Truth is this...
Some people want to hear the truth. I agree with that. Because more than making someone smile from a lie it is better to make that person cry from truth.
But you have to remember one thing. If you want to know the truth then you should have courage to bear it. Because truth is not sweet always. It is harsh. That's why it called bitter truth.
Once you asked for truth you must know the other person will reveal it. Then it is your turn to accept it and move on in your life.
But is that what happen exactly? After you hear the truth you say your are sad to hear it and you got hurt. yes.. you knew it before. Truth can hurt you.. But now what is this? You wanted the other person to lie to make you smile? Then you should have ask him 'lie to me'. Then he would do that.
So please understand.. Truth is out there.. But if you can't bear it then stop searching for that.
