Reality just is  
Why is it that people get so defensive and upset when you tell them that you understand what reality *really* is, how things *really* work, and that you accept that? That you understand the actual limitations of the situation and are willing to deal with them.

How is this a bad thing?

Sure, it may strip away some illusions, but isn't it better to deal with things properly from the start rather than having a situation muddled with false beliefs or expectations?

It's not like I'm saying I'm perfect - not even close. In many ways admitting to, understanding, and acceding to reality have more to do with acknowledging my own frailties and shortcomings as anything else. And it allows me to protect myself as well.

I don't understand it, either.

At least I can say, realistically, that you are not alone. 8-)

Maybe it has to do with stripping away another person's illusions of themeselves? We all have the person we'd like to be, and maybe it hurts them to be told that they are accepted despite what reality is.
