How do I make you believe something? By telling you the truth. Bullshit leaves a terrible stain, in breeds uncertainty not just in the other person, but also in you.
There is a story in the bible when Jesus meet a young man called Nathanael. Essentially he looks at Nathanael, right at him, right through him and says… “Here is a man about who nothing is false.”
Oh how I long to have the same thing said of me. You don’t need to shout, coerce, control or manipulate when what you are saying is simply… true.
