I seem to continually overestimate others. Any advice?
Firstly, make sure that your self-sufficiency is alive and well. Focus on bolstering areas in your life where you think you need others to complete you. When we think we “need” others, our mind obscures their shortcomings.
Secondly, do not be misled into thinking that because someone is an Original One, that they are living from the same high consciousness as yourself. High levels of awareness are made or lost one decision at a time. Original Ones have the capability of living from high levels of consciousness, but that doesn’t mean they do. A pristine character is formed by disciplined firmness with yourself and gentleness with others.
