But please, please talk to me about these things.. Don't just go around spreading rumors and what not. At least let me know what the story is, and perhaps be kind enough to allow me to speak my mind, let you know what my perspective is. Because there is always more than one perspective in a situation, not just one, simple truth. People are emotional creatures, and as such, information is delicate. If you weren't there, and someone tells you what happened, come to me and ask me about it. Don't just assume one side of the story is right. Because in most cases, neither side is right. In any given situation, there is one person's truth, the other person's truth, and the truth, which is much harder to come by.
Perspectives change everything. Seek the truth, not just the appearance.
