    I'm not human


    Always the truth, or at least the sarcastic opposite

    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.

    Truth as in I refuse to run senerios that do not exist for the sake of making someone feel better in their denial.


    But I should also say that real "truth" I do not carelessly define.



    I knew you would... see, I was being both truthful AND compassionate there

    Genius, I should learn that

    Truth in whatever way it can be conveyed.
