    I posted always because no news has put me over the edge yet and i think i handle bad news very well, usually with controlled emotion. [face_peace]

    I'm a strong believer in the idea that truth is determined purely by perspective, so I'm not sure how to answer this question.

    Most of the time. Actually, "always," but there are times when I'd prefer not to know, if knowing is annoying/scary/insulting without giving me an opportunity to do anything about it.

    I picked always because eventually you just get use to it. Sometimes, it's most difficult, but it's there nevertheless. *shrug*

    So far, yes. However I suspect the long-term answer will be 'sometimes', so I picked that.

    Truth is a phrase that is thrown around too lightly these days,

    truth /truθ/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[trooth] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation,
    ?noun, plural truths /truðz, truθs/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[troothz, trooths] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation. 1. the true or actual state of a matter: He tried to find out the truth.
    2. conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement.
    3. a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like: mathematical truths.
    4. the state or character of being true.
    5. actuality or actual existence.
    6. an obvious or accepted fact; truism; platitude.
    7. honesty; integrity; truthfulness.
    8. (often initial capital letter) ideal or fundamental reality apart from and transcending perceived experience: the basic truths of life.
    9. agreement with a standard or original.
    10. accuracy, as of position or adjustment.
    11. Archaic. fidelity or constancy.
    ?Idiom12. in truth, in reality; in fact; actually: In truth, moral decay hastened the decline of the Roman Empire.


    I am of the opinion that many matter are subjective and should not be designated as the truth. Many people are simple mind individuals who like to think of things as black and white and right and wrong, so as it is with people using the words truth and fact around too lightly!
