I always try to see the best in people

... and time and again they show me how screwed up they can be. I so need a reset in my way of thinking and the way I see people.

Trouble is it is in your nature and that is hard to change.
Perhaps be a little more selective and dont collect lost puppies

@Hanging2 usually i get accused of being clingy. I smouther with love and become too much. How quicky thats exactly what one wants initially....then its too much.
I never close doors. My pups are always welcome back....i like to see them when theyve grown and

@RubySoo probably the maternal instinct and something I dont have.
My issue is that I am a giver and empathetic.
I have grown to a point where I have deleted people out of my life that drain my energy.
It is more of a survival strategy for me rather than their issues.
Why do I feel like I know you?

Im a give and empath bad at closing doors. I find it almist impossible to cut people out.

The more you expect...the more disappointed you might me. not sure you should stop trying to see the good in people...i wish everyone would do it more. A lot of people are very grateful to be given a chance to prove their please dont stop looking and giving folk chances.....

@RubySoo I know, it's amazing how hurtful and careless people can be.

@TimeStandingStill ooh i know...
Maybe look for the best expectations in people....realizing we often fail to meet those expectations...but we try. 🤷‍♂️
We attract people into our lives so yes I would agree with your statement.
