Any criminal attorney acknowledges and probably counts on the fact that two people viewing the same situation can come away with very different descriptions of the “truth” as they experienced it. Relationships are helped when together people seek the truth of the matter. That calls for a suspension of prejudicial points of view.
- Truth creates a new beginning.
- Truth is foundational and can be built on.
- Truth can be trusted when both parties embrace it.
Truth as one sees it is important to express because there is a real possibility that the other person sees things differently, which can become a source of agitation.
