Trust What Someone Has Shown Themselves To Be, Not What We Wish That They Were | Amy Rees Anderson’s Blog

There have been a few times in my life where I really believed in someone and trusted them and then came to discover that they weren’t the person that I thought they were at all. It hurts a lot when you discover that someone you thought was a good person just isn’t. And then you feel stupid for having given them the benefit of the doubt when others tried to point out to you that the person was not someone who should be trusted. You feel even worse when you defended the person repeatedly to those who said you shouldn’t trust them and they all turn out to be right. The whole thing just hurts and makes you sad…

 

I would guess everyone out there reading this can think of a time in their own life where they have gone through something similar to what I am describing. Whether you trusted someone in a business setting, or in a relationship setting, or in a family setting, or a friendship setting…when you discover your trust was misplaced it is a huge sock in the gut. And the saddest part is that it makes you start to wonder if you should stop giving people the benefit of the doubt in life.
