Will the truth set you free? Absolutely. If something really is true, it’s part of reality. You’re much better off in contact with reality than not. If you’re ignorant, knowing what’s true sets you free to be knowledgable. If you’re evading or denying, facing the truth puts you back in charge of your life. If going through life requires and implies awareness, then the truth (even when you don’t like it) is always your friend.
