell you the truth and never, ever lie to you.

Because that's how it starts.

everybody lies, especially to the people they love.

Sade said...

the worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves.

i wish i could find someoen who never ever wanted to lie to me. but that's all they seem to do.

It starts with one. And then another. And then the person you're with doesn't know you and it's not even their fault.

And as soon as that one crack begins, it's always there. No matter how hard to try to patch it up or cover over it.

I wish I could have stopped that crack before it was too late.

This is so true.

I have watched with my own eyes, over the course of a relationship, how lies snowball.

This one reminds me of that relationship so much- thank you for that.

We often would have chosen to lie if we were in the same position as those whom lied to us. We break as much as we're broken. It's human.

We lie because we want to protect the ones we love.

But thats how it starts.
Thats how it always starts.

Sometimes I lie because the truth is too Big and I can't bear the weight of it.

Sometimes the truth can't be contained by words.

Some things break, But my Love is not the shell, it's the core, and theres nothing you can say can change that.

yes, try to prevent the first microfracture from ever forming in the foundation of your relationship... and the best way to not sweep anything under the rug is to not have a rug at all!

every once in a while you post one of these that are almost too much my life. this is one of them. It hardly helps me understand, it scares me actually how true it is. how true it is that i sit here and lie to persons, specifically a one person. knowing that the road i'm inches from has been painted vividly so many times before. and leads nowhere good...

I wish I could tell you this. But I can't. Not ever. I owe it to myself. Please understand.

agree

Magic said...

That's how it starts.
And it's even harder when you got all this truth inside you, and yet are told 'Lie to me', like they mean it.

Jen said...

snowball doesnt even begin to describe it. they ruin love stories, plans, trust and even lives. It's definitely better to tell the truth when you first have a chance; because anything after that will just make it worse.

I'm in a really tight spot right now because of a lie, dozens actually. and as much as I love the person.. I dont think I could ever move on with him, or do anything the same. I think he ruined both our opportunities of a great life together.
