Don't Say It To Say It; Say It Because You Believe It
I said, "I'm sorry that happened to you." I asked if there was anything I could do. I then said 3 simple, meaningful words, "I believe you." These words came naturally. I said exactly what I felt. There was no pause. I was also in love with a beautiful, courageous and strong woman. Tamara was candid and direct when she told me about her sexual assault. Tamara pulled no punches. She expected me to say "goodbye" and leave, but instead I said, "I believe you." It actually brought me closer to her.
I believe you...3 simple words.
