We occasionally stumble over the truth but most of us pick ourselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
Yes of course we run away. But sometimes it is the only option we have. The only way to keep going ahead is leaving certain things behind. The truth shall always come out of the shell as nothing has more freedom than what truth has. The truth is ashamed of nothing.. It is proud of nothing. It is just the dearest creation of the Creator.
