“A psychic just called me gullible,” I thought to myself, “Now isn’t that just a tad bit ironic?” She’d asked me if I was into that “online dating crap” and then warned me away with the words, “You trust too much, you believe that they are who they say they are.”
Talk about a slap in the face from someone I’d never met. It’s not every day that I’m essential called gullible and by a psychic no less. However, if I’m being honest as I always try my best to be, I cannot say that no one has ever used that or similar term to describe me before. Hell, I even wonder about that myself on occasion. Strangely enough that next morning I found myself in the bathroom, looking myself in the mirror, and telling myself that my persistence in trusting wasn’t the problem. It was other people’s unwillingness to be honest with themselves and by extension me. Of course it couldn’t be me. Except it could most definitely be me and if I wasn’t to blame entirely, I most definitely had something to do with the equation.
