A valuable lesson! I have finally come to realize that I cannot trust most people. In my past I have been very forthcoming opening up about my most vulnerable truths, thoughts, and feelings only to find myself in the position of being let down and betrayed by the very same people I trusted with my heart and sometimes my soul.
I have been thrown under the bus so many times I lost count, if I can’t finally learn this, then I only have myself to blame. It is a sad reality to face, one I hope I learn and move forward from. It won’t be easy for me since my default is to over share, which is part of the problem. I am learning to hold back and let people show me that they are trust worthy, before I share what I don’t necessarily want just anyone to have knowledge about.
Funnily enough, most times I don’t think people do it with malice, I chose to believe they do it because they either have nothing else to bring to the table, or because they want to prove something.
It doesn’t matter what the intention is because in the end, I am the one getting hurt, slandered and betrayed. This is not o.k. Peru-vial foot down, mouth shut!
