What are some dilemmas that you face while trying to be Truthful? Can you share an example?
Making people understand your perspective and not hurting them in the process
While being truthful the biggest dilemma I face is making people understand my perspective and making them understand where I am coming from. Also the non comments on important truth create qualms for inner peace.
At times I don’t feel comfortable to be truthful with the close circles because it might hurt them. Also, people take advantage of being truthful.
The biggest dilemma is of saying the truth to my parents and elders. They have spent a lifetime trying to build reputation and they feel tremendoudly hurt when there’s a chance it will be damaged. And I don’t know what will and what won’t.
Being truthful while I want to avoid certain social situations which I am invited to is an area I sometimes feel difficult to be honest about. Another situation is when I do not want to talk about my feelings when asked if they are going to hurt my reputation or social standing
The biggest dilemma I face is when I think being truthful might hurt someone else in the process. The decision can then sway from one side to another. A simple example that I often face is while confronting a family member or elders. This can make them feel bad, and hence I hesitate to be truthful.
