Are we innocent till proven guilty?
Are we guilty till proven innocent?
It’s just a twist in sentence, but it holds a different meaning.
I used to think everyone is innocent till proven guilty, till they do something to harm or hurt… or do something against moral values towards their fellow men or women.
But apparently, that’s quite a naive thought…
Or so said those close to me, who could easily see or know if that individual is truly bad… but i’ll always be the only one who is blinded and only realized when i get hurt.
Yeap, i was that naive.
And i tweaked my mindset over the years, especially having worked through service line to being an office dweller, having been through so much lies and betrayal, it kinda made me feel jaded with anyone i interact with. Kinda unable to see the good in people, instead i’m constantly smack in the face with their wrongs…
Aunties i worked with, said all the bad things about you to the manager, just because you didn’t help them clean up their own workstations, which they were supposed to. But when they are in front of you, they treated you like they would to a friend or kids.
It’s damn tiring…
Ended up just not even wanting to expect or know how that individual is like, till they cause harm or hurt to me… and then the whole process of judging and doubting began.
Here’s my question to all:
Could you see the good in people?
To see that they are innocent, till they cause harm?
Or do you see them as a guilty bunch, till they prove their worth and friendship?
there’s a double meaning to this post.
see if you realize it.
if not, just take it as a rant… thanks.
