How Would My Relationships Change if I Resolved Never to Lie Again, Pt 2

A blast from the past because I forgot to blast yesterday.

A Writer's Life

In re-reading my former post on this topic, I realized I wasn’t actually totally honest in answering the question. I was honest as far as I went, but I stopped short of visualizing how my relationships would change if I never lied again. Instead I talked about what was in my present, how I was affected by trying to live lie-free now, instead of how these efforts could change my life.

That, I’ve realized, is a much harder question. So, now it’s time for the real truth.

How would my relationships change if I resolved never to lie again? No ‘that dress makes you look fab,’ or ‘I’m tired (just because I don’t want to go out).’ Neither would ‘I’ll be back in a hour (when I know it’s gonna be at least three),’I’m fine with that movie,’ or “No, I don’t mind when you constantly correct my grammer’ be…

Yours will call me out of my burrow like music,” said the fox.

Living in Confusion

Blast From the Past…….

A Writer's Life

Like many of you, I subscribe to the many daily writing prompts abundant on WordPress. I’d like to say that I immediately jump on each prompt and write a post but…. I don’t. In fact, most of the time, I don’t. One day, however, there was a prompt entitled ‘The Land of Confusion.’ It read:

Which subject in school did you find impossible to master? Did math give you hives? Did English make you scream? Do tell!

First thoughts – I wouldn’t classify any of my years of school as a ‘Land of Confusion.’ Okay, math. I am mathematically-challenged and my brain doesn’t think in 3-D. Don’t dare show me a flat shape and ask me what it will be when 3-D. I don’t know and, frankly, I no longer care. And then there was Latin. I never mastered the art of translation and tenses. Thus my translation of ‘they…
