To not let it be

Is it a good idea to tolerate a friend?

Or is it better to be blunt and hurtful, cut of all connections, and then probably embark on a new start later?

I don't know. All I know is that I suck at being honest to those who are close to me. I am afraid of saying no. I am afraid of displeasing them. I could compromise for their sake. I don't like being in anybody's bad books.

I get this feeling that I tolerate too much. Trample on shit saying "Really, it's not that bad." But deep down, I know it is a lot. A lot to handle, and from the past experiences I've had, I rather prefer to not make big deal out of everything.

Tolerating a friend is not a good idea.


  1. There's so much difference between what we're supposed to do and what our hearts can actually do. I don't think tolerating a friend is a good idea but just like you, I choose to stay on everyone's good side. A lot of us are like that, and it's difficult to change even if you want to.

  2. We all mostly give our friends a lot of rope! If one is not honest with people one is close to, who can one be honest with, I wonder!

  3. It's stressful pretending to a friend. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. It might cause a rift - especially if your friend is going through a bad phase. He/she might feel betrayed and may never forget or forgive. It's tough, but you have to decide. If your friendship is meant to be, it will last no matter what.
