Why Knowing The Truth Hurts

I was listening to the radio earlier today when this question popped up into my mind. I’m not sure why, yet it made me think that this is an interesting topic to post on my blog. Have you ever wonder as well why does finding the truth behind something is painful?

In some situations, letting someone know the truth is not a good idea. Probably because we’re already aware of how things can get messy and chaotic when we find out the truth. Yes, we all have different ways of coping up with such circumstances but we can’t avoid the fact that the result is still the same – it’s hurtful.

I had a brainstorming with some of the closest people in my life about this question. Surprisingly, they have the same thoughts! They answered that reality is painful once they find out because we’re not ready for it. Maybe because we have been deceived by lies and thought that it was the truth. We’re in denial of accepting reality so being defensive is our initial reaction. We keep on telling ourselves that it is not what it is but unfortunately, it is what it is.

In my opinion, it’s hard to hear the truth because we build and give trust to people so we expect that they’ll be honest with us. This made me realized as well that it’s better to hear the hurtful truth right away than the comforting lies for a long time. It’s just a matter of respect to others who deserves it so no matter how terrible the truth is, say it. Because at the end of the day, that’s what we all need to hear and it depends on us whether we accept it or not.

Thank you so much for reading!
