A lot of my friends tell me I trust people easily. As a result, I suffer. I don’t know about the suffering part. One thing is sure: radical trust has been a mixed bag for me. I have made lifelong friends, lost money, and suffered emotionally. All of it has happened. But when I see the bigger picture, it has been a net positive for me.
The advantage of radical trust has been that I am all in, and without a doubt, I give my 100%. I understand the downside of it.
I have the option to be a radical trustworthy or a cynic. I choose to be former as it gives me a good night’s sleep and less heart pressure.
