The truth hits like a bullet. Your ammunition is fully stocked as I have told you all my secrets. I now find myself drowning in regret for sharing my indecencies with a monster that possesses 2 faces. I am crawling back into the shell that you so strategically coaxed me out of. You had me show you my true colors, only to paint me out with the darkest shades on my pallet.
I know you think you have hurt me, and you probably even take pride in the things that you have done. I assure you that this entire affair has done nothing but make me stronger and perhaps a little more selective when proceeding with my confessionals. What goes around comes around, therefore I will turn the other cheek and walk my own path once again.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 01, 2021:
Strong emotions here.
It's not easy to trust someone has your back & it hurts when it backfires.
It does make one stronger, but crawling back into one's shell is not always the perfect answer.
Accept your secrets. Become a better person on your own.
Let your life shine.
