Here at sometimessheblogs, Wednesdays are for commenting on this list. So let’s get it started.
Number 28 on the list of things I should know before I’m 30:
Who you can trust, who you can’t, and why you shouldn’t take it personally.
The tough thing about this item, is that, yes I know who I can trust that I know. But I work with new people almost every week. I have the opportunity to make new friends from all different cultures and languages… and sometimes people are only around for a week or two at a time. I like to assume the best in everyone, that I can trust them and be friends with them. And this is not always true.
I don’t take it personally when I can’t trust someone. But I don’t like to live in the assumption that I can’t trust someone until they prove otherwise. So that’s the hard part… how long does it take to figure out if you can trust someone? And if you operate under the idea that people can trust you, then it is hard not to take it personally when they don’t treat you the same way.
Your thoughts? Since I obviously have no clue…
