I think that the greatest pain of all of this experience has been the loss of my childlike trust – I used to love and trust people so easily. Now I have lost, to some degree, my childlike innocence of being able to trust so easily. We need to be able to trust and to love others as a child or we will never be truly happy. 

When I was a child, I spoke as a child. I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. (I Corinthians 13:11).

We supposedly "Grow Up" and have started the change into questioning every word and the double check for the "i's" to be dotted. We are not children, now. Everything has become more complicated.

You say , "It is not the truth".

There is an abbreviation "KISS" that states, "Keep It Simple, Stupid." Things could be simple, again. Maybe this is one of the reasons that it is so hard to find the real simple truths of things - it is suppose to be so simple - but we tend to complicate things with all of our Powerpoint presentations and the like.

The harsh realities of the adult life where, on the worlkplace - 'dog-eat-dog' environment makes us to discard our childish innocence and try to protect ourselves with cool, aggressive or revengeful demeanor. Ironically, it doesn't work! It leaves only enemies, bad memories and all those negative traits. So, "Kiss" is a better to choose for me. :)Be simple, laugh,  and be friendly - no panicking, no fighting. It's difficult though, so difficult as there's always fear of being judged as being silly. But if to revive that childish joy of living -- the whole world will laugh with you. Let's try it!Smile
