Sometimes life feels like it has a revolving door.
People come and go.
Sometimes they stay for a while.
Sometimes they are gone without a chance to say goodbye.
Yet, always there are words unsaid, emotions unexpressed, and truth held back.
So rarely does anyone tell another person the whole truth because we all lie those so-called ‘little white lies’ using the excuse that we are ‘protecting’ the other from hurt or disappointment.
Yet we are really just protecting ourselves from the fallout of the ‘truth bombs’ that we are too afraid to drop…
