Why people seek so hard to know the truth when they know lies can make them happier?
Masochists or hypocrites?

Because the truth is harder to accept than the reality they paint for themselves
When people say they want the truth - I think they want their own version of the truth confirmed - People convince themselves it is the truth then when someone throws cold water on it with their version of the truth, it is going to get messy.

They think truth tastes like candy. But in reality, it isn't.
Everyone lies. Lies are necessary at times. It's impossible for any human to go through life without lying. People are too scared to admit they lie. They fear it'll put them in a negative light. They want to come across as trustworthy and honest people. Admitting they lie puts their character into question
