too trusting?

Sometimes I think I'm too trusting. I let people in way too easily because I believe in the goodness of others. I think everyone is beautiful and loving and kind. Too often then not, do I find that people take advantage of my trust to social climb, to benefit themselves, and to use others. I'm learning slowly, and I don't like it--I don't like to have my guard up--to take things at face value and account for others based on their actions and not their words.

I still believe that people are loving and just want to be loved. It's just that most of them are not happy, and some of them go about achieving it in destructive hurtful ways. I cut them out, but there will always be a part of me who wishes them well, even if they were horrible to me. I just can't help it.

I am the same way. But recently asked my husband to move out after deciding there is absolutely no trusting him ever again. I was being nice to him and then my boss said "Stop being his friend, he isnt being a friend to you". She is right. He has only been in it for himself.
