Sadly at times this is so very true 🙁 It’s hard for me to understand why people don’t want to see the obvious truth that lies right in front of their eyes, but I guess many people have studied the “why” and have come up with their own studied ideas about this occurrence.
Nietzsche (below) was one of Morgan’s favorite philosophers. He said people need their illusions.
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” Nietzsche
Below is a good article that explains why some people would rather believe a lie than look at the ugly reality of a situation. It’s very sad to me that people feel like this, but some do. Many times the truth hurts, and most people would rather live a lie than have to face the truth. I am not sure how they do it. For me I would have loved to believe our precious daughter Morgan had died from natural causes vs. being sexually attacked, beaten and bit, then murdered…but then the truth to me was more important than being spared that pain. So when the evidence and the facts started to reveal that she was in fact murdered, I allowed that searing pain in, then sucked it up, and pushed forward to make sure Morgan will receive justice someday. My husband Steve & I continue our push to have justice served to the ones that did this to her, and we will never give up.
“Viciousness is part of the world we live in, some of us choose to ignore it with the rationalisation of wanting only positivity to flow our way. How selfish we have become! That the pain of others has become a hindrance to the fulfilment of our positive selves.” – Aysha Taryam
