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