I’ve redefined trust. I trust everyone to be exactly who they are. I trust a liar to lie. I trust a cheater to cheat. I trust a user to use. And once I started looking at it that way, it’s no longer about wondering who I can trust. I can trust everyone to be exactly who they are.
The magnificent part is that most people show you that pretty quickly if you keep your eyes open and your ears closed. For the most part, who people “are” is defined by what they do, not what they say.
