See things as they are.
Give yourself a reality check.
Do not let the ignorant bliss of denial steal away your ability to live in this present moment.
See the facts as they may be, proceed with all the information you now have, and give others the freedom to make their own choices—even if it wreaks havoc on your idea of a romanticized life.
By seeing things as they are and not as you may wish they were, it frees you to accept your truth as your truth.
You are also freed to move in the direction that will actually help you become a better you—instead of meaninglessly floating through life with no real clear purpose or path to development.
