Some people believe that being able to see the best in others is a great quality to possess. But when you only see the best in people, it can easily be your greatest downfall.
As someone who always sees the best in people, I can attest to the fact that it isa weakness. By only seeing the best in people, you develop false hopes. You think that everyone can fulfill the image you've created of them. That they can treat you better than they are actually capable of. You cling to these false hopes and younever give up, even long after they have given up on you.
You see everyone around you as the best versions of themselves. When their flaws have been revealed, you deny that they even exist. Even when they screw you over, you still can't seem to see anything but the good in them. No matter how many times they've done you wrong, you continue to give them opportunities (that they don't deserve) to redeem themselves.
Talk about second chances. Second chances aren't in your vocabulary. You give out second chances upon second chances until you're up to maybe five or six of them and you can't even refer to them as 'second chances' anymore. After someone has hurt you time and time again, you feel broken and weak, yet you only have yourself to blame because you were the one who gave them the opportunity.
And still, even after the damage has been done, you don't have it in you to hate them. It's impossible for you to accept what their true colors are even after you've seen them multiple times.
So as much as outsiders may think that seeing the best in people is a blessing, I don't seem to think so. It would be a lot nicer to be on the other side, where you can do no wrong.
