Most can't take the truth, including ourselves - often.
Most need truth safe for consumption, ourselves included.
Most prefer their own fantasy to truth. Myself included.
Most are more interested in maintenance of their self and public images than considering each day anew.
To see the familiar anew is a good start.
Stripping away the layers: personal, private, one's conception of our individual privilege or pain. Vanity everywhere. AND, Yes after some time vanity taught me doing too much to self is to deny yourself too much in this world for most to comprehend. Asked to live another lie but do so without vanity - tough. A lie normal life would have us perpetrate.
Truth need be inside you. That is core. I suspect my core truth feels different from yours V.
And related modern psych would have us not be entirely truthful to self. Apparently we need significantly more positive sentiments to function. I wonder? doesn't feel like that in some "primitive" communities. T2.
