Things You Shouldn't Be Told
If someone has to tell you that you are empowerd, you are probably powerless.
If someone has to let you know that you are free, you probably are not.
If someone has to inform you that you are safe, you are likely in danger.
When someone has to insist that you can trust them, you probably can't.
There are things we should just know. When someone is emphatically telling you something that should be obvious, exercise some caution and analyze the statement. This is especially helpful in dealing with politicians, teachers, corporate bosses or anyone trying to sell you something.
