“A half-truth is a whole lie”

I can’t figure out what I am feeling, that’s odd for me I’m usually pretty clear on how I feel about this or that.  Tonight someone lied to me, I know they don’t feel like they lied, but they did.  It’s an ongoing issue that centers around a never ending circus and I just don’t know how I feel about it. 

I’ve always felt if something is important enough to lie about it should be important enough to fight about.  Why lie?

Tonight brought up a lot of old anger for me, I’ve bended as far as I think I can bend.  I think at some time you just have to admit that beating a dead horse gets you nowhere. 

Tonight I’m reminded that I can’t change anyone else, I don’t even want to change anyone else.  I can’t make anyone have the same hopes, dreams, ideas or beliefs that I have.  I just have to decide how much I can “live with”. 

I’m hurt, angry, confused, frustrated, and just plain tired.  Tired of people treating me like crap and getting away with it.  Tired of turning the other cheek and tired of feeling like I’m being taken advantage of. 

I think one conclusion I came to today is once a liar always a liar, the easiness of the lie is what bothered me.  I just wonder how many other “lies” are being told.  Just amazing!

    Wow, “A half-truth is a whole lie.” Really stuck out to me. I definitely agree with that statement..and am maybe a little convicted about it.

    I’m so sorry for the hurt that this person is causing you. Your hurt and anger is definitely valid. Respectfully, though, I’d like to disagree with you about the “once a liar is always a liar.” In this person’s case that may be true but I don’t think that is always, 100% true.

    Don’t forget to give grace. But also don’t forget to protect yourself.
