A mind that seeks truth is better than a mind that is filled with delusion. No matter if the truth is pleasant or painful; the truth – in the long run – is what sets us free from ignorance. Many people ignore fact and evidence that go against their assumptions, prejudices, and desires. They aren’t willing to admit when they are wrong. And they cling to a world view that isn’t congruent with the reality around them because they aren’t ready to accept it yet.
