Thanks for sharing this.
I'm currently working through dishonesty and trust issues with my girlfriend and I found your story to be extremely encouraging. I'm coming to learn that by being dishonest in my relationship I'm not fully trusting my girlfriend and withholding love from her.
I've learned so much from all this...and here are a few things...
Lying, omission, all of it, will never work out. Truth is a part of love. And if you're not being truthful with yourself, or the people you love, you are showing them that you don't love them; because having love isn't giving it. And it isn't erasable, you can't take the offense back. You can heal wounds but there will always be scarring whether big or small. I pledged myself to show the largest amount of love to my loved ones within my ability, and grow that capacity for love as I grow older.
You seem to have hit the nail right on the head! This is a truly beautiful thought. This is going to be my mantra for the next few weeks
Thank you again.
