Things don't always come out quite as you expect.

The Ones Providing The Loving.

Everyone lies.
I guess it's just part of being human.
I don't really mind when people lie.
If I can't tell then obviously I have no problem with it.
But I lie quite a lot so I know when other people are.
There's certain....twitches....people have.
They're uncomfortable.
Because they're not telling the truth.

I don't press it.
There's a reason they're lying.
If they want to, they'll tell me.
If not, well, why should I force them into admitting something they're trying to hide?
You might think that's uncaring. A good friend would want to know.
Would they?
Or would the good friend wait until they were ready to say?
I don't know.

But anyway.
Like I said, I know when people lie.
Especially my parents.
After all, my twitch had to come from somewhere. I can recognise it in them.

That's why it hurts so much when my mum lies to me.
Most of the time, she's one of my best friends.
I don't care if that sounds gay. It's true.
So when she can't trust me.... all I can think of is why?
What did I do wrong?

And if my mum can't trust me, can anybody?

Can anyone trust anyone, if everyone lies?


  1. Usually lying ends up being a mistake, but as human beings we tend to choose to learn from them. But I agree people lie for a reason. Depends how strong that reason is if it's worth it or not.

  2. Depends what we are lying for I guess. Sometimes I wonder why we lie even if we know that we are hurting the other person/people involved. I guess its part of the nature that makes us human huh.
