Boy, am I an Angry Bird. Really, truly angry. Beyond a little miffed, inconvenienced and ticked. I'm FURIOUS. All because of a: LIE of OMISSION.
I heard the lame excuses:
#1: I wanted to protect you.
#2: I didn't want you to worry.
#3: You would just freak out.
None of these reasons hold any validity in my eyes. Cause, guess what?
#1: He/she did NOT protect me from shit!
#2: I'm more worried than I ever would've been before, because now I don't trust you, at all, and I'm wondering what the hell else he/she has been keeping from me!
#3: Not only am I FREAKING OUT, but I kinda want to spit on you now too.
Bottom line, to me, a lie is a lie! End of story. When the truth came out (and the truth ALWAYS comes out) things wound up going from zero to sixty, faster than a Ferrari! Unfortunately, I was so shocked and bereft when it did, I wound up standing against this particular person, instead of having their back...
I'm trying not to be angry. Cause I'm like The Hulk and you wouldn't like me when I'm angry. Anger is an emotion I'd like to be able to turn off with a switch. But once provoked, this ANGRY BIRD has never been good at suppressing her ire.And NO good could possibly come from harboring it. So what do I do?
How do you feel about LIES OF OMISSION? Do you even consider them a lie? Have you ever had half-truths, a white lie, full on bullshit or a LIE OF OMISSION told to you?
