“There are none so blind as those who will not see”
It applies to us all. None are immune. We all, to a greater or lesser extent, live in a world of our own choosing, filled with self delusion and denial. Never is this truer than when we love deeply. We see only the good, and accept the bad. Provided the positive outweighs the negative we consider ourselves lucky. When the balance tips too far towards the bad many of us convince ourselves to stay true, to remain committed and to stick with it, despite all of the evidence pointing us to the exit. Our hearts are strong and, often when challenged, we fail to accept the inevitable. However, the facts don’t lie.
