it's a special thing. to give someone the benefit of doubt. meaning, you really are hoping for the best even though your heart knows its the worst.
maybe this is more than i can handle.
maybe this is a challenge for me.
i don't know my take on it.
but, for now..he gets the benefit of the doubt from me.
i'm witholding judgement.
i'm holding my peace.
looking at my cards, while the chips are stacked. seeing if he's bluffing.
then i'll take a deep breath and lay my cards on the table.
so, he gets the benefit of the doubt
