  • I would want them to understand that "truth" looks different to everyone and there are very few things in life that are an "absolute truth"- If I were to confront someone I would make sure it comes from a good place and its about them, not my needs or what I view as truth.

  • That depends, are you talking about subjective "truth" or telling someone their breath smells?

  • Probably the way I described about- I do not believe there are too many absolute truths that need to be explained to someone-
    Since you posted this in R&B I am assuming you are talking about religious truths-which I find to be personal truths, not subjective or absolute- what seems to be an absolute truth to one in religion is not always such- religion is so personal that what is truth to me is not truth to another-KWIM?

    Well, you should tread lightly when speaking with someone-because the above shows you are a bit conflicted- maybe get to a place where you can say "truth is absolute for me" before the discussion?

  • What kind of truth are you looking to share with somebody, and why? I can't really give a blanket answer for this question, it would vary according to circumstances.
