To define by dictionary is a conformity with fact or reality, a verified or indisputable fact. To each individual, the truth hold different meaning and varies in theory and values. To some it is the most important thing the world. To others, they have yet to learn the values of being truthful.
Truth to me reflects the person you are and the person you choose to be in life. If you choose to be a truthful person, then you earn not only the trust from those around you but their respect as well. If you choose to be someone who doesn’t tell the truth, no one will respect you or believe anything you say. Truth also opens the door to many other characteristics that are very important to have to obtain through life. Truth may be a small word but I believe that the truth is a very important quality for everyone to have not only for others but for themselves.
You have to obtain truth within yourself before you can share it with those around you. If you
tell the truth you will have lots of friends. No one wants to be around someone that is not truthful.
Always tell the truth.

Truth is a vital trait to have as a person. It determines your character. If you don’t tell the truth no one will believe what you say, you won’t have any friends and you will get into more trouble.
Not telling the truth will cause people to never believe what you say. If you’ve ever read the story “The boy who cried wolf” you will understand what I mean. It is very important to always tell the truth. People want friends that are truthful. When you don’t tell the truth, your friends will not want to be around you. To be a true friend, you should always tell the truth.
When you get in trouble, don’t lie to try to get out of it. One lie does not make another lie go away. If you do something wrong, always tell the truth about it. Telling the truth tells a lot about your character and your personality. When you are truthful your friends and family will consider you trustworthy. The truth will set you free.
