Shame on me

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I'm learning...S.L.O.W.L.Y. learning from my mistakes.
I guess, I'm one of those people that I assume the best in people. I try not to treat others poorly and I just expect the same decency in return.

...and as a result, I got burned.

I put myself into a familiar situation and (for some reason) expected different results.

I think that means I'm insane...according to Ben Franklin anyways
~The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

But I'm learning.
I'm learning to trust that gut instinct of mine.
It has never steered me wrong...I just haven't listened to it very well in the past.
So I'm listening now... and the answers are loud and clear.

Now...I just have to make sure the rest of me follows suit and I don't head back down that same familiar (insane) road.

  1. I think it is great that you see the best in ppl and give the benefit of doubt. I am the opposite. I dont trust anyone and alwasy asume the worst is going to happen. It sucks to feel this way. I just dont know how to change. I got burned WAY too many times.
