One of the things that I have learned about myself over the years is that I can be quite gullible.
I’m not talking about being politically naive, or about getting hoodwinked by some huge financial scheme. I retain a healthy dose of skepticism about those things.
No, I mean on a day-to-day basis, whenever I’m interacting with those around me. Usually my guard is down and I too easily – too eagerly – accept most of what’s told me, all at face value
