Truth? There is no truth. It doesn’t exist.
Every circumstance, every situation, every interaction is false. Nothing is as it seems.
Truth is never true. Why?
Because… it depends. It depends on your perspective. It depends on which side of the fence you’re on.
Let me give you an example. This rose is red. Truth, right? It doesn’t get simpler than that. As the old adage goes… roses are red, violets are blue. But what if you are colorblind and can’t see red. Is it red? If you want to be technical than sure, it is red. The pigment reflects a spectrum of light that is, in truth, red.
This also makes the point for me. One person will clearly SEE or perceive RED. From their perspective it is RED. To another person, one with color vision deficiency, the rose is, in truth, NOT RED.
Your TRUTH is not THE truth. There is NO truth. Roses are red, violets are blue, some see colors fine, some can’t see that hue.
When you finally understand this and relate it to all of your relationships you will begin to understand why others might behave the way they do. You may decided that you truly don’t know or understand someone else’s point of view and therefore may respond differently. Once you see that there is no truth you will begin to realize why and how you have been such an asshole. And you were an asshole. It’s ok though because they were assholes too.
The truth as I see it, in all my narcissistic self-centeredness, is not the same as your truth in all your narcissistic self-centeredness. Often times those perspectives I loosely call truths do not play well. Conflict and misunderstanding lives here.
It’s time to escape the trap, the chains, that have been preventing you from having meaningful relationships.
