How to decide whether someone is trustworthy?
I am troubled because I do not know whether I should trust someone.
He is my mentor. What he says makes sense. And he is not shy in telling me that he wants the best for me.
But I always feel something is not quite right, almost like that he always has his own hidden agenda and he hides it really well from me.
I want to trust him and I try to convince myself to trust him. But I just could not get rid of the feeling.
I want to be completely open and honest with him, which I have been so far. But more and more, I fear that he will use that against me.
What he tells me makes senses and he always puts himself in my shoes (At least that is how I feel). But things have not been really working out for me.
I am really troubled.
On one hand, I fear that I have been trusting the wrong person. On the other hand, I fear even more that I might wrong someone who actually cares about me.
My dear readers, how do you usually tell whether to trust someone? Can you please share with me? Any guidance is appreciated.
