Give me truth

“I’m going to paraphrase Thoreau here… rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth. ”
― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

I can sit here spouting all these quotes about truth. It hurts. We are never really prepared for the bad, and too giddy at the good. People say to give them the truth, but who is really prepared for it?

I would like to think that I am. Because it takes too much effort to lie. Because I’ve been lied to too often, and by the people who should never lie to you and about the things that matter.

So give me the truth. I might ask for a little honey with mine, but never change things out with a lie. I’m a big girl (Haha, I know) and I can handle it.
