Don’t ever underestimate people by thinking they won’t hurt you. It is often those that care the most that get hurt because we let ourselves be put in a position of being hurt by the carelessness and deceit of others. When you care so much about something/someone that is usually when you know you are prone to getting hurt at some point in the future.
It’s the whole saying about how we hurt the ones we love the most because we’re comfortable enough to do it and we know they care too much to let us down no matter how many times we hurt them. And God forbid you trust people enough to believe they aren’t out only to benefit themselves.
Honesty, Integrity, and Class are traits you definitely won’t find in Liars, Cheaters and Thieves. Hoping and wanting to believe people are better than they are won’t make them that way. It only dilutes your perception a bit to make them tolerable. Your delusion that they CAN be good doesn’t MAKE them good. So don’t be surprised when they drop their masks and rear their ugly heads. You knew they were there all along.
