Three Sides (At Least) To Every Story

I liked this saying:

There are at least three sides to every story:

Yours
Mine
And the truth


Everyone sees the world through their personal filter. 


And they present their side of things in a distorted way to make themselves look right and righteous. 


Calls it what you will:  a slant, bias, twist, falsification, or a distortion or perversion of the truth. 


Sure, sometimes one person is right and the other is clearly wrong. 


But more often than not, there are elements of truth and of lies in each person’s story to greater and lessor degrees. 


Hence, the truth often is it’s own entity and exists independent of those presenting it. 


It’s not a bad mission to seek out and promote the truth in this world of many falsehoods. 😉
