At times we can become a little naïve about our expectations of people. I always set them high and allow people to deduct their own cool points. But at times you can be reallly thrown off track when you know in your heart of hearts that certain people will not let you down.
At these times I have to say to myself, when someone shows you who they are you have to believe them. Some people do not share the same moral codes as we all do. I was surprised by a certain persons' behavior today and I had to remind myself that everyone is not who they seem. What we may create in our minds as the ideal person may not be an accurate depiction.
I believe that's one of the lessons I have yet to fully understand. I always look for the good in others to a default but I hate to think that people are just innately immoral and unrepentent. I don't think I ever want to think of someone as a bad person even before I've given them a chance but sometimes you have to take it as you see it.
