The day I told only the truth

I remember that morning like it was yesterday. I woke up feeling unhappy, unsatisfied and most of all, tired of all the games, lies and fake relations. 

The first thing I did was to tell my boyfriend that I was cheating on him. We fought, I cried, he broke up with me. I was so lonely and sad. One month later I met my future husband, we fall in love and are still together. So, my first truth of the day brought me a happily ever after. But let's get back to the day. 

After the fight with my boyfriend, I felt like crap, but I still had to go to work. On my way to the office I called my grandmother. She wasn't so well lately. She even forgot my birthday and I was her favorite grandchild. We spoke for a while on the phone. At the end I told her that I loved her. It was my day of telling only the truth. And I am still so happy I did that. “I love you” turned out to be the last words I told my grandmother.

In my office everyone annoyed me. My boss was so incompetent that I just couldn't take it anymore. So I told him in his face everything I thought of him, of my colleagues, of my job and of his leadership. He wasn't very happy to hear the truth. Two weeks later he fired me. Long story short, I was depressed for 3 months, I drank, I cried, I ate unhealthy food and didn't have any purpose to live. To tell you the truth, everything turned out great. I found a new job, I like my new colleagues and I don't hate my boss. Also, I feel that a promotion is coming up, fingers crossed.

But let's get back on that day. After a long day at the office, I made plans with my friend. We went to my favorite bar. We spoke about me and my problems for a long time. At the end of the night I told her I knew she was sleeping with her boss. She never told me that, but I've known her too well. I've had noticed the way she was smiling, when she was talking about him and also too many of her stories started with his name. So I told the truth, she didn't deny, but she became braver. Two months later she wanted everyone to know about their relationship. Turned out he didn't want that. Do you know why? Because he was married. He broke her heart. But don't worry, at the end she was ok.

After the bar I went to my lover (the one I was cheating to my boyfriend with). I told him that I was no longer with my boyfriend. He said things were moving too fast for him. I think he got cold feet the moment he realized I was single. The next day he kissed me goodbye and never called me again. I heard he married a beautiful woman and now they have two children.

Everything happened on that day, the day I told the truth, the day that changed so many lives.
