False hope


Agree with this quote? It’s hard when you watch someone suffering in a situation that you know is hopeless and only two options are available to you. Do you lie and make out everything will be okay to ease their suffering or do you rip the band aid off and give it to them straight. False hope in my opinion is only prolonging their suffering, yes it is heartbreaking to know that once you reveal the cold hard truth of the matter, they will completely fall apart but at least then, the long task of rebuilding can begin. They may hate you for it, possibly never speak to you again but in reality they would just be living a lie, a fantasy that is just that. No one wants to hurt those dear to them but sometimes in life it’s the only way to make them see sense.

    1. Hi Sarah. It’s harsh but I seem to be doing it a lot lately and I hate it but pretending that everything is going to be okay when it isn’t, doesn’t help in the long run.

      1. I completely agree. You have a lot of strength for realizing it. ā¤

      2. And yet I feel like the bad person…. I really miss my carefree childhood šŸ˜€

      3. If you’re hurting, you deserve to do something about it.
