Naiveity, food for fools?
'He's a good bloke Joe.'
'How do you know?'
'Well my mate told me he is, and she knows him well.'
'Oh right, she's known him for a while then?'
'About two weeks, so it's alright.'
'Two weeks is a life time, i'm sure she knows him inside out.'
'I didn't ask for sarcastic comments.'
'No one does, i've had girls crying their eyes out on my shoulder, saying that they thought a guy was 'alright', but when they got back to his house all he wanted to do was stick his cock inside of them.'
'He's not like that, I know he's not.'
Sometimes you ask yourself how people can afford to be this naive.
You were naive once, so much so that you thought that no one would ever hurt you, that everyone was happy in this world and that everyone was nice to one another, you soon woke up, you soon realised that life is not all roses and lillies, in fact it is roses then lillies.
It amazes you, to the point of disbelief, that some people are so naive they would call someone they have only just met a friend, or that they would go back to a person's house having only just met them in a Night Club. It is a bad, corrupt, dangerous world, not everyone has the same morals, not everyone lives by the same rules.
'It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.'
Perhaps Alfred Lord Tennyson would like to tell that to some of the people who's spouses have cheated on them, or to those who have had friends betray them coldly. You can guess that he wouldn't get a warm and fuzzy reaction.
In a world where people betray each other with a single action, where violence is just another reaction, where innocent men are knifed in the street, where innocent women are raped in back alleys, in their own homes, by people they trust, it's hard to care, it's hard to be optimistic, it's even harder to sleep.
Sometimes you ask yourself, if God will ever forgive you for what you have done, will he ever forgive others for what they do to each other?
This gives you hope:
"Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you." Ephesians 4:32
