DAY 211 (Deception...)

Sometimes .. all you want is to be an anonymous. Because if people know you, they know you too much. And that gives them a lot of freedom of being deceptive and then defending themselves for not being a liar. Deception is just another form of lying is what I feel. Either you say the full truth or lie. There is nothing like "half truth" or "I didn't lie, I just didn't say the truth", etc.

I am reading the Shiva trilogy these days, and it is quoted in the 3rd volume-
"There is your truth and there is my truth. As for the universal truth, it does not exist."

Simply said but magnificently revealed. The problem lies when in "your truth"  you try to mix it with other's version of truth and create a cocktail. In a way, you will prove that you didn't lie and thus you are not at fault. But I am too idealistic to fall into that.

Life tests you everyday. And there is no correct answer to any of its questions. It is only the honesty of answers which decides how your life is gonna be. You need not remember the versions of truth and you need not hold anything back. No one can "expose" you ever. You are who you are. You are neither right nor wrong. But you stand your ground well.

The sad part is that this is a rare trait and those who can't do it are in the majority and there are fewer chances of proving something against a majority.

  1. Yes,it is a rare trait nowadays to be "straight"....in other words "call a spade a spade" and people beat around the bush not wanting to be forthcoming.But,speaking the truth is always the best path and most advisable.One must however have the guts to stand up for one's views and convictions.
