Worst mistake ever (For God's sake don't read this)

Why do we lie to one another? If we didn't lie, no-one would ever get hurt. All because some people are just too damn embarrased to tell the truth. I hope you never, ever read this though. But why the fuck do I believe that? Because you believe the same thing? Because you copy me or because I copy you? Because we all just believe it's better not to say, then one idiotic guy comes along, breaks every convention and destroys everything he tried to protect. Smooth mate. We have rules for a reason. "But they're idiotic" he says. "That's true, but they protect us" "From what?" "Ourselves". So damn true. I'm so sorry, and if you read this you'll think I'm even more fucked than before. Or maybe...just maybe I was right. Maybe we didn't tell the truth at all and we both lied the whole time. In that case, we're both hurt. But fuck this. Fuck it all. These conventions are retarded. I don't even know what to say anymore. I thought I was so fucking clever. I was so fucking wrong. Those rules were put there for a reason. I just didnt realise. Still, maybe if we all tore them down together, instead of just one person. There'd be a lot more honesty, but a lot more hurt. I guess I just made the wrong choice.

The first few sentences and the second last one are good. But you swore too much.

Abbreviated version:

Why do we lie to one another? If we didn't lie, no-one would ever get hurt. All because some people are just too damn embarrased to tell the truth. Because we all jsut believe it's better not too say, then one idiotic guy comes along, breaks every convention and destroys everything he tried to protect. Smooth mate. We have rules for a reason. "But they're idiotic" he says. "That's true, but they protect us" "From what?" "Ourselves". So damn true. Still, maybe if we all tore them down together, instead of just one person. There'd be a lot more honesty, but a lot more hurt. I guess I just made the wrong choice.

Hi jitain (this is linh)

yea i suppose lying can hurt. but sometimes it's just a person's way of protecting others. it may not work. but it may be that person's only option at that time.

(ps. don't visit the blog on the link for this comment. it's not mine. it's a joint blog with friends...)

NOPE
keep the original.
if you take the swearing out you miss the emotion in the piece.
the abbreviated version is dull.
its not a piece for small children but so be it.
