“Just because you speak the truth, doesn’t mean it’s right”, someone spoke this sentence to me a month ago, and it wont leave my mind.
What does it mean to be right? Doesn’t speaking the truth make you right by default? That would only seem like common sense, and yet common sense is subjective at best; not everyone seems to apply it in the same way.
Since reality is only in our perception, does it mean that my truth isn’t the whole story?
Even if many were to agree with my truth it may still be only a truth and not really the truth, because we don’t have the full picture.
This sentence seems to point out my fault in thinking there is really only one truth, based on my own morals and personal beliefs … does that make me wrong?
I think it’s best to just go around saying “I don’t know” from now on, because I really know nothing about my perceptions and what that is creating in my reality. I like to think I’m an open and allowing person, that there is room in this world for many views… but even I get caught up in the power of my perceived “truth”.
