I feel like I’m going insane. Really.
A girl I was talking to earlier today told me that everyone lies (using the word everyone without any qualifiers) and it’s unrealistic to expect otherwise. I thought that can’t be right because I don’t lie, my friend since we were in secondary school doesn’t lie, I know we aren’t the only two, and successful relationships depend on honesty. Part of me wondered whether her words were partly her defending her own lies or something, it just doesn’t sound right at all.
So then I pointed this out, mentioned how it seemed like she then thought that I lie and that this wasn’t helpful to do, and let her know I won’t message her again because why would I, we clearly don’t see straight. Then a while later I get this massive message which says she wasn’t calling me a liar, but repeats ‘everyone lies’, then says ‘well, almost everyone’; says I probably don’t want to admit I lie occasionally (which I don’t, and which contradicts her saying she wasn’t calling me a liar), calls me immature and criticises me for not listening to her side of the argument. What argument??? I mean seriously, I don’t understand; what can I do if someone criticises me for my understanding of what they say if they use a word then change their meaning after the fact, and when they both say they AREN’T talking about me and they ARE?
I would really love some help on this, I mean I feel like a foetus right now, I’m an English native but whenever people talk to me and I process their words, they do this to me and I feel like I’m disabled or broken inside…
