The Truth™ as I see it:

1: Never ever ever ever depend on anyone else, because they will let you down. They might not want to, but it is inevitable. If arranging something with others, always always always have back-up plans and inform them about it...
And prepare to be disappointed...

2: Out of the mouth of babes...
People will almost never tell you the truth straight to your face, or post comments using their own username. As evidenced by *That Post* by medusa, people will usually only show their true face when they are anonymous. :(

3: Trust no-one.
Ok, maybe after you've known them for a couple of years it's ok to trust people, but until then, it's always safest to assume that they're up to no good.

4: Don't believe a thing they say.
When ever someone tell you something, try to figure out what their agenda is. And if someone tells you something that someone else told them in confidence, always remember that you will never ever be able to trust them to keep your secrets confidential...

5 The only person you can ever trust and depend on, is yourself. Seriously. Trust me on this.

Hmm, I don't know if any of this helps, but I find it useful to be fully self-sufficient. I also find it useful that when I'm beginning to feel that I can confide in someone, I'll only tell them small things which don't necessarily matter, but if they get back to me via someone else, I know who not to trust. And I never give second chances.

This might all sound a bit cynical, but it helps me get along :)

Obviously there are a few exceptions to these, but they are few and far between...

I actually wrote this as a reply to post, but I thought it was worth a post on it's own...
