Never ask someone if they're telling the truth.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Actual Advice Mallard
A dishonest person will lie to you so either way you're getting the answer YES I'M TELLING THE TRUTH.

Don’t promise when you’re happy.
Do not reply when you’re angry.
Do not decide when you’re sad.
I guess another way to look at it is this:
If you have to ask if someone's telling the truth, there's something wrong. So don't ask.
Which is consistent with what you said.
Happily. Don't let short-term setbacks make you think you're off your long-term path, Christine.
I believe in you!
I don't have a longterm path anymore...
