Truth vs Lies
Updated: Oct 25, 2019
Truth. Some of us learn that telling the truth is always the best way to be in life. And I’m not talking about the odd ‘kind’ lie, like replying “no - not at all” to your friend who asked “does my bum look big in this?”
I was always taught to tell the truth. No matter what.
It was no different at a certain court case that I was party to a couple of year’s ago. But because I am gagged, I can only ‘talk around’ the subject instead of screaming it from the rooftops, like I wish I could do. So because I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, I naively thought that the judge would see the truth. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
“He’ll see that me and my family are honest people.”
In fact what happened was every honest parent’s worst nightmare. Being up against an expert liar and chief manipulator is difficult though, when in the family court arena. What I now know is that telling the truth doesn’t count for anything in the ‘family justice’ system in this country. Not one bit.
In fact you are penalised for ‘believing’ your child. And what’s more if you present evidence in accordance to what a child told you, and what you since found out to be 100% true with scientific evidence to back it up, then you can be severely punished by the judge saying that ‘you’ were indeed the one who ‘did this’ to your child.
Having yours and your children’s worlds completely turned upside down for telling the truth is a bitter pill to swallow. And what’s more, if you then obtain further evidence to show that you indeed DID NOT do what they accused you of, then you will be further penalised. How dare you try to prove yourself innocent! Accept the findings, even if it means lying. We don’t care!
How could you ‘accept’ that you did something that someone else did? Something that you didn’t even know went on. Something that you didn’t even know that some people did to children.
What a topsy turvy inverted system. The place where good is evil and evil is good.
Being a hopeless optimist though I do know that the truth will win. And liars will be exposed.
The truth does have a way of coming out. I just hope that it will be soon.
Brace yourself. For when it does, it will be massive.
“Truthful words stand the test of time,
But lies are soon exposed.”
