Is it really necessary to become attached to people? Do not we still finish to be disappointed?

I would like to know that people think about bonds of friendship or love because I find that in the life, we are too often disappointed by certain persons whom we trusted. So I ask you to tell your experiences, and tell me if that is always worth relying on the others or not.

  • Jul 2 2012: We are social beings, for better or worse, so I don't think we have much of a choice. And what exactly do you mean by trust? I, personally, open up to people quite easily, yet I don't expect anything of them. I try not to rely on their aid, good will or respect, and I try to be as less dependent from others, as possible.
