    Denial or truth would be determined by perspective.  Perhaps a solid personal "truth" to you would cause someone else to say you're in denial.  I think everyone would like to live in truth, but that would mean there would have to be a concrete truth to believe in.

    You: "You're short"
    Me:  "To a child, I'm tall"

    Is that denial or truth?!

    I would prefer to live in truth. It is always better to face what reality is than in living an fake illusionary world where things happen as you meant them to.  When this illusionary world breaks, it leaves you with hell lot of pain.

    But i agree with Alosea, that truth or denial differs as there is  a difference in perspective of different people.

    According the the book "Denial: Self-Deception, False Beliefs, and the Origins of the Human Mind", denial of death keeps us sane enough to be functional.

    Do you agree?

    For example, do you believe this??
