Songs for you, truths for me..

What is it about reality that makes it so hard for us to face? Is it the fact that it's so blatantly in-your-face that it's simply easier to ignore? Is it because we don't want to believe certain things because if we do, we'll have to rethink everything we've ever known as "the truth"? Is it because we don't want to step out of the happy little bubble we tend to live in?

I've always believed in the "grey". The disputed. The arguable. The interpretation. After all, isn't everything subjective? Isn't the point of the myriad differences that define us, to see things in our own unique way? We can't possibly all conforn to just one way of thinking.

But what do you do when reality hits you in the face? What do you do when it proves that you've been wrong all along? What do you do when there's nothing you can say or do to change it? Because no matter how much you argue it, the reality isn't really "grey", is it? It's harsh. It's painful. It's heartbreaking. But in a world full of people who bend the truth to suit themselves, it's the only thing that's still absolute...
