I think that most of us have probably been hurt by someone in our past whom we trusted, and that trust was misplaced, but if you go through life never again taking a chance on people, you run the risk of never truly living. I try to think about all the people whom I have trusted and they never let me down, rather than focus on those few who betrayed my trust. A much more sastifying exercise.

A peaceful way to live. There is no serenity when one focuses on negative experiences of the past or expects them to be in their future.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

Just want to wish everyone the gift of peace in their hearts.

Yup..I left my job due to a newborn and stupidly recommended a so-called friend of mine for the job. Now she's ensuring that I never hold down a job and actually "biting the hand that feeds" with her slanders all because my husband's faithful to me. All I can say; I would never be that nice again. :-X

I don't trust easily anymore since then....lesson learnt.
