#15 of Reflections What do you really mean?

What to you really mean?
By Mary K. Mennenga

It's seems people don't mean what they've said
So they'll say what they think you want to hear
Instead of the truth because it might hurt your feelings
When it's a friend whose opinion is valued
Isn't able or willing to be honest about what they think or feel
It leaves a feeling of mistrust and questioning
What else has been said because it was what they thought
you wanted to hear?
When a friend you care enough about to ask their opinion 
Isn't capable of being honest 
What is the basis of the friendship if it's not based?
On honesty, mutual respect, and understanding
Should it still be called a friendship?

Hearing the truth from a friend is easier to take
Then learning what I've been told wasn't true!
