I'm all for looking for the best in people.
Optimism. Forgiveness.
Second chances. All that.
Any of you who have been following my blog over the past year or so know how I feel about focusing on the positive, whether it be in people or in particular situations. But sometimes, we've got to be wise enough to determine when enough is enough.

Repeatedly looking for the best in a person will eventually be more detrimental than advantageous. Sometimes you've just got to take things at face-value instead of trying to rationalize people's actions. If you find yourself constantly having to make an effort to find the best in a person, that should be a sign in itself. They're giving you what they have to offer, you can't always try to dig through it and find the good. If you've got to SEARCH, especially if it's a recurring trend, what you're looking for more than likely doesn't exist.

Accept that.
