I was once told by someone very important in my life that you should not trust anyone unless you’ve known them to be a good person for a very long time. But doesn’t that get exhausting, having to distrust most people?
I personally think, lately, that there are different levels of trust. Only very close and old friends would know about all my deep secrets. Others know about most of my life. Others only know what I want them to know.
Either way, I find that trusting people without giving them tools to hurt you in the future is a lot less exhausting than not trusting them at all.
What do you think? I feel like people who’ve been burned before have different perspectives.
