    I’d say the bigger problem isn’t excessive truth, it’s half-truths accompanied by lies and manipulation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Couldn’t agree more Silk Cords

    Half truths or half lies,are ingrained in the humans.
    The word TRUTH is surviving because we have the word LIE.

    Lie is more popular than truth,because it’s highly convenient.

    Sad is the fact that people have forgotten the word ‘truth’
