Truth is not always true.
Truth is not always The Truth.
There are two types of truth and often, people confuse the them.
- Personal Truth: emotions, feelings, opinions, perspectives – true for a moment in time but can change, limited application
- Universal Truth: facts, not based on mood or personal responses, apply to everyone, don’t change, eternal
As we focus on the needs and wants of others, we can begin to care the right way, so the door to truth can be opened. Then we can accept that recognition and validation are both important and the keys that unlock the door are courage, awareness, compassion, and intellectual honesty.
