A Little Upset

You know what I hate?  I hate to be lied to.  Just tell me the truth, even if I don't like it, I'd rather to hear the truth than to be lied to.  I've just discovered that for the past few months, probably actually longer, I've been lied to by a lot of people at the company I work for.   To them they probably don't think of it as anything major, but to me it was.

Ugh. I feel the very same way. Tell me I'm ugly, tell me you hate me, but don't betray my trust. It just makes you feel so violated. I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. I hope you're all able to move forward.

Yup yup yup...I answered 65 questions recently on The Couch and one was 'can you handle the truth?" my response was, I WANT the truth and then I alone will deal with MY reaction to it

Yea, and the worst, or maybe the stupid part, was that I knew they were lying all along, but somehow convinced myself maybe they weren't.

That's a rotten feeling. It's tough enough to trust your employer anyway. But when they give you explicit reasons you can point to, that really sucks.
