    Every one of us is a bit of the Divine.  I try to remember that, and seek out the Divine in those around me. Sometimes it's hard, but I keep looking.

    Some Say It's My Down Fall

    I try to find the good in everyone.  Even here on EP.  I have given some people chances most never would.  And sometimes, like recently, it has turned around and bit me in the butt. But for some reason, I just can't stop.  This is what I do.  *sigh* ...

    People get judged too quickly,

    sometimes you have to get to know someone before you really know them. Everyone's pain is not the same, it shows different on people. Some can tolerate more and hide it better.

    I Have Always Given People The Benefit Of The Doubt.

    I believe most people are kind and good. I have stuck with this principal for years. The only times it has got me into trouble was when I was dating. Almost all the men I met were still basically kind and good but they had mostly one other motivation in mind and it took me many...

    Not So Safe In This World..

    i have an urge to splurge...that i always try to find the 'good' in people. firstly because its so much easier than to pick at faults. less conflict. less uncertainty. in an ideal world there would be no dangers for us. but it seems that being trusting is almost sort of stupid...
