What good has being honest and telling the truth gotten you? It seems like lies and dishonesty makes people happier than knowing the truth.
I’d be lying if I said looks aren’t important. In fact, I’m probably one of the most superficial people you’ll meet, but because of it, my self-esteem is really low. In all honesty, when it comes to meeting people, the very first thing I look at is their looks. Once I tell myself to give it a chance, then I get to know them. And this is where I can say I am able to fall in love. After okaying the outer appearance, I try and know their personality and fall in love with their story and what drives them and inspires them. Looks are what draw me in, but their personality and their drive is what makes me stay.
That thing called trust. Its a reflection of how much faith you have in a person. If I go to a party and say I’m going to be fine, I’m not going to get too wasted and cheat on you, then I mean exactly that and I fully intend on keeping my word. Even if I did exactly what I said I would do and stayed mostly sober and remained faithful to my partner, it’s up to you to believe in my words or not. The amount of blind faith you can give a single person shouldn’t be a lot, but if you love them enough and truly do believe them, then having faith in what they are telling you should be enough for you to be accepting. Because I feel like even I were to stay clean during a party, and you had little to no faith or trust in me, you would still believe whatever you wanted to believe, regardless of the solid facts and evidence. No faith or trust in a relationship is completely unhealthy, but can you even call it a relationship if there isn’t at least some trust in it?
