We live in an imperfect world. That is certainly proven time and time again. While the world is anything but ideal, I don’t believe there is a reason to be jaded about every situation that you face. People tend to take their bad experiences with people in life and transfer them onto others that they meet in the future. I am not exempt from that fact but I try my very best to not to make judgments based on what I have already been through. I would like to think that everyone and every situation is not predetermined by the past.
I think that if people spend too much time living in the past, believing that every experience that they had is going to keep repeating themselves, they miss all of the good stuff that could happen in between. My mother believes every person (men in particular) has an angle, an agenda. She is a person who has zero trust for anyone and believes that this world is full of dishonest people who are just going to hurt you. I on the other hand struggle not to believe that. I don’t pretend to think that everyone is an angel but I try not to walk around expecting to be hurt. I just don’t want to allow myself to get that jaded.
If you always expect the worst of everyone and from every situation that is exactly what you will end up getting. You get back what you put out into the universe and I don’t want to receive that kind of negative thinking. I want good things, I expect good things, and all I want to put out into the universe is what I expect to get back in return. You can’t make every situation you go through in life turn out exactly the way that you want it to. The best that we can do is deal with each situation as they come and take the lessons we learn into the next one without any prejudices thrown in the mix.
