Aren't you bothered when people lie to you?
To that Girl - the one who had the gift to see,
Oh how it plunges into the deepest places of the heart to look in the eyes of somebody you love and know they're hiding a piece of themselves behind their back. "You can't have it", they draw the line. We humans, made of dust and Breath, we who attempt to paste ourselves back together by super glue and vices, we lie for so many reasons. Malice. Insecurity. Pain. Fear. None of them alright, all due to motives that only God can explain.
If we never discover the place where our sweet souls end and theirs begin, the wounds will be laid bare for re-injury the rest of our lives. They are them and you are you. Their lies have nothing to do with you and have everything to do with hiding. You'll meet people who have hidden and ran and lied for so long they no longer remember the details of their lives. They'll be forced to piece together remnants of how they wish their lives had looked, as they recount the stories that make them who they are today.
So yes, I'm bothered, but no, I won't wear their lies as my precious worth. You shouldn't either.
You can't fix or change people. You can't love 'em "truthful" either. You certainly can't bend or mold or live large enough to fill the void that only Healer-God might fill, should they allow it. You'll never be good enough, pretty enough, or smart enough to satisfy them, nobody will. Their lies serve a protective purpose, or a manipulative one, and until that purpose fades away, so on will the lies be told.
So beautiful girl, run far and fast toward your Heavenly Father.
Trust that He'll send kind somebodies,
Trust that He'll send brave somebodies who sit comfortably inside their very own selves,
Trust that He'll send the somebodies who are able to share their lives with you, unashamed and honest.
Most importantly, rely on God and be that somebody.
Still a fan,
"And now, Lord, You are God, and Your words are truth, and You have promised this good thing to Your servant." 2 Samuel 7:28
