"So Let it Be Written... So Let it Be Done"

The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world. Please leave it as clean as it was before you came. Thanks for visiting, BTW please leave a relevant comment so I know you were here. No blog spam, please.

coming clean

Sometimes the truth hurts.

Especially when you haven't been truthful to someone whom you care about.

The above statement applies to me, and for better or worse, as I write this, the person I deceived is now processing my confession.

I had thought about coming clean for quite some time now, but for whatever internal reason just wasn't able to do it. I have said in a few places here in this blog that I do not want to make the same mistakes from the past. This, sadly was one of those mistakes that I had made before.

I'd like to say that in the grand scheme of things, this deception is minor, but that would be shifting the blame away from myself, which I can no longer do. It's incredibly easy to deceive yourself, but throw another person into the mix and that changes the entire complexion of the matter. Entirely.

The late, great Dr. Seuss once wrote something like this in, I believe, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas: "A lie is a lie, after all, no matter how small."

The good Doctor certainly was correct.

So when you read this, dear one, know that I am truly sorry for not playing it straight with you from the start. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me and we can move on from here. But if you can't, I will know that I brought it upon myself.
