Protected or Hurt?

13 Jun

While having a conversation with a close friend a few days ago she said:

”People think that a lie will protect us from the truth when infact its the truth that protects us from the lie”.

Is protection better than pain?

Personally, I would rather be hurt by the truth than protected by a lie. No matter how good a lie is the truth will one day come out. It could be a week, a month or even a year later but eventually a lie will always be revealed. Finding out the truth later on down the line will be much more hurtful than finding out at the beginning because, you will realise that you have actually been living a lie.

However on the other hand, if someone is trying to protect you and your feelings it shows that they do actually care for you.
