Trust is a HUGE factor in friendships! Time will tell you just about anything: the truth or correctness of something will (only) be established at some time in the future.
I have a few serious friend-friends. People that I am 100% Honest ~ Open ~ Transparent with. I am comfortable calling them out on their “mess” and they are obligated to call me out on mine. Our agreement is: “If you care about me, then you have a RIGHT to call me out.”
If you are in a relationship/friendship where you are lying to keep the peace – it is only a matter of time…some time in the future you will be tried and tested.
Life is short! Get Real, Get Right, Get H.O.T…OnPurpose!!
