What is honesty? Is honesty speaking the truth and being transparent even if it means hurting the person you love?
But if you try to protect the one you love you are not honest that means you are not vulnerable, then that’s not the recipe we know for a healthy relationship.
So then you just the hurt the one you love? And take away a piece of them, after all a relationship in your life changes your perspective towards how you will look at things ahead. It’s like then you look at things from an experience filter. Which may be different from how things are ‘supposed’ to be! But anyway, who knows how things are supposed to be, right?
