Transparency is what most of us want in dealing with others; no matter the situation, you expect people's intentions to be as clear as possible. But, in actuality most people are far from transparent even as they see their own reflection in the mirror.... That reflection just might not be the image others see......Oh Jayna don't be so cynical...you might say...Or, that sounds like some emotional BS...LOL...maybe so, but wouldn't it be great if people told you their true intentions and their true selves upon introduction,,Like..How you doing...My name is Jayna...and I don't like liver or I really hate sharing my toys...My biggest pet peeve is people that lie all the time, as if telling the truth is so hard...ughhh...I consider liers an insult to my intelligence, especially when my gut tells me otherwise. Nevertheless...I guess it's like my Granny would always say "...some people" For me though, I try to be as transparent as possible in relationships/situations because I know what being lied to or taken advantage of feels like....Ya dig?
There was a time in college (Pre-google..I think) when I was a victim of a crime, A man I was dating was living on campus under an assumed identity.. It wasn't until after he had disappeared, that I learned the whole story from the campus police and Bank of America...It was all laid before me..because they thought I was involved... And I was, needless to say, devastated, embarrassed, hurt, mad...blah, blah, blah He presented himself in such a manner that he had EVERYONE fooled.
Then there was the time..When I found out my first adult boyfriend (I was only 16..but I thought I was grown), the first guy I said the three most mis-used words on the planet to..."I Love You" was indeed married. OMG...get this, His wife happened to get her hair done at a well-known beauty shop and well, after her appointment one day he went inside to pay and, well...my friend told me...I was a side-chick and didn't even know it...what a sad situation...which could have all been avoided If I had known he was married.
There's more, but hey, we all have our own stories to tell or...NOT
I'm saying all of this to simply say..... These days it truly behooves us to do our homework before allowing others to enter our safety zone... If when dealing with someone if the same things have continuously happened to others in their path...that...might be a little suspect...IJS
I used to consider giving people the benefit of the doubt..something to be proud of.or that there are more good people in this world than bad...but baby when you are met with a bad apple or two, you start loosing hope in people...period.
There's an analogy here somewhere,which I'll probably think of later, but right now...I'm processing this flow...
I'll be the first to admit, I've been known to be too trusting at times in the truest sense of it all....or, like someone else said "you are too nice".....But hey, we all have our shortcomings...Mine usually involve this old heart of mine that I just can't seem to stop wearing on my sleeve.
LOL...It's funny how you can tell someone has been through something...because they start speaking philosophically as if they've instantly become PhD's in Situationships and Relationships...LMBO Oh, but I digress
So, where do we go from here? "All that I can say...Do do do do do do doooooo" LMBO Keep it pushing, stay focused and just be the best you, you know how to be...I still believe love conquers all.
That's my two cents...
Like I ALWAYS say...Life is too short and tomorrow is not promised, make sure the ones you love know that you know that they are loved.
