Once upon a time, in my previous state of naivety, I thought that people mostly told the truth and only lied when there was something/someone really important to protect. But now, I’ve matured, had a healthy dose of cynicism, gotten a little jaded…and I’ve come to the conclusion that people lie all the time, and will only tell you the truth through force of violence or coercion. And the thing is, they don’t even lie about important things. They lie twenty different ways to twenty different people about what they did this weekend just so they will be seen a certain way by that individual. Why can’t everyone just decide who they want to be, and be it? If you don’t feel like you can be honest about what you do or who you see, why would you want to be that? You shouldn’t have to feel guilty about who you are if it is really who you want to be. My thought is this: if you feel like you have to lie about who you are or what you do, you need to make some changes. Have some integrity. Be it or not, all in or all out.
I just woke up from a very deep sleep in which I was dreaming about stealing a very expensive, fast, green car. The pedals were too far away and the steering wheel was too high and too close, smashing into my sternum, and there was a vicious pit bull in the back seat, barking, but all I could hear was "Skinny Love".
