Here’s my plan for living the rest of my life. It’s extremely simple:

I’m going to continue my default mode of emotionally trusting a person unless they show me I shouldn’t. The odds are that I’m going to get hurt some while I look for good relationships. Big deal.

The good thing is that nothing will ever hurt as much as how my ex dumped me.  A lot of people supported me when that happened, but, unfortunately, a lot of people whom I thought were friends let me down, too. It hurt, but not as bad as how my ex hurt me. So, since nothing will be that bad, it’s going to be easier to deal with the hit or miss as I look for healthy relationships.

So what if I get hurt. I’ll find some good friends, too.
