    With the internet we now all have the opportunity to air our concerns and emotions on forums, many of these forums are public so we all need to be careful not share too much personal details that would reveal our identity , so we all tweak the facts , different names, dates and locations, that sort of thing. But, the emotional essence and important facts supporting the emotions are accurate to provide context for the reader.

    Recently I was on a public forum and shared details of a long running emotional struggle as I value insights and suggestions from others. One participant reading my posts discovered some inconsistencies in my many updates and replies , issues with date sequencing mostly. This led this participant to accuse me of being a lier, writing this in very strong terms.

    My question now is when is the truth a lie,  how far do you have to go in protecting you identity on a public forum before your truth becomes a lie. What’s are acceptable identity protecting tactics and at what stage do these tactics distort the truth to the extent that your truth becomes a lie ?

    Dear Canadian Eagle,

    Sometime it is pathetic to tell the truth rather than lying. I would advice you it is impossible to force the object to move. So if that guy doesn’t agree what you had shared then it is up to him /her. Always stand at your words knowing you are telling the truth but not a skimming lie.

    Just ignore and continue with your own life. Or otherwise tell him you are right just to cut the story short.

    All the best.

    Cheer

    Thank you for your kind words, you are indeed correct when you advise to ignore negative people. If someone falsely calls you a liar, just get on with you life. Life ultimately is about attracting positive energy. Deciding how to respond is where freedom lives. Victor Frankl who wrote the book “Man’s Search for Meaning” learnt in during his time in a concentration camp that freedom resides between stimulus and response. You may have no control over the events of your life , but you have control over how you respond. Often your response is not action, but how you decide to emotionally respond.

    Have a wonderful day

    Here are a few quotes in the truth that I liked :-

    “Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.”

    <div class=”quoteDetails”><span class=”quoteAuthor”>William Faulkner</span></div>
    <div></div>
    <div>

    “Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

    <div class=”quoteDetails”><span class=”quoteAuthor”>Franz Kafka</span></div>
    </div>
    <div>

    “Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy.”

    <div class=”quoteDetails”><span class=”quoteAuthor”>Warren Wiersbe</span></div>
    </div>
    <div></div>
    <div>In the current world of billions of is words and voices , how can we know what is true. If someone does not like what you say, it is called “fake news”, if you have an untruth in your head , you can now find others on the internet to confirm your untruth .

    </div>
    <div>so when is the truth a lie, how can we sure that we truthful ?</div>

    Following the theme of truth and adjusting some fact to protest identity I was reading about the accuracy of the bible, is the bible true to factual details ? Despite years of research with Scripture in one hand and cutting-edge technology in the other, evidence backing the Bible remains elusive. That is not to say that the spirit and meaning of the bible are untruths, quite the opposite actually, but the factual details of every parable often don’t pass a rigours fact based truth test.
