One of the things that bothers me about people in general is that they claim to want to hear and know the truth, but once you tell them the truth and begin calling a spade a spade, they tend to turn a deaf ear towards you and pay you absolutely no mind whatsoever.
That is something that really grates on my nerves because when people say that they want to hear the truth, and you tell them the truth, then they should at least take some of what you have said under consideration instead of going to great lengths to totally ignore you.
These types of people are not being honest with themselves because they don’t want to hear the truth, they only want to hear what they want to hear. Isn’t that a form of deception at it’s finest? I believe that it is because these people are living in self-deception. I have a saying that I live by, “I’m not a bakery and I don’t sugar coat things.” In other words, you shouldn’t ask me to tell you the truth if that is not what you really want to hear.
