SO…I was getting ready the other morning when, for whatever reason, The Shins “Caring is Creepy” popped into my head. I hadn’t listened to the song in a long time, but I thought - you know this can’t be TOTALLY random (although, maybe it is, so let’s just take it all with a grain of salt, shall we?)
I thought about a lot of things, but in terms of determining where this story should begin - here’s the thought that really got me to sit down and start typety-typing away:
It’s incredibly easy to lie to people. And, I think, for intelligent, thoughtful people, it’s easier to lie to appease the people around you because, honestly, I think a lot of people prefer to be lied to when the truth would hold them accountable for things that they are not prepared to confront.
Let me explain.
