I think most of the time it really is better to know the truth. Sometimes the truth can be an awful thing but is it really better to believe in a lie when someday down the road you find out the truth and you realize you’ve been lied to for years on end? I really don’t think so. It can also be hard to be the one that has to tell the truth about something but it’s so much easier to remember truths than lies. At least IMHO.
