But if we turn the proverbial blind eye, pretend not to notice what is happening, think merely that we are imagining things and that everything really is all right, then who are we actually trying to fool?
Ourselves, or the world?
If we carry on fooling ourselves then there must come a point when reality is bound to hit home, and the imaginings become a glaring and stark reality.
If we carry on fooling ourselves for too long then sometimes it may be too late to reverse any situation we may find ourselves in.
If we carry on fooling ourselves and the world who will end up getting more hurt?
We all make mistakes in life, and sometimes even trying to rectify situations doesn’t actually alter the final outcome.
Destiny and fate will ultimately bring us to where we were meant to arrive.
But do we act like the ostrich and bury our heads in the sand, wishing and hoping for a different outcome?
Or do we confront our fears and demons?
