I accept bitter realities of life and live with the hope. Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope implies a certain amount of perseverance i.e. believing that a positive outcome is possible even when there is some evidence to the contrary. Improving on bitter reality will be the sweetest feeling. What will be your choice?

hi rautrahul, i vote for the bitter reality. we must accept life as is. not playing around with something nice yet not true. after all, sweet lie, is still a lie. :-) happy mylotting. :-)

Hi Rautrahul, I without a doubt prefer the bitter reality. I want the truth . Life isn't meant to be all fun and games anyway and I never expected it to be. There will be hard times and disappointments. They all make me appreciate the good times all the more.

i'd also choose the bitter truth rather than the sweet lie. The sweetness of the lie can just wear off then the happiness that lie can give will just turn into sadness. i definitely agree that improving on bitter reality will be the sweetest feeling. you'd be able to cope and deal with it and come out strong and find that happiness.

ill go for bitter reality..cause there's no such thing as "perfect" it's already a part of a person's life to pass through struggles and challenges this is a way of testing us how strong we are to overcome these obstacles.. compared to sweet lie...it's like you're a fool you believed into something wrong,a fantasy, something that can only destroy you in the end or else after you'll know the real deal....

A seet lie would certainly sugar coat the world. It would let you see it with rose colored glasses. Bitter reality might be hard to take. In the end, a bitter reality would be a wake up call. You could only take a sweet lie for so long before it would lose its flavor.

To select between sweet lie or bitter reality. I would prefer sweet lie of course it is nice to be heard by me. The main point is I will know about it is just a sweet lie and have to accept the fact that the person telling is unreal but doesn;t want to offend me. For sweet lie, I have to analysis it clearly and have to accept what mistake I had made and amend it so the sweet lie could be turned into sweet reality.

I prefer the truth. They say that the truth is ugly but it's not the same case everytime. It's much better for me than to get lied on. I don't like to be lied on.

hello rautrahul! as it has been said, "truth may hurt, but it cures". I therefore prefer bitter reality than sweet lies. no matter how bad and painful the situation is, as long as you see it for what is it really is it, you can do something to alleviate the situation, anyhow. You cannot act accordingly if you are confronted with lies, no matter how sweet and alluring the situation may seem. anyway, i do believe that there are two ways to view reality, and it depends on the viewer. one can choose to view a situation with pessimism, thus would actually tell you that such a situation is hopeless and bitter. On the other hand, one could choose to view it with optimism and would say that such reality is bitter for now but it could be improved upon, there's much hope for it and there are a lot more things one could do to alleviate the situation.

Well.I would like to know the bitter realty rather than live in ignorance.But when I haev to communicate it to someone sensitive,I would go it in a gradual sequence starting with a set of sweet lies,bringing them closer to the reality so that the magnitude of surprise is minimized and the concerned person can absorb it.

From what you say you appear to be very optimistic.that is you see good in everything that presents itself.Pessimist is one who is sees bad in everything. I am very optimistic in life. bad things come in life for every one but there is good always hidden therein. For this there are so many stories in Indian epics.What ever it may be we should live on hope only.Otherwise our life becocomes miserable...

Bitter reality is one thing that's hard to accept. But when we do accept it, it helps us cope up with any situations we come to face in the future, it strengthens us, it polishes our character and makes us a better person. Sweet lie only makes us a weakling and it won't make us mature.

I always accept the harsh reality of life. Life is always bitter to me. So I have no choice, other than through all the bitterness of life. When the sweet life to come, I will utilize it well, before the sweet life away.

Hello! I usually try not to lie becaus ei get messed up in my own lies, and i'm allways cought, so my choise is to go with the truth no matter what. I sometimes dleay with the answer because timing means a lot and can soften the truth a little bit and make it bareble both for me and the other person

I choose bitter reality. No use for me to hear sweet lie, however much sweet it is. Bitter reality might make us sad, but it is OK. We can do something in a right track. But in sweet lie, we can't do something in the right path since the information we get is a lie. So, I choose to face the bitter reality, however much bitter it is...
