I do not believe in my truth and I do not believe in your truth.

Light Blue fading from darker blue on the bottom to lighter blue on the top of a long square graphic. On the bottom half of the image is half of the FSG logo as a large watermark faded into the blue background. In the upper middle section is Fish stewarding Group logo on the left side and to the right the words in white lettering that reads FSG Messaging and Optics Strategist. Beneath those words in a larger font, it reads Loren Weisman. Centered under the FSG logo and the Loren Weisman text, it reads Fish Stewarding Group, then an asterisk followed by FSG Messaging and Optics, then another asterisk followed by the words FSG Development. Then beneath the sites is a thick rectangular border. Inside the border is the text that reads: I do not believe in my truth and I do not believe in your truth.

I do not believe in my truth and I do not believe in your truth. An FSG messaging and optics strategist Loren Weisman quote and blog about the difference between facts and opinions.

A quote graphic with a lake to the left side and a brown dirt embankment leading down to it with trees and sky in the background and a blue circle in the center with a white border around it with quote text that reads I do not believe in my truth and I do not believe in your truth. I believe in the truth.
“I believe in the truth.”

So, I do not believe in my truth…

And, I have an issue with the idea of how some will move an opinion to a fact. Even if it is not an objective fact. To me, it seems like stating an opinion or a belief can allow for more conversations and better discussions, instead of just claiming that it is my truth.

And in buying in to that or forcing a truth that may just be a strong opinion, it might be good to ask yourself.. “are you trying to control and guide truth or are you allowing truth to control and guide you?

An image of a white billboard with a blue and cloudy sky behind it. In the lower right corner is a watermark of the Fish Stewarding Group logo. On the billboard it reads Are you trying to control and guide truth or are you allowing truth to control and guide you? Under the quote it reads, Loren Weisman.
Are you trying to control and guide truth or are you allowing truth to control and guide you?

There is fact and there is opinion. 

Just because you believe in something so much and wish it was true, does not make it true. And if I return in a conversation saying I am prepared to respect your opinion, but it is shoved back in my face that it is a truth, makes it a great challenge to have any kind of conversation that can go anyone respectful.

This applies to awards as well. So many get wrapped up in who is the best over understanding, that it completely subjective. Awards are subjective and popular opinions … and in some cases based on popularity or in other cases, just bought.

A quote graphic of a ceiling with wood beams. In upper center is a blue circle with and FSG logo watermark and a quote in white text that is credited to Loren Weisman in a small font on the bottom and in the center reads, “The foundation of your messaging is framed by your words, your story and your actions. Consider making them strong, true, authentic and yours.”
“The foundation of your messaging is framed by your words, your story and your actions. Consider making them strong, true, authentic and yours. So consider solidifying that foundation.”

Subjective or objective?

Sharing your opinion and stating why it is your opinion, why you feel strong about it, why it is important to you and why you believe it is worlds better creates a more inviting conversation than contradicting people and saying it is a fact. This also ties into respecting a different view as well.

We have enough trouble with conversations and communication these days. It might make for better connections and discussions if we can come from a humble place where we clearly differentiate facts and opinions, while keeping the word truth for things that are true.

“I do not believe in my truth and I do not believe in your truth. I believe in the truth.”

So, Consider clarifying the difference between fact and opinion. It may help your reputation and your opinions to be seen in a stronger light.
