    Why would people rather be SOCIALLY, even SOCIETALLY APPROVED believing in & living a LIE

    than to believe in & live THE TRUTH(being true to oneself) which oftentimes result in their REJECTION, even MARGINALIZATION socially, even societally?

    It was Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" who sang "Cuz the lie becomes the truth".  My secret to this is quite simple.  People have to be saved and turning things around help to clear up uncertainty.  It's this same belief in the "Bible" about the "corruptible putting on incorruption".  But there is a price to pay too.  Even in forgiveness we have to contend with something else.  The perception of it, the going through something, the understanding of its significant meaning.  It's hard to explain really.

    I suspect on some level it's human nature to seek approval, to be loved, and liked. This probably starts in childhood with wanting to please our parents. Gradually it shifts to our peer group, those we're romantically interested in, and our supervisors. In order to get ahead you need (some) approval.
    However something changes over the years as we get older and realize no matter who we are or what we do we're never going to be "universally loved" so we might as well be ourself. In fact it's impossible to truly be "happy" unless you're (being yourself).
    Know yourself, Love yourself, Trust yourself!
    Let the chips fall where they may.
