Usually when I first meet someone, I give them the benefit of the doubt; which means there won't be any judgements made toward them until a few more meetings were over. When people tell me something, unless it's insanely off-track, I believe them until it has proven as false. I have a nature and tendency to not lie, lies that are harmful in nature, lies that are detrimental to bother myself and others. Of course, white lies are sometimes necessary for certain situation, and I do use them, as an empathic and objective speaker and listener. In my utopian state of mind, I dream of people implementing the same concepts, knowing that it is do-able only by about 20% of the current population. Sure, it's okay, I don't mind, people do whatever that's suitable for them. The only thing I hope for is my close and beloved ones, to do the same for me, in return for what I do for them. Give me the benefit of the doubts, believe my words, and not lie.
If I am confident enough to say what I said or say, then you should be confident enough to believe me. It hurts knowing someone dismissing what I say (right in my face) because they think they know better. Maybe that they know better, but do they know "outside of the box"? All that they know is that they know what they know in their mind, it wouldn't hurt giving me the benefits of the doubt and trust me for what I say.
