    Wish I Could Believe You Again.

    In this town, i have yet to meet someone else like me and it disgusts me. And by someone like me, i mean someone who is honest and is opposed to lying. I have not met a single person who is not self-centered and hurts people for the kicks if they can get something out of it. I...

    I'm Laughing About It Now

    I was once so naive that when my (now former) husband came home with red marks on his neck and told me they were mosquito bites, I believed him.  Now, in my defense, I will say that I was young and fresh off the farm.  I believed that someone who loved me wouldn't lie...

    And Still Am

    I've always been naive, and the most frustrating thing was, I always realized I was naive, still was unable to do anything about it. I've developed strategies to protect myself from the consequences of being this way; as far back as I can think I've always consciously kept myself...

    So Naive

    I Remember

    There were a lot of jokes that flew over my head as a kid. When I was around 10 or 12 the show Just Shoot Me was on frequently and they would always advertise this piece of dialogue that I didn't get: Nina: I like to think of my body as a temple. Dennis: Which explains why...

    all it took was the word "hi"

    April 2011 I was at my sisters place and her best friend at the time called from jail. I answered and we started talking and getting to know each other. He and my sister came up with this idea to get me and this other guy talking and we did but that only lasted a few days. The...

    Growing Up

    I'd like to say I (was) naive but truth is, I still am. I trust too readily and I always get hurt by friends in one way or another. Life is a journey and we are always learning, I have learnt a lot but I am still so naive about so many things. Here's to keeping on learning and...

    Swapping One Pacifier For Another.

    I would love to join this group, but I suspect that naivety is much like climbing a series of ever taller hills - you never know you're not at the top until it's time to start starting tumbling downwards again
