so, i'm ruminating over the post below and i realize i'm better than that. even though i think it's largely true that you can't assume that people care about you, i think it might be dangerous to assume they don't as well. and no courage comes from assuming all people suck. no growth either. i have had lack of faith in people pretty much down pat most of my life. and tho i think what i said is logical, it does operate from a place of hurt and distrust deep down somewhere. i want to move on to something different. something more light-wielding. why not take the risk?
Note: this is abt interpersonal relations, not walking down a dark alley at night & the like. mmhm.
Note #2: i'd still appreciate an answer to the questions in the previous post just to know how other people work.
