Recently I had someone tell me the only people he trusted in this world was me and Doris Day. “And I don’t even know if Doris Day is alive,” he added.
Well she is. I checked “Dead or Alive?” and verified this. But anyway, I trust quite a few people. Actually I trust virtually everyone I meet because I internalized Henry’s philosophy when I was a kid.
Henry thought most people were kind and that all people should be given the benefit of the doubt until they proved themselves to be disagreeable. I believed him. I absorbed this and have always lived this way. I just think people are up to good all the time, which I admit is a little naive.
Do you trust people?
