Pretentious substitute for "non-negotiable personal opinion."

Often used by academics, this is a convenient phrase for avoiding arguments because people can contradict your opinion but not your "truth."

The phrase is often used when seeking to justify a controversial personal stance or action because people are not allowed to argue with "your truth."

Sharon: You are so brave! I'm so proud of you for being true to yourself ! Stay strong, sister!"
