Lies

Updated: Apr 11

She doesn't lie because she's mean.

She doesn't lie because she's selfish.

She doesn't lie because she hates me.


Nah.


She lies because its the way she learned to survive.

She lies because she doesn't trust me to know what's best for her yet.

She lies because its all she was taught to do.


Also.


Sometimes she lies just because she's a kid.

And she is selfish.

And she is mean.


Sometimes.


Its not my job to tell her lying is wrong.

Its not my job to tell her lying is bad.

Its not my job to shame her for her survival skills.


No.


It IS my job to prove to her that she doesn't have to lie anymore.

It IS my job to make her feel safe.

It IS my job to earn her trust first, before expecting her to trust me.


Yes.
