having to tell you the truth even though it hurts you
A horrible truth: No matter how many wonderful plans you may have for you and your loved ones around you…. no matter how perfect your plans are and how everything seems to be falling into place… life can end in an instant…
leaving your plans to fall apart, your family and friends to mourn you, your wife to feel so alone, your young children to be lost and lose any confidence and sense of self worth that they had…
He taught me the lesson of death that most people ignore most of their lives
AN ACTUAL UGANDAN WOMAN’S RESPONSE TO KONY 2012
If you want to be well-informed, instead of a stuck up, spoon-fed, brainwashed, “outsider trying to be a hero” then watch this video.
If “everyone needed to watch KONY2012” then everyone needs to watch this video. or the article I found it from http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/world_now/2012/03/uganda-kony-2012-reaction.html
Trust and understanding.
I don’t think I could have told Scott even a tiny fraction of my secrets if I didn’t trust him and if he wasn’t so understanding about all of it. Even all the bad things. While he may not be able to give me advice, or ever really know what to say to anything, he sits there and listens. When I finish talking, waiting for him to be disgusted by me, or to question my morals like most people have done, instead he looks at me and says
"I’m glad you told me." And that’s that.
to tell you the truth. To tell you all the things you don’t know about me. Some of them… I’m ashamed. I don’t have valid explanations. I don’t have any excuse for some of the things I have done in my past… to myself… to other people. How can a person explain some of the things I have done?
How do I explain messing with someone’s heart?
How do I explain purposely making someone worry?
How do I explain that even though I have had amazing friends, there has been a part of me that has wanted to kill myself if only I weren’t afraid of it hurting?
I honestly don’t know how I’m going to explain these things to you. I don’t think I will be able to.
