    Benefit of the Doubt

    I've always been a very trusting person. I'm not quite sure why. I suppose I just think that if Jesus can give us all a second chance, why can't I give everyone a first chance? I mean, I have no reason to distrust someone at first glance, do I? Do I really possess that right to...

    At least I want to give them the chance to

    prove themselves one way or the other. There are too many prejudiced people out there who look at someone and immediately stereotype them as being no-nopers just because they are different. I find that you cannot judge the worth of a man or woman simply based on their race...

    My Husband Says...

    that this is my greatest strength and my worst weekness. I love everyone... I believe everyone has good in them, and I am the one person who is always willing to give that someone a chance.  Sometimes I get burned... but most of the time I am right and because I chose to see...

    Most people have a streak of good driving them

    forward, and we should try and see this. To be honest, it can sometimes get lost among modern society, so when we get dumped or conned or hurt, that is a problem. Can we see beyond that, though?

    I Think There Is/groups Image

    I really do believe there is good in mostly everyone. No matter how deep you have to go its there!   Also I hate this groups image. I for one am not religious at all and I think the image should be something a little more practical.

    There Has to Be Something In There...

    I don't subscribe to the philosophy that all people are innately evil. I think that we all have our own stories and motives that cause us to act. In saying this, I'm not excusing the evil actions of Man. I'm merely asserting the point that, in day to day life, there is more to...

    I See The Good, Even When It's Not There.

    Innocent until proven guilty, I always try to see the good in everyone.  Trusting to a fault.  Sometimes the other person is undeserving of this confidence. But that's okay, you can take advantage of my kind nature and trample all over my good intentions...

    Everything I became is based on the experiences I've had or from an other persons knowledge from their own history. This is a great way to feel less abandoned. I believe everyone should feel like their opinions and thoughts matter. Let's honestly think about the human condition...

    ... And End Up Scolding Myself For Being Foolish!

    I always try to see the good in everyone. I always think everyone should be given a chance and I always tell myself that everyone has a heart. They are humans, for goodness sake. So,I always forgive those who have hurt me. But in the end, I realise, not evryone deserve a chance...
