self-convincing argument

as I sit down to write this, I have no idea where this is going to lead.

but here’s my thought:

if you really have to convince others of the credibility, importance, relevancy and truth of something – is it actually as credible, important, relevant and truthful as you make it out to be?

well, is it?

because, if it was actually all these things you are trying so desperately to communicate, wouldn’t that just be apparent? wouldn’t these things be evident solely because they are?

or, are you just talking so much, you’re hoping one day you’ll actually believe what you’re saying?

…but then again, I’m the one writing, aren’t I?

eat this

drink that

buy this

believe that.
