it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your boyfriend is cheating on you
its time to move on
it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your girlfriend is using you for your money
let her go
it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your boyfriend is beating you up
leave him
it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your girlfriend degrades you
leave her
it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your spouse plays you for your best friend
get rid of him
it's not what you want to hear, it's what you need to know

your wife played you for your brother
get rid of her
its not what you want to hear, its what you need to know

you want to be in relationship with someone, he tells you no
move on to someone that genuinely wants to be with you
its not what you want to hear, its what you need to know

we want to hear, but in essence, its all lies
what we need to know does hurt, but its true
you don't want to be in a position where you crying the blues
then you start blaming others than yourself
you need to be wise like a high chief indian telling true stories to his children
or else you will feel hopeless like a lost child searching for love

I like the verbiage in this piece. You use every day, real life scenarios to make the point that sometimes we have to move beyond what we want to hear and start accepting what we know as fact. Nice work. Keep it up. :)

it sounds nice in what we as individuals would like to hear, but in reality, the truth does hurt
its about raising awareness
