Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (How forgiving are you?)

People make mistakes. In fact, “everyone” makes mistakes. Some are far more worse than others. When someone makes a bad mistake involving you, how quick are you to forgive them? Does this person have to “work hard” to “earn” your forgiveness this time or do you grant second chances freely? Some people will never learn. You might be one of them. Would you trust yourself if given another chance? For instance, there are many people currently incarcerated in the prison systems. Many have committed crimes that are too unfathomable for most people, yet as we grow “most of us change.” Would you trust someone who has been to prison before? I always try to read people from the beginning. I don’t always go by what they say. I often go by what they “don’t say, and how they don’t say it.” Sometimes omission tells a bigger picture than admission. There are many con artists, scammers and tricksters out there. Some are on a small scale, but some are on a much larger scale. On this earth, we “all” have to trust somebody at some point in our lives. What is your limit? What makes someone unworthy of trust? I am a big believer in some people. I will give the benefit of the doubt until you do something that raises the “red flag.” Your history tells a lot about you. Your demeanor also says a lot. Your interaction also plays a role. The best way to determine how much trust you have in someone is to “pay close attention.” When people reveal who they truly are, “believe them.” ┬áThank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
