>In other words forgive, but don't leave yourself open to hurt? I think that's wise.

>I believe in trusting appropriately. Some people are completely trustworthy in some ways, not at all in others. Some are somewhat trustworthy in some ways.

Yes, I agree.

>I can't imagine your therapist wants you to trust inappropriately. Perhaps he doesn't understand that you trust people to the extent you've found sensible?

You may have hit the nail on the head here. I really feel like he was encouraging me to expose more than what I have LEARNED to be prudent. And that's it, I feel like he wants me to ungrow some of what I feel has been very healthy growth. I will have to discuss this with him next session. I have trusted in situations in which I should not have. I tend to be too quick to assume that people are generally kind and well-intentioned. Some are, but many are not or are limited in this capacity.
