…don’t lie to me. It’s unnecessary. Simply give me your truth as I give you mine- and allow me the opportunity to make the choice to stay and see how it goes, or walk away. But don’t lie to me, because in so doing, you are making my choice for me. You know that me staying is a complete waste of my good times, but you don’t want me to go, so you lie to me. It’s unnecessary. I may walk away. For good. Or, dealing with you may be the perfect situation for me right now. Just tell me the truth and see. I may surprise you. But, lying to me automatically seals the deal for me to make my exit.
