Sometimes we make excuses for people when they don’t deserve them. We want to believe there is good in all people. But for some, they lack the goodness we see in them. We see what we want to see, and believe what we want to believe. We create a person in our minds that never really existed. That fantasy can only last for so long as the truth is something that will always be waiting for you when you choose to see it. As they say, ‘the truth shall set you free’ but freedom may not be what you expected it to be. Embrace it. Life is too short to be spent lying to anyone. Especially yourself.
