“i was gonna thank you for nothing but i forgot your name”
I’m mad. Which isn’t my bent. At someone i basically don’t know. Which is more strange (or maybe less). It took a while – i resisted fairly strongly – but i’m mad at my girlfriend’s ex. (I’m way oversimplifying – the details are hardly even my business.) I resisted it because, basically, the past is the past, and i’m not inclined to butt into what’s not really my business. But the past isn’t ever really the past, because we are the product of our experiences (thanks, Belle). I don’t think i’m mad at her for being mean; i am mad at her for being irresponsible.
Because you don’t fucking tell lies to people who are in the vulnerable position of believing you. It’s one of the responsibilities that comes with a relationship. That’s what i want to yell.
What i really mean is a little different. Because, while some of the lies were lies, the ones that hurt the most are the ones that are different truths. Some things are a matter of fact, but lots of things (the most vulnerable things) are a matter of perspective. You have to be careful what you do with your truths; they are not everyone’s truths. And the lie is not speaking your truth; the lie is making it up to look like everyone’s truth. The former may be mean, but the latter is irresponsible. But, also,
You don’t fucking tell lies to people who are in the vulnerable position of believing you! It’s one of the responsibilities that comes with a relationship!
