Have you ever noticed when people say, "I hate drama" that their lives seem oddly ... full of drama?
People often unconsciously reveal an issue they actually struggle with - and you can save yourself a lot of time and confusion when you understand that.
For example, someone who is trustworthy doesn't say "You can trust me." They just act trustworthy. The people I trust most in my life have never once uttered the words "You can trust me!"
Here's a free, handy, Pocket Decoder:
- "It's not about the money." It's about the money.
- "I hate drama." I'm a drama-magnet.
- "You can trust me." You can't trust me for minute.
- "I'm not sexist/racist/homophobic, etc. but..." I have issues and here they come.
