“Honesty, is such a lonely word, everyone is so untrue. Honesty, is hardly ever heard, mostly what I need from you. I can find a lover, I can find a friend, I can find security until the bitter end. Anyone can comfort me with promises again. I know, I know!”
Billy Joel has some great song lyrics I’ve ever heard but this one in particular nails it, the bitter truth about the world today.
“I can always find someone to say they sympathize, if I wear my heart out on my sleeve. But I don’t want some pretty face to tell me pretty lies, all I want is someone to believe.”
I wrote a post a couple of days ago about is loneliness easier to deal with than getting hurt. Well, loneliness is never an option and it should never be an option. Being alone can be an option because being alone is different from being lonely. I would rather be alone than with a bad companion.
When you write in anonymity in your blogs you can say everything you want to say and hide behind an identity, but does that liberate you at all knowing the person you are directing whatever you post catches it? When you are too honest with your post, there are evil people out there who will use all the truth they read about you.
White lies or filtering whatever you publish in your blog is sometimes the safest way so you don’t have to wash your laundry in public. But if it’s not your own mess you let out in the open and you were the one directly messed with all of that mess, then you can blog about it and be honest and let the world know what kind of scum that person is to give them a wake up call.
But … a person who hides nothing is not afraid to come out in the open and never say things you can never back-up.
