Quote of the Day

there's 3 sides to every story... there's 1 side, there's the other... then there's the #truth

We are all different in many ways, but one thing that everyone has in common is this: we all want to be right. It is hard to share a story or speak on a situation without sounding biased because of the simple fact that our opinions and emotions are many times conveyed through our wording. We leave things out, add pieces in, and exaggerate what really happened. Sometimes we do it on accident, sometimes we do it on purpose. Usually we're trying to get whoever we are conversing with to agree with us. Attempting to be persuasive while at the same time holding to the truth is a complicated task, and some do it better than others.

The point of all this is to say: don't believe the first thing you here. And even when you have heard both sides, know that you will never really know the full truth, because only those present know that.
