Consequences ... authorities aren't always for your best interests
Most people can't handle the truth.
I've been wondering that myself
only when you can't get the story straight
It requires guts . Most of them don't have it :)
I like to speak the truth, so I don't care on how the lairs receive it...
Because they don't want the truth out and many don't really want to hear the truth as it can be very painful at times.
Because they don't want to hear it.....
It's hard to say the truth only because you've made it hard in your mind. I say speak the truth and let the chips fall where they may. In the short run, you may offend some people and make few enemies, but in the long run people will respect and admire you that much more.
Because we feel so inferior, and want everyone's approval. I have lived behind masks al my life and it isn't until this year, I have decided, I am done with masks. No more lies.
There are two major kinds of liars......self serving liars and dubious politicians. How you can be truthful depends on your own moral decisions.
The only time I find it hard to say the truth is when I know that knowledge will hurt the person either emotionally or lead to them being hurt physically. Otherwise, I am usually too blunt for some people's taste. It doesn't make it harder for me to do, just harder to be accepted into certain social groups.
Truth is selective
Becasue the bigger the lie the more people will believe it.
I unashamedly tell the truth, I have been discriminated for it.
Because when the liars don't listen, it feels like their disregard of the truth weakens the truth. But it doesn't, that's just a social illusion.
You worry what others think. I don't, that is why I cut others with truth and why I'm unpopular. It's okay, they bleed so theatrically.
But someone has to.
You CAN speak the truth. Maybe say it in a gentle manner? But methinks that if you think the person next to you is a liar, what's the point? (and isn't it a waste of positive energy to let a liar know that he/she is wrong???)
I'd add: before you speak that truth, imagine you were on the receiving end.
