Rose-colored Glasses

Growing up my older brother use to always chastise me for trusting people too quickly and easily.  When I meet people and make new friends, I automatically assume that they care about me and will have my back.  You can just imagine how many disappointments and broken hearts this has landed me.  It's not that anyone ever intentionally tries to hurt me.   It's just there's a lot of people who are very selfish and self-serving.  They don't care about anyone but themselves.  They want what they want, take it and don't lose sleep when they have to step over someone to get it.  It doesn't matter how many times I get disappointed or get hurt.  I just don't have it in me to turn cold.  I guess I will never learn my lesson as I still want to see the goodness in everyone and still trust too soon.  And yes, my big brother hasn't stopped telling me that I trust too soon!
