One of the things in life that we can’t preclude aside from death and change is the truth. Some of us, if not all, may have had our fair share of experiences wherein we tried to conceal the truth from others. We may have our own different intentions for doing such secrecy, but regardless of our intentions’ nature, we all have failed. And to those who up to now are successful in fooling others, soon enough everything will be out in the open. It may take weeks, months, even years, for the truth to be hidden, but no matter how hard we try to keep the secret veiled, the truth shall find its own way to be discovered.
So one piece of advice, as soon as possible, unconver the facts to those concerned. Many might get hurt, but that should be expected. It is really hard to accept the truth, most especially when it has to with a lot of people close to you. But people are forgiving. Just remember that. It’s part of our human nature. Some may take a while to forgive, but indubitably, in time, all will be well. Explain everything lucidly and just wait for their acceptance and forgiveness. Who knows, the people around you may have thought about it being existent beforehand and have somehow accepted the possibility for it to be true. Wouldn’t that be easier for everyone?
Although speaking about the truth would really require someone to have a vast amount of courage. We won’t be hiding it in the first place if we know that there’s a possibility for us to be worse off, right? So think about it. And I mean it. Don’t ponder about it once or twice, but as many time as possible because when the truth reveals itself, surely, you’ll be in trouble. Just remember: truth hurts, but not knowing will always and forever be harder.
