Someone asked me yesterday — why should I believe in you? — I was left shell shocked. I didn’t know what to answer. In this virtual world, why should anyone believe anyone? And what makes someone believe in me?
After 9 months of blogging, I think I have made some good friends, people with whom I have connected with, people who have connected with me. And though it is just words, I believe that it is a genuine connection. In the real world, such a connection is easily evident, especially if there is a chance that a meeting would happen. But how do I convince someone of my genuineness when there is no chance of meeting or any further conversations?
The best way I could reply was — I asked her to trust her instincts and feel the vibes which she receives from my words and get to know me. Only time would convince strangers to become friends. Well, that didn’t convince her, methinks. Now what…? I wonder…
But this question has left a deep impact on me, I could not sleep half the night. Why should anyone believe in me? How do I convince anyone that I am genuine? How do I write a piece about me which convinces the other person to believe in me?
So I leave this post with an open ended question asking you the same and wanting the same..
Why should I believe in you? And why do you believe in me?
