They say that trust has to be earned, but to be honest, I think I treat it a little differently. I'm an open book; if someone asks me something I will be completely honest with them. That being said, I think I give everyone my trust until they give me reason to take it back. But what happens when the person you care about the most sacrifices your trust?
I've never really believed in second chances, but I've found myself more open to them lately. I'm giving everything my all, and it doesn't really seem to be working. I'm doing things that I said I never would, I'm being a better person, but I think it's exhausting. How many times can you trust someone and how many times can you give them chances until it all falls apart? You can sit in the car and wait for things to be right, but even if they return, will things really change? That's something you'll never know til you try, and it's all about trust.
If people are in your life, you need to be able to trust them. And if you want to keep them in your life, you'll continue to trust them. But when that trust is broken, it's the most painful feeling in the world.
But if you are going to be with someone or involved with someone, that trust is crucial. If you have the slightest doubt about it, you are going to fail. That partnership is going to crumble. Trust is the foundation of any relationship you will have with any person you meet. You have to work at it, and you have to protect it. Trust is sacred. Once it's gone, everything you had goes with it.
