Have people earn your distrust

The unhappy people I know are the ones talking of conspiracy theories and how someone had an ulterior motive, etc.  They are afraid they will be taken advantage of or they won’t get what they deserve. Some of that may be true, but I find it exhausting.

I have been told I am too gracious—I am not bragging, in fact it may be true. My wife and I have been taken advantage of, like the time a house guest took our car on a joy ride without us knowing—that was cause for concern, but so what?

I prefer to think a person needs to earn my distrust, rather than my trust. It’s an easier life to lead, you have a few disappointments, but they are far outnumbered by the good.
