I can't read minds. I can only go by what I see, and sometimes, what I feel. But often people can have a totally different view of you than you think they do - especially if communication between the two of you is lacking.
Life is funny. It can sadden and humble you pretty fast and quick. I know I have to change a lot of things about myself - and I'm working on it. I always thought at heart I was a pretty decent person. Not perfect, but a person who was trying to be better. We all could use a little more work, though, couldn't we?
I don't know if I will ever quite trust people fully again. And, honestly, at this point in my life I don't care. I don't need to trust anyone else ever again. I just need to do the best I can for me and my kids.
