Sometimes we deny it. Sometimes we rely on it. Sometimes we pretend it doesn't exist. Like it or not, it is what it is.
Reality is that which refuses to go away even if you don't believe it.
I encourage you to welcome the truth. Embrace the truth. But brace yourself, it may be more than you bargained for.
With truth comes knowledge. With knowledge comes power. And with power comes freedom... And change.
Loosing an illusion makes you wiser than finding the truth. And once you remove the veil of deceit, your future will thank you.
