Putting our spin on reality is what humans do; life is more comfortable that way. So, what's your tendency? Are you aware of your filters and biases?
At one end of the spectrum, some experience most events as negative or burdensome and seem comfortable lolling in misery. At the other end, some refuse to see what might be painful or difficult and choose to redirect their attention to everything positive; they prefer to wear rose-colored glasses.
Ignoring the truth is a game of pretending. You're doing a disservice to yourself and others by rejecting possibilities that might not fit with your worldview or your style. There's something to be learned by those that lean into reality. It takes courage to observe what's happening without hiding behind melodrama or Pollyannaism.
You're not as evolved as you think you are if you're stepping over the truth.
