Growing up

Sometimes being an adult is hard. One of the things that has been the hardest for me to have lost was my innocence of basic human nature. I use to assume that all people at least wanted to do what was right or at least wanted to treat people right. As I have grown and matured I have found that to not be true. Don't get me wrong I think there are amazing and good people everywhere. I am blessed with hundreds of these good people in my life. Perhaps I even appreciate them more because I see the other side of the spectrum.

On days like today though I miss my naive state of mind where I just knew everyone deep down was good and wanted what was best for people.

I feel that sentiment! I have my own take on it all of the time...I don't know what you are referring to, but I empathize regardless.

I had an experience on my mission that really shook me up to the good in man. It took a few years to trust again and even believe in the goodness inside people. I really isolated myself and kept my guard up. I still have some of those guards, but thankfully the Lord has placed so many wonderful people, such as you and your family, and Chad of course, to show me that the light of Christ really does radiate from most individuals.

Sorry about whatever it is that has happened or is happening.
