To me, truth is more important than beauty. Truth is sincerity,
character, real things, or real events. Truth can be a judgment
of someone or something told. Truth is a big part of my life.
Truth is when your friends want to tell you something that you
never knew about. Something they don't have to lie about. Something
they can tell you straight up. Truth is when you can let someone
know something that you really didn't want to tell. You are being
true to yourself when you do that. Truth can be a lot more than
between you and your friends.
Truth can also be between you and a family members. Kind of like
me and my father. Truth is when you can spend time with someone
and show you are having a good time. Truth is way more than not
lying to one another. Truth shows expressions, emotions and all
kinds of other things. You have to look between the lines of truth.
You have to look more into the meaning of truth.
Truth is also when you can show feelings about something. You
don't have to hide the way you feel. Kind of like me. I don't
hide the way I feel. Truth isn't just true feelings from you.
It's when your friends can tell you exactly how they feel about
you. They don't dodge or tell someone else.
Truth is when the people around you give you their true personality.
They don't show someone else's personality. They don't act like
the girl next door or anyone famous. They don't act like someone
they aren't. They are always themselves. Truth is when the people
around you are proud of their life and what they have. They don't
lie about things just to be like the next person.
They are true about how they live and don't try to live like another
Truth is also when you appreciate who you are and what you want
to be. You are who you are and you never try to change it. Truth
is when your family and friends could tell you anything. They
can tell if something bad or good happens. They can tell you the
truth when they don't like something and they tell you how you
can change it. They give you opinions if you need it. Truth can
be lots of things. Truth is being true to your friends, family,
Truth is when your friends are sincere and have a good character.
They act respectfully and gratefully towards you. When you do
something for them, they always say thank you. Truth is when you
act the same way to your friends. You are courteous and polite.
Truth is also when you like someone and you can show your true
feelings for them. Say if I like someone, I could tell them how
Truth can be a lot of things. It's when you don't lie or you know
your feelings or if you act like yourself. Truth is much more
than one thing. The definition of truth is complex. Truth is when
you can share things with your family just like they can. Truth
is a lot of things. Truth is very complex. Truth is a very important
part of my life.
