We have to trust people

Was chatting with a friend recently about the people in their life they feel they can trust,a nd their struggles with doing so, due to people having let them down in the past.

The interesting thing though was their level of self-awareness, talking about not wanting to turn out like their parents, whose lack of close relationships and support networks-which resulted from their lifestyle of not trusting people. They had seen the negative effects it had had on their parents life, and were looking at ways of turning their life around.

"Not trusting people is just not a good way of living life, it means you never achieve any depth in friendships, and people then begin to not trust you, and you wind up living a shallow and superficial life"

So true.
