The quotation from Nietzsche sums up things pretty well and he understood this a long time ago.
I have found that people prefer to live in their illusions because the truth can often be painful. This became clear to me many years ago when I worked for a psychic service. When I started the manager told me not to tell people the truth. I asked why because that didn’t make sense to me because I felt if I called a psychic I would want to know the truth. She be told me that people did not want the truth. During my time working on that service I found that that was true. I would have people scream, curse me, or just hang up the phone when I told them the truth. Even though I was directed not to I felt I had to tell people the truth. It does not always make a person popular.
The world loves facades! This is the way that things are going in our culture today. Facing things head on is something most people try to avoid. Nowadays people will text a serious message to someone rather than tell them face to face or by phone. This is an unhealthy way to live and yet this is the direction everything is going.
Life is not always beautiful and pain is a part of life. That is the hardest thing for people to accept that life will not always be perfect and there will be times when things are painful.
What ever is going on in your life face it head on! The truth will eventually find its way to you, whether you like it or not.
