Gullible people; Should we pity them or do they deserve what they get?
I’ve met numerous gullible people in my life, some gullible because of sheer stupidity, others due to being blissfully unaware of the real world. These kinds of people are hard to respect or sympathise with, but sooner or later they’ll learn (one can only hope).
I’m a very blunt and honest individual, and when met with a shot of honesty gullible people seem to feel like you’re attacking them and that you’re the enemy when all you’re trying to do is look out for them.
The sad thing is that ultimately they will be brought crashing back down to earth, and when they open their eyes they’ll be looking to you for support when all you want to do is say “I told you so”. Fight the urge, and just continue to be a friend to them.
At the end of the day, all you can do is be honest, and hope that, sooner rather than later, they’ll realise what you’re doing for them.
