How do you know who to trust in these times when everyone has some hidden agenda? We cannot also go about suspecting everyone who tries to get close to us of some treachery. There just has to be someone you can trust. In fact, most of our humanity is built on the idea of trust.
If there’s no trust, we would be literally incapable of living with any other person than ourselves so why not give it a shot. It’s worthwhile to try giving people a benefit of doubt and when they let you down, remembering that there’s still some trustworthy humans out there.
