People really need to stop sugarcoating the things they say. If they did, life would be much easier. No more uncertainty, no more doubt, no more wondering about what someone did or is thinking. Lying to people is bad but lying to yourself is even worse. Learn how to not cling on the beautiful lies and words which give you false hope, accept reality, tell the truth and learn how to deal with it. Save yourself the trouble and just say what you mean and mean what you say. A lie is a lie, no matter how small.
