Acting "As If" Towards People and Living with an Idealistic Approach

That is, treating people "As if" they are self-aware, sophisticated, achieved, and able. This post is particularly for those that criticized me for believing in people often times more than people believed in themselves. There is something behind the madness, and a reason that idealism works. 

I hope this gives you a reason to believe in others. Thanks to all my Philosophy professors who helped me gain this perspective early in life. 

Happy Sunday.
