Who trust in other's....

"Those who rely only on the good in people
will one day experience bad times.
Who only believes in the bad of people
will not be better off. "
Wolf Ruede-Wissmann



Unilateral fixed expectations, of course, lead to disappointment, but meanwhile I appreciate the disappointments. Disappointments show me a lot of internal assumptions, which were unfounded. Am I not standing firmer without them ?.....

I think I prefer the first one, expecting the good. I would rather do this than the opposite. At least I have acted positively instead of judging wrongly only to find out I was wrong later. When I see the good, then it is a positive vibes and sometimes people respond positively to.

I have borrowed and learned this parting words from you - ALL THE BEST...lol...happy blogging.

Most of what we accept is perhaps unfounded... how truly do we understand ourselves... let alone others...

my first thought of these words were the implications to myself and my fixed expectations... "who trusts in others..." perhaps they lost faith in themselves... or maybe they are looking for the lost faith...
