“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.”

 ~Frank Crane

The Polyanna and the skeptic.  Two versions of the same problem:  fixed points of view.  The key to move forward through adversity, to reach success in a difficult situation, to mediate significant conflict, is the same:  find the middle ground, discover the kernel of cooperation that leads to consensus, find trust.  It isn’t easy, but it is worth the journey.
