Are you wearing rose colored glasses??

I remember being a small child and always wanting to see the good in people and having other family members say, oh she will believe anything…she’s so naive, poor girl. I think that growing up with that in my head has caused many situations that haven’t proven to be wise choices.

I think animals try to wear rose colored glasses…they want to believe that people will feed them, give them a warm bed…they are so loving and ready to forgive you easily. They don’t hold a grudge or anything…Abraham says be more beast like…hmmm?

Yet, Have you ever heard that little voice inside that says…”danger – danger…something’s wrong? ” And you just ignore it and hope that things will change? I know that I am not the only one that has had this warning bell and ignored it. Oprah says that the best thing she learned from Maya Angelo is…“when someone shows you who they are, believe it.” That has been a hard thing for me to do. I thought that it was more noble to believe that everyone was good, or at least had some good in them and if you kept focusing on that, sooner or later they would rise to that. Well, not true.

From now on, when someone really shows me who they are, I am going to see it without my rose colored glasses on…and save myself from the long road of heartache…If you have had any similar experiences, please leave me your thoughts…
