"it's easier to fool people then to convince them that they have been fooled" -Mark Twain
Truth. I have a personal experience that relates to this truth. There was a girl that I was want to close to and she was going through a situation that I saw firsthand. I observed her situation and wanted to tell her the truth, that she was being used and fooled. For nothing did she believe me, because she was already in that situation for so long that it became all she knew. So I wanted to see something.. Instead of telling her that she was being fooled, I wanted to see how easily she can be fooled. A situation arose, and I told her one thing that was not true... Just to see, because obviously telling her the truth is not getting through her head. So I told her something that was not true and of course she completely believed it. Well I don't like fooling people soul later on I told her the truth, in which she did not believe. I'm just glad I told her the truth anyways, but when I read this quote it reminded me of her.
Though me and her do not have the most positive history, though she has lied to me, stabbed me in the back, misuse my trust, and deceived me and plotted against me, I still hope that she is doing okay. Till this day, though I am nowhere near her situation anymore, I see she is still being Fooled.
"You can leave the horse to the water but you can't make them drink" as for my part, at least I know that I tried to give her the truth but it is up to her to awaken within herself.
Though the "reminded me of her situation, I know many others are facing the same thing. I know people are in situations something like that, similar to what I'm talking about in the quote, and sometimes I have to question like how do you not see that you're being fooled? why aren't you putting things together, connecting the dots to help you understand what is going on around you? Or maybe a better question like why would you lie to yourself? why would you blind yourself to the truth just hope to have something that will never be there?
I try to understand what people go through and why they feel the way they feel so I put myself in her shoes and I kind of did the same thing. But I couldn't help but to put everything together and connect the dots and see the truth so I was always wondering why she couldn't do the same?
Truth is some people just refuse to see the truth, that is if they aren't already ignorant to it
If you are ignorant to it then you just don't know, but if you blatantly see it in front of you why lie to yourself and make yourself feel like it's one way when you know it's really not? Why live a lie?
Honestly in my personal opinion it's a waste of time it's a waste of energy when your life can be evolving into something a lot more meaningful and have a lot more progress and you can be a lot happier just being honest with yourself and growing and evolving from within. I guess that's why they say that one of the rarest things that people are able to do is to live out their own truth. Because it will have to take them to face it first.
