My Opinion About The Truth

There is no real truth (Okay, maybe enlightened people see things how they really are). There are only words.

Opinions.

Opinions are the truths of other people. They create their own truth out of their way of thinking. And their way of thinking comes from their experience and their view on how they think things SHOULD be.

So, if someone tells you something, be it about you as a person, or about your draft… realize that it’s just words. Letters strung together. A bunch of strange sounds that you don’t have to give any meaning at all.

These words make sense in THEIR world. Not necessarily in yours. They may in fact have nothing at all to do with your world.

They may. But they may not.

Your book might be absolutely brilliant, but just not for them. So they apply a different standard to it.

How do you find your own truth?
