Do you consider yourself a truth seeker?

So asking your child to be truthful with you is a wonderful technique to not only get to know them better, but to prepare them for a better life ahead, to be able to support them the correct way and accurately. Same thing with friendships and relationships. Lives don't get us anywhere, at least not long term. So the truth, as they say, will set, is you free. And I seek truth. Let me know what you seek and why. Bye

Hey there. Yes, I'm in agreement with what you said about seeking truth, and I am a truth seeker myself. One of the things my dad raised me and my siblings to do is to tell the truth. If we ever lied, we regretted that we had. He wanted us to be honest and truthful and dealing with him and my mom and all also just in relations with others

What is the purpose of lying? Is it to protect the receivers, or is it a methodical attempt at protecting themselves?

Which brings us to the second point, and that is when someone is dishonest, they're not lying or being dishonest to protect you or the person that they're dealing with. It's to protect themselves. It's a selfish thing when people lie, and the reality of it is when someone lies, they're not getting off the hook

Hello. Thanks so much for commenting on my swell and giving your honest opinion. And as you were given your thoughts on it, I thought, well, you know, maybe, you know, you talking about your background, christian background and everything, and how you believe. So perhaps that's why I'm so stuck on wanting the truth, because I can't tell, I can't stand it when someone's not truthful with me

Because sometimes people, a lot of times, anyway, people will lie because they know that what they're about to say, if it was true, if they're going to be truth, is going to not cause them to be in the positions they're in, whether it's relationship or friendship or work

I yes, this is timely because I had a thought earlier, and my thought is once I know the truth, it allows me to make an informed decision. And what happens most often is when I don't have all of the information and I'm not able to, it becomes complicated and frustrating and sometimes involves some rework. And my thought is honesty is truly the best policy. And it's something that we should just do

But I just thought about the impact that had on my life because if I would have learned the lesson that I teach, share with many people, let me say that if we model our behavior as the sun and just stand still, we may become a little more efficient, a little more stable. And I feel a lot more confident just by standing still. I see the same as seeking the truth. I find for myself that I don't really have to seek it

They go over and over and over for years and years, and you don't get anywhere. At least with the truth, you could decide more clearly what direction you want to go and how you're going to handle it if you decide not to go. So I agree with you. Thank you

Hey, thanks so much for responding. I totally get what you're saying. I feel that truth and honesty are the same thing, in my opinion, because, you know, how you gonna get the truth without explanation? Because when you're speaking your truth, like, you're given a reason for why you're doing what you're doing, which is honesty
