Trust me when I say that after every deception, the truth will come out. The truth about that person, the truth about their lies and the truth about how much you really meant to them.
The people who deceive you are only deceiving themselves because eventually, they won’t be able to run away from the truth. They can’t run away from their demons or their flaws. They won’t be able to wear the deception mask for too long because they forget one very important factor, they forget that people eventually take their blindfolds off, their intuition kicks in, they start seeing the true colors, they sniff the lies and they finally walk away when they’ve had enough.
If someone deceived you, it says a lot about them, not you. If anything, you should be happy that you’re no longer associated with someone who can’t be real with themselves or people. You should be happy that you’re no longer in the presence of someone who can’t be genuine or vulnerable or sincere.
But every deception is a confirmation from God that this road is not for you, that these people are not for you, that those who deceive you need to heal their own issues before you can truly trust them or love them. Every deception is a confirmation from God that you’re looking for happiness in the wrong place. Deception is God’s way of redirecting you so you can keep finding your truth. Away from those who are still running away from theirs. Away from those who think they’re too clever for deceiving you and maybe even laugh about it with their friends. They gloat over breaking you but they’re only breaking themselves and that’s the saddest truth of all — how broken they really are.
Because after every deception, you dodge a bullet and it goes straight back to them. Shattering the glass they used to cut you and it wounds them instead. After every deception, you heal while they remain broken.

This note book has been through so much 😂 I use it for all my random story ideas, song ideas, and plot ideas. Though it is starting to fall apart, I love this little book because it reminds me of what I love to do. Write stories.
i never noticed how much i say “i’m sorry” until last friday. i was standing in jet blue, terminal five on the bag drop off line with my family. my mom needed help getting something out of her backpack. while assisting her, a woman came up to me and asked “are you all on line ” my immediate response was “yes, i’m sorry.” i didn’t think i had said anything wrong until my mother looked up from what she was doing to say “you cannot say ‘sorry’ for everything.” in that moment, i realized that i say sorry in situations i have no control over. what was i “sorry” for standing on line where i belonged being before the lady was did i truly mean that i was sorry “i’m sorry,” a term that is often overused. it is to be used when apologizing for the hurt you’ve caused someone or for a mistake you’ve made. it is supposed to convey the message that you’ll do better. take this moment to remember the last thing you apologized for. was your apology necessary probably not. we use the term so often that it has become second nature to say although it no longer bears any meaning. there is no need to say “sorry” for someone bumping into you, having an opinion, not meeting someone else’s expectations, or being who you are.
now think about this :
why are people so apologetic has it become a societal norm are people so offended by our actions that we feel the need to say it so often do people enjoy hearing it
i mean, they must enjoy hearing it. the woman on the line responded to me with “it’s okay.” what was “okay ” why didn’t she say “no need for an apology ” how do we differentiate between when someone truly apologizes from when someone is just saying it i’d love to hear your thoughts ; feel free to comment or dm me if you’re not comfortable stating your opinion publicly. — scg —
