Skepticism can be a very important quality. It can help you avoid scams, make informed choices, and stay sane in this crazy world.
But credulousness also has its own benefits. By not assuming the worst of people, you open yourself up to unexpected possibilities and genuine connections.
One of my long-term goals is to tone it down on the skepticism. I’ve spent enough time protecting myself from everything that doesn’t seem 100% certain, and have surely missed out on valuable insight because of that.
I’m going to try and stop seeing dangers that aren’t there in opportunities for connection, and instead try to take things as they are and not as I’m scared they’ll be.
