“Don’t take my word for it” = Don’t believe me. Try it for yourself.
Example 1: The lake is too cold for swimming. But don’t take my word for it. Jump in and see for yourself.
Example 2: Professor Johnson is a terrible teacher. But don’t take my word for it. Sign up for his class and see how you like his explanations.
