A painful truth is always better than a hidden lie.
– Dave Willis
The truth sure hurts sometimes, doesn’t it? But you know what? It is the truth.
Here, is a quote by me, and my thoughts…
It can take a long time to build trust. Yet, it can be easily destroyed overnight…
– Sandra Scala
Trusting someone can be hard,
especially when you’ve been hurt,
over and over.
BUT, you know what?There is hope, and there IS trust!It just takes time, and patience.
Once the trust is earned, keep it.Don’t keep secrets. Don’t tell lies.It can be easily destroyed overnight.
Avoid unnecessary drama.Avoid the people who bring you down.This will, in fact, lead to happiness!! ❤️
In any relationship – honesty and communication is so very important!
If you don’t “get along” with someone – then tell them instead of misleading them. If you don’t agree with the way a situation is – then just say it, instead of hiding the fact that you don’t like it.
Why do people hide things? Is it because they don’t want to hurt the person they love? Is it because they feel guilty for doing whatever they are doing? Is it unhappiness? What is the real reason behind it all? And if you don’t say what you feel, then how is the other person going to know?!
t sucks when you need to repeatedly ask just to get an answer. It sucks because you should never have had to get to that point in the first place! Honesty in any situation happens right from the start!
In any relationship, trust is crucial. Without trust, how can there be a meaningful relationship? A reason any two people are in a relationship is because they love each other and want to spend their life with each other. They want to experience new adventures together and share their hopes and dreams with each other.
The thing is, if you are asking questions to help understand a situation, and they are not coming to you in an honest way…when you have that gut feeling that something just isn’t right, then what are you to do and how are you to react? When trust is broken, your first reaction is going to be sadness and anger, all mixed into one big helium balloon about to burst. It’s like you are floating – higher and higher – until you just cannot take anymore and so you burst. The explosion sets you off because you never meant for it to get to that point, but it escalated so much – it hurt you so much – to realize that you were taken advantage of and that it even happened. All because of a situation that could have been avoided.
Avoid these situations and open up to the people you care about – the ones you love, and find the reason behind the situation. “You don’t know what you don’t know”, and it is much more healthy for you to talk about things rather than avoid the conversation. In the heat of the moment – pause, breathe, and remind yourself that you are worthy of love. You deserve to be treated with the same respect and love that you give.
At the end of the day, with honesty, respect, and love – comes a healthy and lasting relationship!
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

So let’s be grateful for the people we do have in our life. Let’s be grateful for life in itself, because truth be told – good things AND bad things happen.
Sometimes “things” out of our control happens and when we are in those moments. We can either choose to keep dwelling on the hurtful times; or, we can choose to create peace and happiness by acknowledging and recognizing the good times.
By allowing ourselves to accept change and react in ways that better our lives, we learn to keep moving forward, and we are more able and willing to accept what life has to offer – one day at a time.❤️
