ANGRY = TRUTH? Hardly to believe.

Anger = truth? Hardly to believe. There is a saying “Listen to people when they are angry, because that is when the real truth comes out”

Something came up and I was blamed for it. Someone was very angry because of it. I was trying to hold on and just accept everything without one single word coming out of my mouth with anger. At that time I thought, “Just let this person pull out what this person wants to say, let this person spill it all, so this person feels better”. So, I was only standing there did nothing, swallow everything that he or she was saying to me. It was fine at the beginning until these two words came out “you are definitely a loser, definitely a coward.” And that was the moment I felt scrambled. I have never imagined that it would come out of that person’s mouth itself.

ANGRY = TRUTH? Hardly to believe.

I had faced many circumstances that brought me to believe that I was a coward or even a loser until I finally met the person that said I was not and I am not. Through those words and convinces, all these years, so I also tried hard to convince myself that I was not and I am not a loser or even a coward. I even established the confident inside me through many hard and difficult experiences that finally made me strong enough to lift up my head believing I am not a coward or a loser.

I was there standing while trying hard to not look shocked, but I was definitely scrambled, those words were running through my head over and over. Being able to hear it over and over, so I went into my room, took a seat, tried to not believe what I just heard while back and my tears started pouring I couldn’t stop them. If I heard those words from another person probably it wouldn’t be like that, but it came out from the person who always said I was not a coward or a loser and somehow I felt like the truth had been spoken. The truth that the person tried to hide from me for so long. This question suddenly came to me “so is this the truth? I am definitely a loser?” And after that I cried no matter, I think about it, I just don’t believe it.

It was about a couple of days I kept thinking about it, until a few days after, someone sent a text to me saying “Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you”. I’d never known that these words were coming from the bible if I never read the bible, the message’s version. It definitely released everything inside me and open my eyes and my heart to see everything clearly not only about the words, but also about the person who spoke the truth. Truth hurts, but someone had to say it. Your life is what you make of it and the only person who can help you is yourself. If you are ready to take personal responsibility and improve your life, then hear the truth.

In a fight situation a person might be inclined to tell a little lie to get the situation calmed down enough for them to leave or get out-of-the-way of someone’s wrath. How people look is subjective; day-to-day people change and their looks change too, so what someone liked yesterday they might not like today, and if they liked today they might not like tomorrow and there’s also people out there that enjoy arguments and think they should be and are a part of a relationship (not so for everyone) so to keep an argument going they might not be so honest because they are trying to fulfill their hope to continue the excitement.

So do when people are angry, their true persona will usually come out more severely than when they are in a calm state. We have to look at the history of the person being questioned. If the person in question is someone who is generally someone who can be trusted and has been always been known to tell the truth, when angry they will generally tell the truth about everything.

The Musings

The truth may be hurting some people involved, but the anger has sparked a nerve, which is sort of their revenge, or their emphasis that only the truth is best.

On the other hand, if the person in question is someone who is known for being dishonest or not being capable of telling the truth, then anger will only spark their tendency to lie even more or tell even bigger lies. This is their revenge on those who have made them angry or by those who they feel have done them wrong. They will go to any extent of lying or dishonesty to feel they are making the situation even.

The reality is I am a loser, that’s right, but the truth is I am precious in God’s view. The loser or the coward who is finding or realizing their cowardice is the most honest person that is why they are precious. Nobody is perfect, not any single one yet, but we are heading to perfectness inside God.

    anger does not equal truth. Now the truth might make me angry but they are not synonymous.
