Don’t Mix Up Being Naïve, With Being Trusting

The biggest tragedy of today is peoples’ complete and utter lack in humanity. People are, for the most part, good. Things happen in lives that are not always good; we all know and understand this. Everyone has their own struggles, their own hardships. The big difference is how each person chooses to deal with it, and the way I see it, you have two options. A. You can be bitter. You can go out into the world trusting no one, turning your cheek to everyone and learning to live with only yourself and the people who have stuck with you even though you’re constantly reassuring yourself and them that one day, they will leave. And to be brutally honest, I don’t waste my time with those people anymore. So your last relationship ended because you were cheated on, your trust issues need to start and end with the person who committed the crime, because no one has the time or capacity or power to heal you, but you. There’s also option B. You can turn your bad experience into a learning experience. Take what happened to you, and allow it to make you stronger instead of weaker. You have that power, that ability. Let it add to your list of reasons to prevail, to push forward and find the people who will not disappoint you. Because those people are out there. And everyone deserves to have those people.
