The things you’d rather not know
Sometimes it is better not to know. Because knowing changes everything.
There are some things that affect you even if you try to deny it. That haunt your dreams at night and stray your thoughts during the day.
There are things that change your whole perspective of life.
But there are things that you wished you’d never known, because it hurts too much now that you do.
Because expectation truly is the root of all disappointment. And the more you know, the more that illusion you built up for yourself crumbles down.
Sometimes ignorance really is bliss. In most cases, it is certainly a calm of mind.
And sometimes it is just better to not know certain things. Because maybe that’s how curiosity did kill the cat.
But you’ll always be left to wonder, if it is better now that you know, or if it would have been better to continue living with the false belief of not knowing all along?
Life is a constant dilemma. And the choices we make will undoubtedly affect our entire view of the world.
