Before I really get going, I wanna say I've decided to take a turn in my blog for a bit, for better or worse. I'm going to be raising some hot topics such as porn,the burqa, lies and accountability . Hey! That's a great headline-- PORN, THE BURQA AND LIES--forget accountability though, that won't sell papers! Some of what I'm gonna be writing about will be for guys and some will be for everyone. By the way,if you are a Christian, please pray for me that I'll be wise about how I tackle these topics.
Gotta hand it to him Eminem is honest, ironically, in his recent duo with Rihanna 'Love the Way You Lie'. My favourite segment:
Next time//There will be no next time//I apologize//
Even though I know it's lies
Talking about the promises he's made and broken again and again in his relationship. I don't know how much of this song is self-reflection, but it sure struck a cord with me. I don’t know about you, but I took a while to think of the last time I 'lied'. Come to think of it, I'm a pretty honest person. Honest? As Eminem picks up in this song, lying is more than just words. It's about intentions, and what expectations I try to give people. Oh. Boy. Maybe I am a liar after all. If you haven't figured it out yet, here's the thing: we lie all the time when we want to get out of something, avoid offending someone or try to protect ourselves. I'm going to tell you of some of the ways I lie. Please stay my friends though! I promise, I'm not lying all the time! (or is that another one..? lols)
Thought to ponder/comment on:
How can a person be honest when people ask probing questions, yet it is not for them to know?
