Be True


Last week I went out with someone and had a nice time. When he picked me up this weekend his car stunk of smoke. He lied about smoking to get a date with me. Perhaps he lied hoping I could see past the smoking, but all it took was his initiation of holding my hand for me to realize I don't want anything to do with a him.

There is no need to lie about what you do and who you are. Don't worry about others judging you because chances are, they already have. And if you care that much of what others think, think of it this way: People may believe the fake front for a while, but will be even more judgmental when they discover the lies.

We all have flaws and aren't made to be with with every single person, so be true to yourself. Even pets dislike other pets for no reason. So I can't stand a chain smoker. I'm sure lots can't stand a hot tempered chick who while clipping her finger nails walked out of the bathroom and forgot to clip the last finger (happened last night).

Your imperfections make you unique, your mistakes make your identity. And if someone genuinely likes you, they will like you regardless. I think you're perfect the way you are. As flaky as you can be, as much as you cancel plans, as annoyed as I am with you at times- I don't care and I still like you.

  1. Good for you for standing by what you believe in!! I hate smoking and the smell of smoke is disgusting!! It was a strong thing for you to do and to be honest, most girls would have ignored it, which I find really sad...but it will be a good inspiration to them to stand up for what they value and certainly not forget those values just because a guy comes along..well done!! xx

  2. There's no reason to like a smoker. I mean, smoking kills! I'm glad you're one of the strong ones who stand by who they are, world could use more girls (and boys, too) like that. And I agree, no one should lie about who they are and what they do. ♥

  4. I am totally with you on this. There's no reason to lie because the truth comes out eventually anyway, always be who you are! Besides, why would you want to be with someone who you can't be yourself around?!

  7. Haha, yes, we all have our little imperfections, but being a liar is a deal breaker. In his defense, telling a lie at the start of a relationship always works out SO WELL in movies and tv shows (not)! If he was smart, he'd quit smoking....if he was really smart, he'd tell you he needed a great woman to help motivate him. :)

  8. Very well put, dear! Yeah, as much as I can understand why he would have lied about smoking - especially if he was totally into you and scared you wouldn't give him a chance - it definitely wasn't cool. xx

  10. PS - I only know how the be me. It would be confusing to try to remember what I "think" if I tried to be what I believed others wanted me to be.

  11. "Your imperfections make you unique, your mistakes make your identity..."

    TRUE. We don't need to pretend to be something else just so people will like us. We can't make EVERYONE genuinely like us, but we can always have their respect if we just be ourselves and show them that we can stand up for who we really are :)

  15. NOthing like starting a relationship with dishonesty. Sorry things didn't work out, but something better is ultimately around the corner. Even if it's just being fabulous on your own for a while!
