I’ve seen this so many times. People who are selective about which parts of a situation they own up to. People who deliberately avoid speaking about their actions that really caused harm.
Telling half a story and avoiding the parts that show you are in the wrong and hurt someone badly, is lying.
It’s a lack of courage.
It’s a lack of integrity.
It’s manipulating the truth, to cover your arse.
It’s manipulating the truth, to avoid responsibility and accountability.
I don’t trust such people and people who engage in this behaviour, often show their true colours when pushed.
The worst part of being able to detect when this is occurring, is knowing how many people engage in this.
And when it’s someone you trusted, it makes the betrayal, painful.
