Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

Never judge anyone. There was once an old man, that sat at the same park bench day after day. A younger gentleman that went running in this same park almost daily always saw this happy, smiling old man, and always wondered why he would just come to the park, sit and smile. Finally after about a year, his curiosity got the best of him, and he stopped to ask the older gentleman why exactly he sits in the same spot daily and just smiles at everyone who passes by.
