We all know the proverb: "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." But is it really better to be safe than sorry? We often try to avoid being naive, shielding ourselves from being fooled. But living on high alert all the time is very demanding and little rewarding. By being willing to be trusting, you might get deceived again, but that’s the price of trust. If you are solid, you’ll get back up on your feet, dust yourself off and continue on your path.
