I love you, I really do. But lately lies have been slipping out slowly but surely and I don’t know what to do. The only responses I seem to get are “Little white lies don’t count,” “You are freaking out over nothing, it really isn’t a big deal,” and the best one yet – “I lied to protect you.” I told you from the very beginning that I would ALWAYS prefer the truth over any bullshit lie, no matter how much it would hurt me. If you haven’t noticed already, it hurts even more to find out you have been lied to rather than just telling me the truth to begin with. I almost feel like I’m not worth the truth to you. Sure they are “stupid little things” you lie about such as what time you get home, who you are with, and where you’re at – those really don’t matter right? I just figured since I am your girlfriend of two+ years and your “best friend” you could tell me anything – regardless of my reactions. I cry every time I find out you lie to me and quite frankly I’m getting sick of it, I’m sick of feeling like garbage. I’ve never been so insecure about myself, I have never lacked so much self confidence until recently. Please stop, stop before you push me entirely away. I really want things to work out but the little things are beginning to get to me. I need you to be 100% honest with me – NO MATTER WHAT. Please don’t throw everything down the drain because you’re afraid of my reaction – maybe I wouldn’t react the way I do if you would just be up front the first time. Please.
