I’m not upset that you lied to me;
I’m upset from now on I can’t believe you ---
A person is never so vulnerable until they trust someone whom with the initial thought that that someone is worth to be trusted.
Paradoxically, humans need an outlet to trust those surrounding them so happiness can be found. Living in a world which is filled with doubts at every corner does not guarantee one to be a happy person because every circumstance will be filled with qualms about its true motive.
To trust a person can take a very long or short time depending on the individual themselves and the level of comfort in giving all the trust varies. As humans, we tend to trust friends and others to an extent that we would love to think of them as how we want them to be. But this is a very hard task because everyone has different motives when trying to gain trust from a person. It can be bad. It can be good. Or on neutral grounds. One will never know unless he has the ability to penetrate into the minds of others.
However, when a person whom we trust faithfully and sincerely moved the wrong chess piece and creates room for mistakes and doubts the level of trust will crumble. It is not about giving second chances and even if one does how far can the trust grow again? Once trust is broken, you can fix it but it will never be the same as it was before. A metaphor such as a vase can be used --- if a vase broke and pieces are glued back together but let it be known that the vase will never be the same anymore.
When it comes to earning trust from others it won’t be difficult because the hardest part is how to preserve the amount of trust that someone has in you and not take it for granted. Not being able to be trusted easily is similar to sitting alone in a gray area where people hardly take notice of. Like the adage says; no man is an island.
