If you've ever played the game of Chinese Whispers, you know how stories change as they are shared. But it's even more complicated than that; we even tell ourselves one version of a story, then alter it as we recount it to other people. It makes it hard to know where to look when we're seeking to find the truth. That's why it's important to remember that no statement is ever absolute and no evaluation ever completely subjective. You need to rely on your instincts if you want to form a clear picture.
