A buddy was grumbling
that a loved one
wanted her to go on a trip.
She told him
she wasn’t interested,
but the loved one was insisting.
It was causing huge problems
in their relationship.

I asked “Why does he want you to go?”
She said “He needs someone to go with.”
My reply?
“He has plenty of other someones
he could ask
and plenty of other places
he could travel to.
Why you, why there, and why now?”

She asked him.
It turned out
there was a significant
heart wrenching reason
why he wanted this trip to happen.
Once she uncovered this why,
she agreed to go with him.

If you want something to happen,
explain why.
If someone else wants you to do something,
ask why.
Why is very powerful.
Use it.
