I don’t consider myself to be a romantic (i.e. with an idealized view of reality); I’m much too practical for that. However, lately, I have been lacking in practicality, rationality and most of all, listening to my gut. Why do we do that as women? We are known for our intuition and yet we often ignore it.
Call me naive, but I want to, and have made a point of believing in the good of people. Unfortunately that means you can be letdown, sometimes painfully so, and it always shocks me when someone really, truly, knowingly hurts you. It really is shocking. You think you know someone, you think you cared about them and it makes you question yourself. How did I not see this coming?
But I refuse to be bitter. I refuse to not see the good in others, even if it means I’ll be disappointed and hurt from time to time. I pride myself on my positivity, which I didn’t always have and it is so important to me to continue with that.
On that note, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
