Many of us have the habit of over trusting people. We can’t help but spill most of our secrets or give away too many details even to the ones who we are meeting for the first time, only to end up regretting later.
While seeing people in our light and trusting them thinking just like we don’t break anyone’s trust even the other person won’t is your virtue, however given the day and age we are living in, it’s nothing but a curse in disguise.
Most of the people you will trust will either end up leaving you heartbroken or will take you for granted. Hence, it’s essential to analyze people and situations before over trusting them and sharing all your personal information.
If that’s not enough reason for not over trusting people, here are 5 reasons why you shouldn’t over trust people.
People might take advantage of you
There are times when over trusting people might land you in a big trouble. People might take advantage of you since you have already shared with them way too many details. The worst thing is that you might not even realize that you are being taken advantage of.
You might suffer from disappointment
Over trusting people, more often that not, will give you nothing but disappointment. You should know that humans can never live up to all your expectations. So, if you feel by over trusting people you are proving your love for them, you might be wrong and in the end all you will be left with will be a lot of disappointments.
You may be cheated on
You never know the person you are putting your trust in will cheat you or not. Over trusting usually paves way for cheating. Before giving out personal or professional details you should know that not everyone you trust is trustworthy. Some may just be sweet on your face and might not spare even a single chance of betraying or backstabbing you.
Your secrets might come out in the open
If you are in that extroverted zone of yours and end up sharing all your secrets with someone, you might wake up the next day only to find out that your secrets are all out in the open. Whatever you think was to be kept under the wraps and you believed the person you’re sharing it with will make sure of, might prove you wrong.
So, the next time before you over trust anyone, think of all the possibilities and the worst that can happen to you. Weigh the pros and cons before you go ahead and spill the secrets.
