Truth is truth.

“Truth isn’t truth,” he said. “My version” of the truth may not match yours – in which case our definitions or boundaries may not line up with each other. This doesn’t necessarily mean either position is untrue.

However, if two or more parties agree on the parameters of discussion, there is only one true version, regardless of anybody’s perception. There are certainly many vantage points from which to observe truth, but conflicting statements do not take away what is true.

I learned this many years ago: perception and reality (truth) are certainly not the same thing. We may change reality, but the perceptions of others are beyond our ability to alter.

Truth is truth.
