“the problem is everybody enjoys the lie too much. it hurts to face the truth.”
If one can not voice their opinion or put air to a thought, in hopes that it is received and considered, then what is the prose behind a relationship? It is all a controlled lie. It is a misrepresentation of a dialogue, more so controlled to limit opinionated outbursts or an ill-perceived crude disagreement. I refuse to be a party or audience to such a mechanism of control.
If I can not speak without a silent roll of the eye from the receiver, then I am a fool to continue this episodic solution.
I am a fool.
I’ll be “an asshole” for having a difference of opinion, but the root of the issue is not the tenor of my indifference but the speaker’s inability to accept that not everyone is a drone.
