A few days ago I posted the following quote, “It’s always better to be slapped with the truth than kissed with a lie,” and the thought is still lingering.
When I was younger, I did a lot of kissing for the sake of not hurting peoples’ feelings. I should have done more slapping. Even worse, I should have been slapping myself. I can say that now because I’ve realized that I must see things how they are instead of how I hoped, wished, or expected them to be.
