MY THOUGHTS ON THE SUBJECT ARE AS FOLLOWS

My truth. My life.

Truth

This is my first time on Trifecta:  I am really starting to enjoy these challenges.

Robert Frost one said, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned
about life: it goes on.”  We want you to do the same.  Sum up anything you want,
but do it in three words.  Your response should mirror Frost’s quote by
beginning, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about–.”  And
the last four words are yours to choose.

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about truth – It frees you

  1. There’s nothing like realizing a truth of life for the first time–it’s absolutely freeing, to the mind and soul. Nice! And welcome to Trifecta!

  2. Yes. The opposite is true. Lack of truth is debilitating. Welcome to Trifecta, although I’m sort of a new guy too! 🙂

  3. This is a fantastic start! Well done and welcome!

  4. welcome to the challenge!

    and, yes . . . freeing. 🙂

  5. Ah so true, although the truth can also incarcerate you if you admit to doing something illegal LOL! Great job!

  6. Nothing could be more true than this…

  7. I watched your three words in motion just last night. My kids accidentally broke something at my brother’s house, fretted crazily about it and finally did the right thing by going right to him and facing the music. I could actually see them physically relaxing as they came clean. Well written.

  8. Oh yes, you are absolutely right. Great response!

  9. Amazing but true, truth frees where as lies bind.

  10. Welcome to Trifecta!

    This is so true. (Makes me wonder why politicians don’t try it more :))

  11. Absolutely true.

    It definitely does. This is lovely. Thanks for joining us this weekend. I hope we’ll see you back soon.

  13. so true. 🙂
    This post also got me thinking. Here is what I thought of…

    “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about dreams– it is limitless.”

    Love the blog. Keep up the good work 😀

  14. In school, I studied a play called The Shoehorn Sonata. It was pretty good… And at one point, she tackled this idea of truth. The two main characters, old women who were victims of Japanese concentration camps in WWII, had a moment when a secret that one had kept for all those years came out…

    When one of them was sick, the other one went and begged the Japanese for the medicine to make her well. She offered “anything”, and the men raped her in return for it. She never told the other one, and the secret pulled them apart… until the events of the play.

    My teacher argued that sometimes, in cases like this, the truth sets you free. And it certainly does, I believe. But equally, she argued, the truth can have the opposite effect in certain situations. The difficulty is gouging the situation. I think she also said that perhaps that was the reason she kept it secret all those years, in her head.
