Is it just too much to expect people to tell the truth?
This is such an interesting question. I believe that there is a very clear distinction to be made between our own individual truths and “the truth”. Our own individual truths are continually changing and are most often identified by ourselves through the connection to ourselves where we become open to engaging in an ongoing process of exploration and re-evaluation. What may resonate with someone in one moment may not in another. “The Truth” is based upon a moral code that has been interpreted and imposed upon us by our society. We call these truths facts. When I am interested in finding out about another’s truth I ask them to tell me their truth and not “the truth”.
