    take my word


    You don't have to take my word for it!

    Hi,
    Does this expression mean "you don't have to believe in me"? How often is it used by natives? Is it a common and informal expression?
    Thanks.

    Nearly there :
    You don't have to accept that what I said is true.
    ( You don't have to bealive in what I said. )

    Unfortunately, I can't answer to the remaining questions.

    Cheers.
