as hard as i find this to conceive and believe:
HONESTY IS NOT ALWAYS THE BEST POLICY.
see, it's even hard to type.
context: i, being the openly honest person i am, was in a tough situation. so, i chose to go the honest route rather than waiting to see if the situation would figure itself out. after doing so i found out that what i said, probably didn't need to be said because it was already known (although i wasn't aware of that), and my saying it out loud, in the end, really just kinda made it worse.
so now i know, there are some things i just need to keep to myself.
see, it's STILL hard to type.
but, lesson learned.
