Trust is a funny thing. Typically, once it is broken, it either never returns or it is never the same. Most people give trust freely (a small/general amount), and then it builds in time. 

When we give someone trust, you are trusting them with your heart in a general sense. You are trusting that they will treat you right, they will not betray you in any way or hurt you in any way. But we forget that people are not perfect, we all make mistakes. I think that some are simply easier to forgive than others. 

There is a level of betrayal that is very hard to forgive and let go of, especially when you still care about that person. You don’t want to hold onto the pain but you struggle to forget what you once felt. Someone recently told me, don’t ask what you don’t want to know. Now we all know, if you go looking you’ll find it. I’m finding though that I need to be a bit more open- minded when it comes to relationships. Such as, conversations with the opposite sex sometimes bother me, more so because of lack of trust and not knowing that person’s intentions. But you may never know, which is where the trust comes in. You can’t say that a person you’re with is only ever aloud to talk to you or other friends of the same sex. And if you fully trust that person, this won’t be an issue. 

Some people, women in particular don’t see anything wrong with having “trust issues.” They feel like they will meet someone who will knock down those barriers. But if you have trust issues, they stem from insecurities which means that nothing a person do will ever completely rid you of the lack of trust. They may gain a lot of it, but it will never completely be erased until your insecurities are gone. I know what I bring to the table, so trust me when I say I’m not afraid to eat alone. Be sure of yourself. Love yourself so much that it sets the tone for how others respect and love. 

Trust = Faith
