Maybe close family. But otherwise, others will like you because you offer something to them.
Belief otherwise is one of the most dangerous assumptions to make.
At worst you will feel your own character to be under assault when someone who you thought “liked you for you” reveals their opportunistic nature.
There arent any upsides.
People will say this if they fear the burden of performance.
They’d be happier leaving themselves vulnerable to a relentless and uncaring universe.
Seems like a good idea
