Since my intuition always ends for me in plucking straws and going way to far, I try to surround myself with people I trust. There is only a handful of people I respect and of the others I expect the worst. It's near to impossible to gain my respect if you dont think like me. I have the attitude live and let live, but who I consider friends and let into my world thats my thing and I strongly regulate that. Too much closeness easily drives me into my shell.
of course when someone I thought loyal, betrayed me and that happened, it ruined me deeply. Scars like that I wont ever be able to get rid of in all my life and maybe thats why I am so defensive nowadays and 'dont care, dont listen' has been the best for me.
