"The truth is always the truth!"
I have always said and will always believe, the truth never changes.
"Truthful lips endure forever,
It doesn't matter how much time will pass, the truth will always come out.
I thought I was protecting the family because the truth would destroy it. Boy, was I wrong!
To find out years later that so many already knew the truth and had been covering it up themselves hurt beyond words. I was the child watching those older do exactly what I was being taught not to do.
Had I followed in those footsteps, the journey might have been different, but I can't imagine it would have been better.
"The truth hurts".
I would say covering it up hurts so much more. I learned who I could trust and who I could believe in. Yes the truth hurt, but the lie hurt more!

Ain't that the Truth.
