I think it was Jesus who said “Ye shall know the truth and it shall set you free,” but it was Aldous Huxley who said, “Ye shall know the truth and it shall make you mad.”
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being honest. 🙂 It’s just that most people can’t handle the truth; most people would rather lie to themselves and regret it the day they die. I prefer to seek truth, especially when it hurts–it’s those truths that are most important to know and embrace.
You’re not abrasive: you’re someone who flies right side up in an upside down world. I like that.
