The truth always set us free from burden and many questions. But there are truths that we wish to hide and bring in our grave rather than hurting people that we love so much.
Remembering the song “why do we always hurt the one we love”. No one wish to hurt someone they love in any ways although it is inevitable. To avoid hurting the one they love some prefer to keep secrets till death. But, how many people succeed in hiding the truth and how many overcome the guilt of keeping a secret? You may say you want to hearthe truth no matter how it hurts but, do you have the courage to hurt the one you love if ever you are on his/her shoes? To those who have secrets, how long you can endure the feeling of guilt hiding the truth, would you really prefer to bring that secret to your grave than setting yourself free?
I guess that is a case to case basis and depends upon the situation. Probably
There are many questions in life that you may find another question for an answer.
