I think I can handle the truth. If someone were to come up to me and explain a situation, tell me what they actually felt as opposed to what I wanted to hear, yeah, I think I could handle it. However, half truths, ostentatious bullshit, doubtful decisions and prevarications, that I cannot handle. I don't care if it's to shield me from the 'anguish' or to feed their own ego or to set their unsure minds at ease. I honestly don't give a shit. Just say it and get it over with, you know? Save us both the hassle and just get it over with.
