It’s difficult to trust people in a world where we all wear masks. It reminds me of a masquerade ball… we all pretend to be somebody else to protect our soft, vulnerable hearts.
Not everyone is like this. Some of us wear our hearts on our sleeves. This means we get hurt more often, until we’re hesitant to trust people. Because some people are deep and loving, and others are shallow and petty. Who to trust? Left with a conundrum, we opt to trust nobody.
Trusting nobody is a lonely business.
I always dip my feet in the water again, because humans are social creatures and we do not thrive alone. But whenever we decide to open up and be honest and vulnerable, we take a chance. Maybe we’ll be hurt again, maybe not.
We just have to try.
