I've been walking through some pretty rough waters the last couple of weeks. I've had to make some hard decisions that I can't go into detail about in this forum. But here are two questions I have: Why are people so quick to think that everyone else has evil motives? This has been brewing for the last couple months with various situations. I know my own intentions, and generally they're good. They may not always look that way, and I know that I'm not very graceful, but generally I'm at least well-intentioned. I think we'd all say that about ourselves. But when it comes to other people, we're very quick to assign all kinds of evil motives. It doesn't seem right. Why are people so afraid to get the truth of a matter? It seems that people prefer gossip, innuendo, and whispered conversations over honest, face-to-face encounters where we start with questions ("Can you help me to understand something...") rather than accusations. I hate knowing that stuff is brewing, and yet not knowing where I stand with anyone because people would rather talk about me than to me. That's all I can say for now!
