Many of us always repeat the saying “everything happens for a reason.” This would also apply to people; many of them suddenly show up in your life for a reason. Unfortunately, because of all the mischief that we hear about everyday about people scamming or exploiting others, our sense of trust has become severely corrupted that we feel such encounters as “too good to be true” or that there is a hidden motive behind them.
However, such meetings are truly governed by synchronicity, which states that the world brings you what you need when you need it most. You can read more about it here and find out how you can detect and make use of synchronicities. I’m not saying that you should jump into any synchronicity that happens; I’m just saying that you should open up with LOVE to that person and give them the benefit of the doubt: innocent until proven guilty. Devise a few ways to truly test their loyalty and trust. A good way to do that would be to see how quickly they trust you with some of their sensitive information. If they completely refuse it, then there is no reason for you to trust them too much. If they accept it with a touch of care, it would be ideal because they would also be testing your loyalty and trust at the same time.
In all cases, before you jump into such partnerships, think about how much trusting that person would harm you and in what ways. Afterwards, create means for you to protect yourself in such eventualities without totally blocking out that person’s attempts at friendship or partnership. As in all things, hope for the best but plan for the worst. In conclusion, be open with LOVE to all people. While some of them may hurt you, there are still good people in the world who want your trust and who sincerely want to grow alongside you. Even those who hurt you will also bring you valuable lessons and life experiences.
