Share Your Opinion: Truth

Do you feel comfortable speaking your truth in any situation?

If I am uncomfortable speaking my truth in every situation, it is more about fearing the reprisals and reactions from others. The truth always comes out even if we don't use words.
—Rhonda

Ironically, those voting "no" are probably practicing satya moreso that those voting "yes".
—Brynn

I chose undecided instead of Yes...
As I have a few situations in my life were people make it quite clear that they are not interested in my opinion or have any intention of accepting it as simply my truth. My truth actualy is a source of discomfort for them.
—Cathy

"Your truth" may really be your opinion or you may not understand the situation enough to know "your truth" or "the truth" unless your are enlightened. Unfortunately many people can't resist commenting even when it is hurtful or speaking out as if they are the only ones who know the truth. They want to speak their truth, but they don't want you to speak your truth. If you do, they perceive you as ignorant or conservative, as if we aren't also intelligent with our truths. I prefer not to engage in deep conversations with extremists on either side right or left as they come across as big know it all.

We are daily challenged to tell our truth or the truth. I find that when I respond with these words, "You may be right," there is a receptivity for me to speak.

Kanan Vihari Jaswal

I find telling the truth so easy, so liberating that I do it all the time. And when I find myself exaggerating the things, immediately thereafter I make it a point to re-state without even a trace of exaggeration this time. Sometimes my interlocutors do not understand my motives in doing so but I do believe with all sincerity at my command that truth itself is powerful and does not need any props.
