I say things some times that I get credit for be it good, bad or indifferent. I have conversations with many folks, receive information from many sources and know more about some things that I don’t say. I say some things because I don’t care about how folks receive it especially if it is the truth. You see some folks are afraid to say what they really mean publicly because they are afraid of how family, friends and others are going to take them. Well I don’t give a damn about how folks take me as long as we are dealing with the truth. Okay if and when it ain’t truth, then challenge me on it and then if you are right, I will get it right.
We in the black community are so damn scared of the truth that we are sick. Damn there is an old saying the truth hurts. But damn when the truth hurts, folks want to change the truth or say it ain’t the right time or place. Hell who gets to choose when it is the right time or right place? Damn the truth is the truth at all times. We can put a twist on the truth but damn it does not change the truth.
As I get older and wiser, I am having a real problem with the truth being twisted to serve some folks fantasy. Well I stop by to tell you that until you receive the truth as the truth, then you are untrue to yourself. Hell yeah the truth hurts but damn get the hell over it and move on. Meditate on that! Now what changed? Either you continue in accepting the truth or you continue in denial or the I just don’t give a damn mode. It is up to you, but for me I will take the truth at face value, anytime and anywhere. Nope haven’t always been that way but the older I get the wiser I get and I feel much better at the end of the day.
I take sides with the truth and not people, people change but the truth stays the same always and forever!
"Ah yes, truth. Funny how everyone is always asking for it but when they get it they don’t believe it because it’s not the truth they want to hear.": Helena Cassadine
Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth: Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi
Without seeking, truth cannot be known at all. It can neither be declared from pulpits, nor set down in articles, nor in any wise prepared and sold in packages ready for use. Truth must be ground for every man by itself out of it such, with such help as he can get, indeed, but not without stern labor of his own: John Ruskin
The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear: Herbert Sebastien Agar
"When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do." William Blake
We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth… For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it: Patrick Henry
