Truth

What makes the truth true?

Does it depend on how it is perceived?

Do we sometimes have to sugarcoat some truths out of respect?

In it’s nature the truth hurts,

it stings.

Defining the word truth it is conformity to reality or actuality.

What if my reality is different from everyone else’s reality?

Does it make my truth less true?

There are just some things that are largely acknowledged as true,

then there are certain things that we individually regard as true.

The fact that it varies or differs from one individual to another raises the question on the truthfulness of a particular ‘truth’.

What’s your thought?

(Jan Layton on quora.com. Each of us sees things from our own perspective; so, what I see is different from what you see. That is the primary reason that what we write is different. Each ‘truth’ is valid and may be different tomorrow – based on what is learned in the interim. You have addressed a valid point. Don’t get me wrong. There are some truths that are self-evident and should be respected as such, but we should never discount another’s truth – nor should we discount our own. Thank You for sharing!
