I’m sure that most people have heard the saying “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” It’s been attributed to many people, including Malcolm X and Ginger Rogers. I’m pretty sure that it’s been in songs by various artists, such as Public Enemy, John Mellencamp, Van Zant.
Personally, I do not think that I fall for anything. Sometimes people tell such believable stories that I end up falling for it. I am still learning to take everything people say with a grain of salt. It’s also important to listen to what people are really saying. Effective listening can help to read between the lines and not fall for the tall tales.
