Truth isn’t painful. Lies are.

Busting the greatest myth of our times in less than 2 minutes.
Truth hurts, right? No, it doesn’t.
So what is it that hurts then?
The pain of the truth doesn’t come from the truth itself, but from realizing the lie, that’s been there the whole time.
That’s why the longer you postpone sharing the truth, the more it “hurts”.
The more it shakes your ground. The more it breaks your world. The more it disrupts.
Regular cheating on your wife 10 years ago? Stole some big money from your ex-boss? Had an unacceptable sexual fantasy when you were 13?
…you better take that shit to the grave.
Lying is more comfortable. There is no tension. It’s fear-driven.
There is no life in it.
It feels like shit, but it’s familiar at least. A slow, comfortable death.
Truth hurts, but lies kill
The truth has never caused any damage. It’s the lies. The large ones and the white ones. The suddenly exposed layer of the rotten — it’s been there all the time!
