    Naive And Worldly All At Once

    It's hard to explain. I grew up in a very strict Italian and religious home so I was sheltered a good part of my life. My upbringing has affected me and in some ways I am more innocent and naive then others. I am unassuming sometimes. I expect people to be as kind as I am.  And...

    Probably Started In Childhood

    I am too naive too.  At my age and with my experiences I should be wiser.  I think it is because of the way my mother raised me. Perhaps it is from a lack of socialization I was a bit isolated while growing up.  I am still a bit isolated and am still constantly...

    I Am

    I know that I am because I trust too much.  I have lived my life on the pretense that no one is lying till they are proven to be liars.  I can say that, too many times I have been fooled into thinking that they were telling the truth.  Only to find out...

    I just got totally hit on. I have anxiety and really low self esteem, so it caught me off guard while I was getting Chinese food for my dad, when some cute guys sitting on a bench said hi to me. I sorta ignored it until they made me stop and said there was something behind me. I...

    Sometimes It Can Be a Bad Thing

    I have always been really trusting and Naive.  I see the good in all people and sometimes that can get me hurt.  When I hear about a really bad crime on the news I just can't understand why someone would want to hurt someone Else like that.  I guess it is...

    I tend to give people chance after chance after chance, even if i've been hurt or people tell me it's a bad idea. I'm stubborn and for some reason keep giving people the benefit of the doubt, but it honestly confuses me when I realize how horrid people can actually be. It doesn...

    The word naive is defined as deficient in worldly wisdom or informed judgment. On the surface it can be a bad thing I suppose.....it can certainly lend its hand in abusing that particular person with ease since their wisdom in a variety of avenues is not particularly sharp...
