Trust – It makes me sad to write this post because it forces me to remove my rose-coloured glasses and take a good look around. When I do that, I see a lot of assholes. Why would I want to see those guys everywhere?
I love looking at the world through my “rose coloured’ glasses. I like to see the good in others, even the ones who have done me some wrong. I suppose I give people too many chances and wait too long to recognize that someone doesn’t deserve my trust. I know that I am too naive. I know that I shouldn’t always take what people say at face value.
I could be a little less trusting…
Trust does have to be balanced with some street smarts so that I don’t end up in a nasty van with an axe murderer.
I may be a little too trusting, and I need to be more careful about who I put my faith in, but I actually like that about myself. I like seeing the good in others, I really do!
I am going to buy myself an adult pair of rose-coloured glasses this week and I am going to wear them happily. That will be a little gift to myself, a visual reminder that the world is a good place and there are still lots of truly trustworthy folk in it.
Eventually I will meet a person worthy of my trust no matter what lenses I am looking through.
