What are you more likely to say to other person if those two are opposite of each other in some situation?
What do you want to hear from others in a hard times?
I know that question is very general, so people can put it in a context they feel it is right for them, but idea is not to talk just about touchy/feely things here. The idea is to talk about differences of truth/feels good in general.
I don't have any big dilemmas I am just curious since I am totally on the "truth side" of the spectrum.(and people have problem with it)
Probably T/F will play a role in this thrad.
I really think it depends on the situation. It's not always going to be either/or that you apply to all situations. Sometimes truth is more appropriate, sometimes compassion is more appropriate. Are they ever really in complete conflict with each other though? I really need some examples illustrated for me...
But for me, if I imagine it, in hard times, what good is 'truth' going to do me? Give me some compassion. Hard times usually means I already know the truth, or no one wants to tell the truth anyway, so it isn't really an option.
