I'm not gonna lie.
The unexpected will cut you deep
b/c you never thought it would be THAT person.
So every time the story doesn't add up
or they do something malicious
or you hear what they've been saying about you through the grapevine
Because THAT person couldn't possibly do it to you.
It's not in their character
They have your best interests at heart...right?
You're in denial.
The story doesn't add up b/c they lie
and their malicious actions are intended to hurt you
and what you hear through the grapevine is truly how they feel about you
so don't lie
and certainly don't make excuses.
