Small Stones 8/23/16

All it took was one lie, repeated over and over, to cast a dark shadow over an otherwise bright day. Even when confronted with proof, the lies continued. I should be used to the chronic exaggerations and avoidance of the truth, but I keep thinking, hoping, things will change. It hurts. And to be confronted with anger, when all I want is the truth, hurts more. My chest aches with disappointment. People wonder why I have issues with trust, and maybe, just maybe, it is because the people closest to me keep lying to my face.

*Every day, throughout the month of August, I will be participating in a fun writing experiment, known as Small Stones, for #AwakeAugust. To learn more, or for more examples of Small Stones, you can click here.
