Words just prove who they pretend to be.
And we know actions speak louder than words. It’s not just an old wives tale.
Someone tells you how much they care about you, how much they love you. But do they really? Or is it just words they think they should say?
When you pour out your heart to them, tell them your innermost thoughts and feelings, do they really hear what you’re saying? Or do they give you lip service, and say they know what you mean, and then launch into a conversation about their own problems that they want your help with?
Are they really listening to you? Or are they too self absorbed to actually think about your feelings? Your problems.
As well meaning as they may appear to be, oftentimes they are still more concerned about their own problems than yours. Or how other people perceive them. Who talk about you behind your back and even tell others what you told them in confidence to make themselves look important, or better than someone else.
Or they may wholeheartedly profess to love everyone, no matter what their political, religious, or other views. After all, to love others is to understand them and respect them even if they don’t always share our viewpoints. Right?
Well, sometimes that’s right. And sometimes not, unfortunately. Many people only like you as long as you agree with them. If not, it doesn’t matter how they used to care about you. They can’t agree to disagree.
Do your words and actions match? Or are you saying one thing and actually presenting another persona?
Which one are you anyway?
