Fact of the Matter: 10 Things You Didn't Know About Facts

Fact of the Matter
 Fact of the Matter: 10 Things You Didn't Know About Facts


Hoalah - We’ve all been there, right? You’re talking to your spouse about something you need or want, and your spouse just doesn’t hear you at all! It’s almost as if they completely tune out what you are saying, and then jump in to give their opinion without even listening to yours first. As a matter of fact, it can be downright infuriating to deal with this in the moment, especially if it has happened repeatedly over time.


1) How many facts are there?

Fact of the matter is that there are only so many things in the world we can do at one time. We're all human, which means we're limited by how much time and energy we have. One way or another, your spouse needs to acknowledge this fact before they can really change their behavior. Whether they need you to be more specific with what you want them to do or say, or if they just need you to stand up for yourself in order to get their attention...they need something from you first in order for them to listen.


2) Truths vs. lies

The truth hurts. Everybody lies. It's just how it is. The popular beliefs.

Fact of the matter is, most people don't lie all the time and there are many things that can help you get your spouse to actually listen to you.


3) What’s the difference between opinion and knowledge?

The fact of the matter is, people will often do things they don't want because they know you'll nag. If your spouse doesn't want to do their share, but constantly does it anyways, you may be trying too hard. Instead, watch what they do instead of what they say. If they have an overly responsible attitude in other parts of their life and refuse to take the blame when they get themselves into trouble with you, then you're on the right track. This kind of inconsistency signals that something might be wrong - that you need to question them further about where this person is coming from.

# Fact: humans are stubborn creatures and doing what we should sometimes isn't as easy as it should be!


4) When were facts invented?

What is the fact of the matter? This simple question can often lead to debates and disagreements, but there are plenty of things that we can all agree on as facts. For example, everybody knows that water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit and freezes at 32 degrees. Likewise, we all know that 6 times 8 equals 48. These facts don't really need much more justification than that they are just facts!

I wonder where people would be without these facts - math and science would both be so difficult without them! As it turns out, scientists also contribute many important facts in our everyday lives as well. One famous example was John F. Kennedy's visit to Berlin which led to him speaking about one small part or segment of this building called The Wall which separated East and West Berlin.


5) What makes something true?

The fact of the matter is that you can't expect your spouse to listen if you're not listening in return. What's more, if you're not listening, and assuming the other person is at fault for everything, then it's only natural for them to respond in kind. So what are some ways in which you can make sure that your spouse actually listens? First and foremost, be willing to admit when you're wrong. It's also important that you don't just assume they know what they did wrong; instead ask them how they feel about it or how they would have liked things done differently.


6) One step further from truth – alternative facts

In order to get your spouse to actually listen, you will need to confront them with the fact of the matter. They might not like it, but that is why this conversation needs to happen. It does not seem like he has been listening for some time now and you need for him to understand how important this issue is. If he wants more from this relationship, then he will have listen as a matter of fact and make some changes in his life.


7) Who decides what is true?

Society decides what is true. The truth is whatever people believe it to be and facts are the evidence that back up those beliefs. So, when someone does not want to face the truth about something, their instinct is often to distract themselves or ignore it completely. Society will always have an opinion on what the fact of the matter is and we can choose how we want those opinions reflected in our own lives by making informed decisions and following our own morals and values instead of letting other people dictate how we should act in certain situations.


8) Consequences of believing in alternative facts

We were all shocked last November when President Trump was elected. What was most shocking, for me at least, is how many people believe in alternative facts. Some feel like fact is irrelevant because their beliefs or feelings are enough evidence. How can you talk to someone who's just not willing to listen? This blog post shares five ways you might be able to change their mind by simply stating the fact of the matter in your own words. 

1. I felt like my ideas were invalidated and ridiculed.

2. My opinion doesn't have validity anymore. 

3. I'm starting to lose faith in society. 

4. You're giving credence and credibility away from factual information.


9) Alternative facts or fake news – what do they have in common?

It's like they don't hear you. They just tune you out and go on with their day. How do you get your spouse or significant other to actually listen to you? 

The fact of the matter is, it's not easy. But there are some things that can help


10) What should we believe if we don’t know what to believe?

What we should believe is the fact of the matter, not what people tell us. People’s thoughts and ideas are just that - thoughts and ideas. What matters is that they're not true because nobody can know what's true until they're actually confronted with it. For example, let's say your husband tells you he needs some space from you, but deep down you suspect he's been cheating on you for weeks now. If he were asked this question about cheating on his wife: Is there any chance you've cheated? And he said no, which would be a lie.
