Whatever Wednesdays-Thinking the best of others
So I usually try to think the best of others...that their intentions are sincere, that people want to basically be happy and want me to be happy, that people aren't manipulative, deceitful, or mean at their core. I know sometimes this comes back to bite me because not everyone is good, truthful, and sincere. But, I would rather have faith in others than going around being cynical and waiting eagerly for someone to make a mistake or send a text that I could take in the wrong way. We chose how we read into others words and actions, and if we think that people have the best intentions, even if they don't, we will be a lot happier, less paranoid, and just plain enjoy life more.
