Today I'm writing from a place of mistrust. It's as if a glass of hot water has been poured over a flame that I expected to set off fireworks. Or rather that I found the flame more harmful than helpful as I had hoped and expected it to be. I thought it was a blessing - a light to guide the way - and yet, I've been getting burned.
I've come to a crossroads where I realize that a lot of life is a game of cards... and that trust is underrated - with all certainty.
I suppose I have learned a few things - though I wish it weren't this costly a lesson:
1. Never fully trust a sweet talker.
2. Always look for actions.
3. Be ready with a contingency plan - always.
4. Trust your gut and the wisdom of many. Listen to it. Trust those thoughts - more than the excuses.
I feel like part of me is changing... like the idealistic me is becoming more aware of how not-idealistic the world actually is.
God, what are Your thoughts?
Please make things clear.
