If you are someone I care about, I will never tell you what you want to hear just to be “nice”.
I will not tip toe around the truth, and I will refuse to walk on eggshells around you. If you are too sensitive to handle this then I doubt we will ever be more then an on the surface type friendship or an acquaintance.
I will say this though: I do promise you that I will never speak the truth out of hate, judgment or spite, but will always speak it out of love.
I REFUSE to have people that I hold close who will only tell you what they think they should, they will always speak poorly behind your back, but never to your face.
I REFUSE to have these on the surface people who say they are your true friend, but are never there to listen in the situations that truly matter.
Because everyday I want to be vulnerable, I want to grow as a person and I want to build and develop those friendships that aren’t based around insecurity. I will continue to develop into my best possible self, but I cannot do that without walking on solid ground.
I want to listen to the people who will be genuinely honest, who will speak out of love and tell me when I am in the wrong, or being silly or over reacting.
Be true, genuine and real,
because why would you want to be a made up version of yourself?
