My Mother actually carries this mantra.
She has always believed, as I do, that we are all born decent people. It is only circumstance where people become either horrible or fantastic.
It really comes down to choices that we make or in some a biological deficiency.
My Mother always told me that she trusts everybody until they give her a reason not to.
Some might think that is a naive approach but truthfully, I don't think so.
Why should we think the worst of someone based on appearance or attitude or what we heard about them?
Have we taken the time to know the real person? Or do we want to?
Believe it or not, I have had this happen to me more than once. Someone thinks something of me based on what they see or what they heard about me. However, they did not take the time to know me or know my circumstances. If they had, they would have actually found out that I am a very decent person. At least I try to be.
Maybe, just maybe, our world needs to take the thought from Mr. Kipling and simply believe the best of others, implant it right in the old brain.
We might possibly just live in a more peaceful world by doing so.
