Lies & thieves

Do I lock my car when I leave it?  Yes.  Is it important to lock your door at night or keep sensitive information password protected?  Certainly.  Do people lie to each other?  Yes.  However, I think living each day believing everyone is trying to cheat you or steal from you is a terrible way to spend your life.  It’s a waste.  A certain degree of skepticism and caution is needed in day-to-day life–on some days, a great deal is needed–but souring your life by assuming the worst of everyone isn’t a good way to do it.  I’ve listened to a lot of badmouthing of strangers the past few days and needed to say something positive to make up for it.
