The Point of Truth

The Point of Truth


I saw a post on facebook today that was scripted by my older brother Joey. It said "What is the point of truth?" while at first glance my older brother might not seem like the philosophical type, he truly does have his moments. Where he asks utterly profound questions. What is the point of truth when people seem to blatantly disregard the factor of trust that it inspires between humans and the connection that it can forge. Now I have told lies in the past, and most likely in the future, But WHY? Why do we ignore the the honesty that can bring us together and can create new friendships? I'm not proud of my self for lying, but why do we do it? And even worse, why do we lie to ourselves? Is it a fear of showing the others who we truly are, or is it that we can't face our true personalty. Is it shame of who we are and how we act? What is it that cause us the inescapable need to twist reality till we see what we like? Why?
