    Truth. Preferably not presented brutally, but hey, sometimes we are in denial and a harsh presentation is what gets through. At least for me.

    To me, comforting lies eventually lead to even harsher truths.

    Harsh truth. Then you can make less of a fool out of yourself later on.

    Not all truth is harsh.

    ....Some truths are like keys to shackles.

    Not all lies are comforting.

    ....Some lies can destroy your life.

    I simply want truth.

    I will decide for myself if it is harsh or not.

    The honest answer is "it depends".

    Usually, I do prefer people to be honest with me, so that I know where I stand with them. However there are certain things (appearance, image based things mainly - especially if it's in a sexual context) that I could get very hurt by and don't like being brought up. Those who say "truth, always"...well I am sure there are some situations where you don't tell the truth.

    To be fair I only lie in three situations: to avoid offending somebody I care about, to avoid having to do something I don't want to do, or to get something I want. Hahaha.

    I am not that bad though, I would never lie about anything impersonal for example. I don't respect people who are intellectually dishonest.

    Harsh truth - says more about the personality of the person speaking it. There isn't usually any necessity to be harsh; the greater the truth surely the more need to share it in such a way that it can be received and acted upon? If that isn't the aim, then it is merely an accusation.

    Comforting lies...no thanks.

    Depends -
    If I don't want to know something or hear about it I don't really need the harsh truth thrown at me ( say something about a persons past ) or if I'm hiding from some crazy psycho or if somebody is looking to kill me I don't want the other party to tell them the harsh truth of where I'm hiding -
    Or if somebody is having a surprise party or present for me or knows I rather get some comforting lies before knowing the actual truth . However for the most part I'll pick harsh truth - but comforting lies aren't always bad .
