Truth Is…

Why I’ll never do a “Truth is…”

I don’t know how many of you play the game “Truth is…” on Facebook, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, someone puts the phrase “Truth is…” on their status, then if you “like” it, they have to post what they really think about you on your wall…

This game saddens me.

Do we really live in a society where people don’t know how we feel about them, what we think about them, what they mean to us? Think about it. If we were really effective at communicating with those around us, you should never need to “like” someone’s status to find out what they think of you…

And the irony of the game too. I’ve seen people who I know don’t like each other say the nicest things about the other person with “Truth is” but I know from talking to them that they don’t like each other at all, and think that person is the most despicable person on the planet… So really, they aren’t being honest with their “truth is” anyway… I’m not saying that they should say bad things about the person, but more go with the principle of “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”…

Maybe it’s time we play a little ‘Truth is” in real life… Maybe it’s time we start telling people how much they really mean to us in person… Imagine what our society could look like if we really knew how important we were to those around us, how much they cared for us, and how much we cared for them…
