Extreme Trust & Distrust


There exists people belong
To two categories.
Extreme to each category
Very few in-between
Prudent category.
The two categories are

Either

Naive
Trust others too much
Believe others too much
Treat others are nice like themselves
Either being cheated or betrayed
Reveal self too much

Or

Wicked
Distrust others too much
Believe self too much
Treat others are cunning like themselves
Either cheat or betray
Refusing saying too much.

Do you wonder this yourself?

My mother told me that my dad is a very trusting person whose life and money were sucked by his friends. Then I was inspired with this poetry title and the poetry flowed later on. The book of Proverbs described the contrast between the naive, prudent, and the wicked. As I observe and scrutinize my parents, I realized i have a prudent mother. If not for her, I won’t be able to study in Singapore to get bachelor. Her motto (translated to English) is, “Though not cheating, prevent self from being cheated.” Then I wonder about myself and reflect the above poetry.

  1. Very reflective. And I can relate. I have been kind to a fault, generous to a fault, tolerant to a fault. Not good!!

    I like the proverb.
