Sometimes, things are not what you expected them to be. They did not turn out the way you thought they would and you found out something that hits you like a ton of bricks. That is shock. It is not a pleasant feeling, unlike surprise which is usually used to describe something good and happy.
Shock is when you found out something you shouldn’t have. It is when you realized you have been scammed by that sales staff promising that the product will work. It is when you realized that a person you trusted has been hiding a terrible secret from you. Perhaps it is when you found out a person are not who they seem to be. When what you believe and expected is different from what is revealed. That is shock.
Perhaps after the initial feeling of shocked, it will be best to keep calm and think about what action to take, after that unpleasant discovery. As the saying goes “Hurt me with the truth, but don’t comfort me with a lie”. In my opinion i feel its better to hear the shocking truths than to live on not knowing them. This is because the truth will eventually find its way out into the light. What is your shocking story?
