Which do you prefer? Know the truth and be hurt or not know the truth and be spared from the pain? Most would probably answer the first but think deeper, if knowing the painful truth could alter your life forever and leave you scarred, would you still choose it?

thank you for the warm welcome. I think a lot of people choose to know the truth rather than be left in the dark. This means people would take the risk of being hurt than be clueless and deceived.

I would always prefer to know the truth even if it is painful rather than live with a lie. the reason is simple. Someday or the other you will have to face the truth and then it would appear unbearable. so its always better to face the bitter truth even if it has harsh consequences. Atleast you can fell happy you know the truth.

i would prefer the first one. know the truth and be hurt. once i come to know the bitter truth, i will get hurt for few days, but eventually, i will come over it after some time. but being unaware of truth, doesn't know how it will end as. could be worst than today.

for me, i'm prefer to know the truth even though it will hurt me. i can't stand to lie that people tell me. telling the truth is simple but its hard to do because sometimes people doesn't want to hurt our feeling. so, they lie. however, once someone told you a lie, that lie can keep goes on and on until he/she telling you the truth.

I myself am a type of person who has gone through a lot of emotional trauma. I've been lied to before and I've had the harsh truth told as well. I've thought about it and I honestly can say I'd prefer to be scarred emotionally from the truth than believe in a lie. Sure you don't know its a lie but that doesn't change the fact that it is one and I'd rather live a real life and not something I imagine in my mind. Like I've said I've been told the truth before and it wasn't nice. I might have wished the person hadn't told me that afterwards but upon further reflection I really do not regret it and wish it differently.
