The truth of the matter is that what’s done is done. No excuses are necessary. You can’t go back and change anything, so there’s no point in being stuck in the past. Excuses never work, you’re only lying to yourself and lying to yourself never helps anything. Eventually all the lies and the excuses and the alibis fall away and you’re left here, stripped with the truth before your very eyes, whether you’re ready to accept it or not.
