“We are never so vulnerable than when we trust someone, but paradoxically, if you cannot trust, neither can you find love.” (Walter Anderson)
I do not bestow my trust easily, but when I do its like a complete and unabridged version of a long gone classic. So when I do let my guard down, I do not expect to be confronted with a breach of trust.
But what if it does happen? Are we to give up years of happiness and memories on the basis of that one act of betrayal?
We constantly hear of celebrity couples and their spats. Cheryl Cole has been accused of still harboring feelings of amore for her philandering ex-husband Ashley Cole.
While we may ridicule their devotion to these guys, is it really that easy to let go of love or friendship or any other relationship based on trust.
And the even bigger problem, once betrayed what chance does the relationship have.
“Trust is like a vase, once its broken, you can fix it but it will never be the same again.”
So what is the solution really? Do you simply let go and live like nothing has happened. That is definitely not going to help, because of the tremendous build up of unsaid emotions.
How long can you live on and pretend nothing has happened? At some point, it is bound to bubble up and spill over. And then the situation becomes catastrophic.
I am scared. Scared to trust anyone. I don’t want to make myself that vulnerable anymore.
I am sure there are millions of people out there, who feel the exact same thing. Is there ever going to be redemption for us?
“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if we don’t trust enough.” (Frank Crane)
Is a lifetime of torture awaiting me?
