Truth Bomb

What does truth bomb mean?

A surprising but true statement

A truth bomb is a statement made that might seem shocking to the recipient but is the truth. It feels like a bomb because the victim, aka the one who needs to hear the truth, is unsuspecting of it and is usually left disoriented.

Truth bombs can lead to disaster depending on the truth they reveal and how the recipient takes it. These bombs become necessary when a person or people are stubborn and not willing to acknowledge an issue or problem. It leads to the popular saying "truth hurts."
