The “truth”? See for yourself~

Do you think the truth is real?

But, what is the truth? 

There are always three sides to the story:

~Your’s 

~Their’s 

~And, what actually happened. 

In real life, the TRUTH is whatever you’re comfortable with. 

So little! Bits & pieces

You never give out all the information that you have so that you can avoid being vulnerable. Ask yourself? 

No one remembers any event as exactly as it happened. 

Every time you tell a story, you unintentionally (or intentionally) end up modifying it to better suit your audience or purpose. 

We have the possibility to alter and ended up way better as our truths do the same. In the event that the supreme truth truly existed, a time would come when we’d come to a standstill and we could go no further. Imagine how unpleasant life would be.

A few days ago, I came across this beautiful piece- 

If we’re seeing “a few bad apples” every 28 hours, at what point do we look at the apple tree and questions the health of its root? 

Truth exists the same way. 

At last, remember ~ It’s not necessary to utter the “truth” but, it’s mandatory not to go with “LIE”

  1. That’s so true. This is why I can’t watch shows like “Law and Order” or “Thin Blue Line” because the narration and the story line are somehow leading gullible audience into certain conclusions. Also our school and our books and our history too. It gives an air of finality and authority. However there are a lot of shades in a given story and we should always be so vigilant.

  2. Every tv show & movie along with history books doesn’t even provide the actual truth.
    They just love the manipulation of our minds.
    It’s always biased in accordance with the ruling power.
    That’s why it’s important to think of every side before coming to a conclusion.
    Thanks, haoyando, for your insightful thoughts as always.
    Have a good day ahead.

  3. That’s so simple n sweet of a big story of both sides against the actual story of what has happened yet it’s all efforts are bits n pieces to pick it with no void of lies. Well penned Abhi.

  4. Every situation must be dealt with accurately & truthfully.
    However, the time we’re living in, presents the exact opposite.

    Thank you, Suma. Your view point is excellent as always.
    Have a good day ahead.

  5. Herein lies a lot of wisdom. The truth usually never proceeds without being tainted. Multiple versions governed by multiple judgments and perspectives.
    Great sharing, Tanishq. 🙂

  6. That is the harsh reality. Often, people don’t understand the consequences of one modified forward. That’s why I added~ “It’s not necessary to utter the “truth” but, it’s mandatory not to go with “LIE”…
    Thank you, Terveen.
    Much appreciated🙏

  10. Yup there’s always three sides to every story and we can only know what really happened when we listen to both sides and try to see what really happened. I also agree there’s a difference between lying and not telling the truth. Great post!

  12. For one thing, what happened is or what is – is not what we see. What we see is undoubtedly our perception – how we see it. And for the second our experiences are essentially modified by us to fit our emotional needs, how we feel about them. And that’s why what we call a lie is often the reflection of someone’s emotions that he/she isn’t able to discard at that moment – like fears, insecurities, jealousy or grandeur etc. And the same goes for our so-called truths.

  13. We find your topic especially interesting as our dear Master is preparing a progamme and podcast about objectivity.
    Is not only a problem with ‘truth’ but with ‘real’ as well. Wittgenstein and some other philosopher saw the challenges with ‘truth’, ‘reality’ etc. as a linguistic problem. But we suppose that’s only one side of the coin.

  14. “Every time you tell a story, you unintentionally (or intentionally) end up modifying it to better suit your audience or purpose” ~I’ve included every emotion with the word “purpose.”
    One more thing, I don’t consider every emotion value as innocent.
    Those emotions that create chaos & damage are more of vengeance.
    That’ll be all.
    Your views are appreciated.
    Have a good day ahead.

  15. Indeed! It is interesting.
    Truth can be biased even in its complete form but, reality often shows us the profound path.
    Gonna search about Wittgenstein.
    Thanks for passing by, Klausbernd/The fab four of cley.
    Have a good day ahead.

  16. “In real life, the TRUTH is whatever you’re comfortable with. ” LOL. Well said. We often fall into the trap of self serving philosophies. Wonderful post.

  17. Writing in the first person can I be I sure I am writing as me?
    If I think I describe true events, what in my mind’s eye I see.
    Can I recount truthfully pictures I find lurking in my memory?
    When I reinvent, interpret, reconceive who I was, am, will be.

    We change, adapt, embellish memories, ensure they stay inside.
    If they gain pacing, drama, intrigue in telling, have we really lied?
    Do we delude only ourselves or others with stories we tell or hide
    Or do we only seek to reason, understand, to cope, to abide?

    Now I don’t know the answer, perhaps all are somehow true.
    Certainly, truth that lives inside your mind and heart is reality to you.
    Maybe we spare our feelings, telling little lies to muddle through.
    A gently lie spares us pointless pain, trumps unkind truth told in lieu.

    Though little lies may blend together, so we become confused.
    It may be difficult to know who we are if oft the truth we have abused.
    We may then hurt those we thought to spare; they will feel hard used.
    In the ones you hurt, include yourself. This cannot be ignored, excused.

    Know we’ll change past events, alter details; it’s how our mind works.
    Often nothing dire hides behind the curtain, no fear of sharpened dirks.
    It gives lots of scientists large study grants and employs lots of clerks.
    Though I doubt it, maybe someday they will explain our quirks.

  18. I used to teach that skill in college. I taught my students to consider that what’s true one day might not be true the next. A fact must be reliably a fact over time. .
