The Truth and Facts

Fact:  A thing that is known or proved to be true. The truth about events as opposed to interpretation.

 

Truth: the true or actual state of a matter, conformity with fact or reality; agreement with a standard or original.

Some food for thought. How do my “facts” fit this definition. Can I prove my facts to be true? Am I using critical thinking skills? How am I helping others when my facts are really just an emotional interpretation of events? Do my facts back up my emotions or am I just emotional based on a false reality or a misinterpretation? Do I reject the facts because it does not align with how I feel emotionally about a situation? Am I committed to the truth?
These are some questions I feel like I need to dwell on for myself. Traveling will make you become a philosopher. Boundaries are stretched and knowledge is expanded with new facts. These new facts, in turn, lead to discovering more truth and dispelling myths.
It never hurts to do this while drinking a nice big glass of sweet tea and enjoying the beautiful scenery around you.
