Don't like hearing the truth? Then this post may upset you.
Hi, Hi, Hi,
I‘m somebody who likes to tell it like it is.
In real life I say the things that people don't like to hear, but are the truth, regardless.
Nothing too insensitive of course, like personal appearance, that’s being freakin roooood.
If my wife asks, ”Does this, dress, pair of shoes, necklace, etc, look OK”? I tell her exactly what I think, good or OK or bad. It took her a while to get used to this but she appreciates my honesty and has realized that it is the best policy.
Recently a musician mate, of a mate of mine, asked me to go to a local pub where his band were playing.
I replied. "I won't be going Pete. I don't like country music but I hope that it all goes great for ya'.
Was I unnecessarily, offensive, horrible or harsh? I don't think so. Did my mate freak out at my brutal? honesty to his mate? Not at all.
It was the truth, so why lie about it?
In fact, he said this,
"You know what, Phil, I can always trust that you'll tell the truth and I respect that". And why wouldn't he and others respect it?
There’s an important life lesson, right there.
People justify their lies under the guise that it makes others feel
better? They make up excuses, so not to hurt other people’s
Or p’raps the real truth is that, we lie just to, make OURSELVES
Do people think that others are not strong enough to handle the truth? So we choose to lie to them instead? Do we wrongly believe that the lie, because a 'nice' lie, is the best option. It's not. Not in most cases.
Question for you.
If I were to ask YOU, "Would you rather be told the truth, or be told a lie, because it makes you feel better"? Which would you choose?
There may be some merit in, "ignorance is bliss" and "what you don't know can't hurt you". However, I would ALWAYS rather be told the truth.
You should toooooooo.
Why always? Because, it helps you to, perform better and live a better, more real, life. But, as you damn well know, it's become acceptable for most of us to accept and do, bending the truth.
All advertising is about, emotion - manipulating, half -truths, that make you feel/believe that you, will be happier, be liked more, and so on...........if you buy 'their' stuff. Much like it being sorta' mandatory for politicians to, twist/spin truths, or lie.
That’s what we’ve all been fed and accepted, over decades. It’s made most people (not me, though), over -accepting of, half truths, all levels of deception and even downright lies.
Today most people can't, handle the truth, they’re “afraid of reality" in its, most credible, rawest, form. Their, comfort- bubble, self - delusional existence, must not be undermined.
But life isn't about everything being, hunky dory. Because, like it or not, life is not fair.
Never has been, never will be.
(It's not easy to accept that life's not fair, and, it might not be fair that life isn't fair, but that IS the reality, the truth. Life ain't fair).
Ignore 'the facts(truths) of life' and life will remind you very quickly what you're trying to, suppress, cover up, what cracks you're filling with, half - truths.
My mission is to stand out from all the, boring, mundane, trite, woo woo, made- to -appear - easy, become -a- better- you- today-with-little-or-no-effort, stuff, that the net offers.
The misinformation, from way too many others, that ooozes out of your PC screen and into your mind, keeps you, entertained, not informed and empowered.
Lastly 46 words on 'the facts of life' (truth) from me, via Albert Einstein:
"The proliferation of 'lives' of all kinds and 'things' of all kinds provides one unbroken chain of evidence to support the fact that man is the maker of his own destiny; and his thoughts and his acts are the tools with which he does the making". Albert Einstein.
Think long and hard about this. I have for years. Why? Because, it's a truth that can't be argued with, however much you or I or anyone else, might try.
It's pure unadulterated, Self - Empowerment.
Hope this post helps to let you know that there's a real person behind thoughtistry.
There y' are then, hope you found this post of interest and value,
