Truer Lies

The whole truth is only a misnomer now. What we call the truth may technically only be a half-truth. Some people would be served untruths and some are worthy of truer lies. In this medley of half-truths, truer lies and guarded secrets, who can we truly trust?

Man is a social being, is he not? His friends, family and neighbors make up his society. Also now, his Facebook friends, and non-friends(😉) are important stakeholders in deciding what kind of image he has in the society.

I may be a wealthy person, but as long as it is a secret, not many people would value me for even the right reasons.

However, it is our friends and acquaintances that we lie to. Strangers don’t quite matter when it comes to secrets and personal infidelities.

The whole truth is only a misnomer now. What we call the truth may technically only be a half-truth. Some people would be served untruths and some are worthy of truer lies. This distinction is made on the basis of how trustworthy the other party is and how much we truly trust them. It is a very ambiguous equation that decides the degree of worth of that person.

A very confusing prospect in text, it is now the fact of nature. Our society does this to us, and similarly we, to it. In this medley of half-truths, truer lies and guarded secrets, who can we truly trust? Do we even have  anyone left anymore with whom we could be quite truly honest?

Because honestly, honesty is a scary thing. We have forgotten how to be spontaneously truthful, that we are caught up in a web of lies, and no man trusts another.

I would like to think our family is our true constant in this cruel, selfish world. You would hear stories about conflicts in a family; but nothing that cannot be resolved over a late night movie with a couple of bags of the family favorite potato chips! 😀

I wont say I’m bitter about the world, but a few more honest people could really light up our society. Diplomacy could be kept confined to the workplace and lies to a bare minimum, so that our kids could know a world with some true friends.
