That said, I do think "Truth" is a touchy subject for some here -- especially those who have had "Truth" preached AT them. I didn't have that experience, so I don't know what it's like to have to grapple with that. In fact, I've had the opposite experience: I've preached MY Truth to others, especially my family. As a result, many in my family thought thoughts they had never thought before. They did so out of Love, but they recognized that I was speaking to them out of Truth.
I remember especially telling my mother once -- a woman I love deeply and forever: if you make me choose between you and my boyfriend, you will lose. I didn't say this out of Love; I said it out of Truth.
And...you know what? It worked out ok. Way, way better than ok.
