I recently had a family experience where there was my interpretation, my mother’s, my father’s, my brother’s, etc. It was no surprise to me, once I got past reacting and began some introspection, that everyone had their own interpretation of the situation or as I call it ‘Truth’ and none of them matched, and certainly none of them matched mine, which was distressing to say the least. I found myself defending the truth. After sleeping on it, I realized that I was defending my version of the truth.
I learned through this experience that there is no such thing as THE TRUTH.
Today’s tip is to remember that you have your truth and others in your life have theirs. The secret to successful relationships is to understand that everyone has their own interpretations which is their truth, hear their truths and find a way to either accept that you may have different truths or find a way to meet in the middle.
