Today, I asked a trusted friend if I am naive. By trusted I mean that I can always rely on a straight answer – no sugar coating. She’s a ‘straight shooter’ as they say.
She thought for only a second before responding with “yes, but that can be a good thing”.
The dictionary defines naive like this: Lacking experience, wisdom, or judgement.
How can that be a good thing? Maybe there’s a different definition that I am unaware of? Or maybe it can be seen as a positive quality if/when viewed this way: (of art) Produced in a simple, childlike style, deliberately rejecting sophisticated techniques.
Yeah. It’s a stretch, I know.
