Would you rather be voluntarily told a lie for the exchange of not feeling pain? Is that not just simply delaying the inevitable? Well one thing I can tell you is that however or whenever you prefer your truth, ignorance is in fact bliss. The involuntary ignorance that's pure & innocent because for once you can actually say you didn't know something. That's how I prefer my truth, in place of stifling emotional pain. And, in not knowing, I find myself not wanting to generally be bothered either. A forced introvert as a means to escape the confines of extending control to others by being receptive to just anything. Does that hinder me? Maybe, but is the feeling of liberation not liberating itself?
And no, this doesn't make me naive in the least as I fully understand the reality I face daily in that folks are primitive as fuck. I'd just rather not lose complete faith in humanity in an attempt to avoid fallacies. So, as I accept the failed nature of man, I'm challenging myself not to lose all hope.
My question to you all this morning is which do you prefer; straightforwardness or omission? The vulnerability of having enough faith that someone will take how you feel into account before making a decision or...the impenetrable solace of not knowing just how disgraceful some people can really be outside of your line of vision? I find there to be several inconsistencies with the premise that strength lies in vulnerability simply because it makes no sense. No really, no sense at all. Mentally, how sane is it to welcome the potential of hurt into your atmosphere just to reaffirm you of how vile a person's intentions can be for no reason at all (Brawn over brain, right)?
But as a measuring stick for experience, can it be more conducive to subject yourself to that same sentiment? Trust me, both ends of the spectrum is necessary to avoid your thoughts of apparent pessimism as I believe people will see this from both ends. The dialogue that follows this post is what my immediate focus is on here only as a means to generate various perspective.
So ask yourself, which would you prefer?
