As one women posted in the relationship forum, the problem boils down to FEAR
Use your judgment and accept the face that people have their reasons for doing things.
I've had a lot of traitors in my life. But I hold on to the fact that I should trust others as I trust myself.
It's truely more of a respect thing. But it must be... EARNED
Set qualifications of earning that trust.
Then accept the face that people can't always be counted on.
Because the fact is, you cannot even trust yourself.
Be forgiving to those who break you, because those people may need your trust just as much as you may need theirs one day.
Trust is not asking of perfection, it is an acknowledgment of a relationship.
(not necessarily in a lovey-dovey way)
Now, i still know a lot of traitors in my life. But by no means are their acts unforgivable.
And try not to add to the list of unforgivable things. Because you yourself might one day commit one of those things. And it sure would be a pain to
be unforgiven even if you know you can make things right.
Now it's all you my friend. Im not saying do as I say. But I am telling you to just take this as an insight and make judgments accordingly.
