Facing the truth

Sometimes it's really hard to face the truth and even more to accept it. 
To understand how things really are without having the chance to 'understand' them completely or even to change them.

But maybe this is only what we think at first, because we are overwhelmed by fears, doubts, questions. And we don't have answers.

Not having answers can also be useful, though. It's a chance. Take it or leave it.
And I will take it.

Did you already experience such a situation?


A volte guardare in faccia la verità è davvero dura. Per non parlare dell'accettarla.
Non è facile capire come stanno le cose, senza avere la possibilità di "digerirle" veramente o di cambiarle.

Ma può darsi che questo sia solo quello che pensiamo all'inizio, perché siamo sopraffatti da paure, dubbi, domande. E non abbiamo risposte.

Non avere risposte può essere utile, dopo tutto. Si tratta di un'opportunità. Prendere o lasciare.
E io ho deciso di coglierla.

Vi siete già trovati in una situazione simile?
