Don’t fan the flames of deceit. If someone made the choice to lie, it’s not your responsibility to back them up. In fact, it could be the worst thing for you to do. No matter how much you care about them, don’t stick your neck out on the line. They’re going through some hardships, but trying to lie the way through it, is not the answer. And you’re liable to be taken down with them.
It’s hard when we watch our family or close friends falter. But trying to deceive others isn’t going to make things better. Everyone must own up to their mistakes and be accountable for their actions. No matter how small or large they are, their choice is not yours to answer for. You can’t learn life’s lessons for others. Nor can you pay the karma they’ve created for themselves. Let them go if they can’t understand your need to step away.
You’ve been through enough on your own path. And you’re trying hard to change things around for the better. Don’t let them drag you back 10 steps where you were down at your worst. No matter what they did for you in the past, you’re walking forward and getting involved in something shady will destroy everything you’ve worked to improve.
Don’t worry about the hurt feelings or anger. Remind them of how hard you’ve worked. Be open and honest about falling back into old habits that you’ve spent months and potentially years to break. Your recovery to stand on your own two feet is more important than fixing their bad mistake. Asking you to participate in their deception isn’t fair to you or your relationship with them. Remind them that their action was mistake, but that’s all it was, a mistake. And they have to own it. You can be there for them in support if they face the truth. As long as you don’t follow them down the same path.
It would be better for them to go back where they started the deception and clear up the matter before it gets too serious. Everyone deserves a second chance. If they don’t face the truth and if they try to embroil you in their “crime”, make sure you stand up for yourself and walk away from the table. If they’re going to hold you out to dry, they’re not the friend you thought they were. Let them go and walk away.
Though the situation will be ongoing, your part in the play should be over today as long as you stick to the truth. Don’t spread the story or talk about it after you say “no”. That could keep you in the game you don’t want to play. You might be called upon later on to fill in a blank or two. You’ll have to judge the situation as it comes and if it arises. But be cautious of who’s asking the questions. You might need some formal representation to keep yourself from being dragged into the situation further.
By the end of the month you’ll be completely out of the drama. So don’t spend too much time worrying about this or what’s going on behind your back. It’s not your fight, nor your responsibility. Be the ruler of your domain and take charge of your actions and your words. Go on about your day and those with the authority will stand by your side. Once again, don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill. It isn’t worth it. And you’re going to be ok.
