#MarriageChronicles 10: Love The Way You Lie
Hellurr…would you believe me if I said I’ve missed you? That won’t be a lie at all as I’ve sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. A LOT has happened these past few weeks! I fell terribly ill, my blog got yanked off, I lost some files, gosh…where do I start from? Well let’s just say it’s great to be home again. These walls feel just as safe as the last time I was here. How have y’all been though? Oh hey for some reason, Riri and Eminem’s Love the way you lie sits perfectly with our blog story today. It’s kinda similar to the last post here. Let’s dig in.
What better day to come back than with a marriage chronicle. I watched scandal last night and how Olivia shattered Blake’s heart all over again and I was like oh no!!! I get that she told that horrendous lie to save his life but what if we all don’t have to lie? Isn’t there a better way to save our loved ones from hurt instead of lies?
I remember asking my friend who was seeing this guy I perceived to be a chronic cheat. We all perceived it. She obviously was the only one who didn’t. And I asked her one day just for the sake of it, if she’ll want her husband to tell her when he cheats or lie that it’s all ok. She said she’d love it if she never knew. In Riri’s words, she loves the way he lies..hmm.
We all lie. Truth. But to love that we’re being lied to is a different game. Would you love to be lied to in such instance? I didn’t want to answer this question myself. I wanted to read from you first. A lot of us are scared. Ignorance they say is bliss and what you don’t know won’t hurt. We get so scared these days of being hurt that we forget to truly live.
Maybe I should answer the question, I’ll want to be told the truth. It would break me no doubt but at least I won’t be walking in the dark. I’d want to know everything, who she is, what lead to it, if he enjoyed it, etc. Call me silly but I’d want to know. That way I have a clear picture before me on the decisions I have to make for our future.
I really want to discuss this. What would you prefer? The lie or the truth? Drop your comment below and let’s get talking!! Lord knows I’ve missed that.
*hugs and kisses*
Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better
