"If a person thinks the truth is hard, that’s usually because he has been lied to or has been lying to himself for a very long time. If the truth hurts, then perhaps his beliefs are the problem. Sure, there are sad things in life, but the truth isn’t one of them. If anything, truth brings peace and closure, not sadness. Sadness in this case is just a natural mechanism letting someone know that his preconceived notion about something was wrong. Reality only sucks for people who don’t live in it."
