Naivety Along The Way.
As I travel along this road through a city called life, with the odd slip road to wisdom I find myself always questioning my belief in people.
I tend to believe a person with what they tell me. I don't believe in first impressions. I don't like to be judged so why should I judge someone else?
This, I was told is naive.
Yes. I am naive. Yes, I realise that not everyone has good intentions - believe me when I say I know! But why not believe somebody?
I believe that the majority of myself and stuff I have experienced and lived is jaded. I do question motives. I wonder why a persons thoughts lead them to actions that are not the best intended. I'm not perfect, but I'm not half bad.
What is the point of living life on a first impression basis? That we don't believe that person?
My naivety is the last little remaining innocence I have left. Yes, it has gotten me into trouble. Yes, I've been hurt. Yes, I've been proven wrong. But if I don't believe - what hope do I have?
You live, you learn. I can usually read a person well not on first impressions but by facial expression, words they use, their whole demeanour tells me about their life.
But maybe I should change and ask questions. Naivety isn't always necessarily an evil, but its not all good either.
What do you think?
