But what if every person speaking intends to tell the truth, but you still have different stories, different perspectives? You get real life. But do you get anything close to truth?
I suppose it depends on what truth you are seeking. Are you seeking the truth of what happened? Emotional truth? Relational truth? Or, if given an introspective mindset, can we discover something about the nature of truth itself? That it is dependent on perspective, on relationship, on context, on narrative arc? That multiple truths can exist in the same story, in the same overall truth and still have meaning?
For me, the truth is, that truth is found in the differing perspectives. The way of telling is the truth that lies behind the facts.
