I hate that I am too trusting. And I hate that I hate that Im too trusting.
I take people at face value and often I get burned.
We should be able to take what people say as truth and yet people lie, cheat and manipulate. What makes it worse is that I try my damnedest to be honest and open and I expect the same from others. So when I find that I have been misled it hurts that much worse.
Im getting better at being able to read people and trusting my instincts but it makes me sad that I cant be trusting all the time. That I have to work against my nature. That I have to watch what I say and do in front of certain people. Sometimes I hate that as much as I want to I cant be bitchy and nasty and deceptive right back at them.
I suppose that being trusting is not something that I should hate about myself. Perhaps I should be embracing that part of me!

I agree with you don’t let others turn this good quality into something you hate. Learn wisdom to protect yourself but keep you open spirit.
You sound a lot like me. I also have the problem in trusting everyone and it would be so nice if one can trust everyone, but that is not the situation at all these days.
We need to protect the good qualities in us and not let the world ruin it – trusting people is a good quality. Don’t let it change you because of a few bad apples. Stay true to who you are.
I am very much like this – especially the open and honest part! I have unfortunately learnt the hard way not to trust people too easily 🙁
Oh this is a tough one. I too am trusting so now I throw barriers even before I meet someone.
I think it is an amazing quality to have, don’t lose it!
I had to teach myself over time that even if I trusted someone and treated them as a friend, I didn’t have to share everything and make them a complete confidante. I think this has saved me some heartache because I don’t give everything to everyone!
