"Let me be patient, let me be kind. Make me unselfish without being blind. Now I may have faith to make mountains fall. But if I lack love then I am nothing at all. I can give away everything I possess. But left without love then I have no happiness."-Lauryn Hill
Relationships (of any kind - friends, family, lovers) that are based on anything less than honesty are nothing more than superficial exchanges. Things that have been shackled, and denied the light that truth brings, will never grow or expand. As difficult as it might be to accept, someone who lies to you does not respect you. Someone who does not respect you can't really be your friend. As disappointed as you may feel, there is immense value in accepting this.
