    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...

    I trust people when they say who they are and don't require proof. Don't talk to me if I have to prove to you who I am.
