I'd rather know the ugly truth than believe pretty lies... Is this true though or do we allow ourselves to believe what we want to believe as it's easier to digest and less painful to face? |
I know that even if the truth is painful at the time, it's still preferable to believing everything is fine or I just don't have interest in this or that, or it's not you it's me, if in reality everything wasn't fine and it was me all along and i was the cause for the lack of interest in whatever if all those things change as soon as I am out of the equation. Denial is a powerful sedative when dealing with truths that aren't what you want to believe.
"The truth will set you free" but free of what? maybe this is intended to be the Bobby Magee version of freedom.
I do know i am responsible for my own happiness and it's stupid and unrealistic to try to get that from anyone or anything else.
