    To Trust Or Not to Trust

    I trust until given a reason not to. It's taken me a lifetime to get here. I used to belong to the "No One Is Trusted Until They've Proven Themselves" Group. When someone hurts us we often close down in a hopeless attempt to prevent future pain. I did, until I realized...

    Caring and Forgiving

    I'm a pretty caring person. I have empathy for others. And I trust what people tell me about themselves and their situations. I take people at face value, and am not usually suspicious unless their story sounds way too far-fetched. And even when I find out that something told to...
