Truth vs. “My Truth”

Whenever I hear someone speak or write in terms of “my truth” or “your truth,” I immediately recognize that truth is not their thing. Opinion is.

Truth is simply there. It is not owned by me or by you. We either submit to truth, or we delude ourselves into imagining that whatever opinion or preference we hold is legitimate, is valid, is “truth.”

Usually, in fact, almost always, the words “my truth” or “your truth” are a synonym for ill-informed opinion.
