Trust is what gives you a reason to live, trust can be the reason a person could die. It’s okay to be trusted but is it okay to trust?
All these years, I’ve noticed that trusting is the easiest and the hardest thing to do. Blind trust is always fatal. Kids trust their parents unconditionally like parents trust their kids. Yet we see abandoned children and parents. Brothers and sisters share the same trust but differences still exist between siblings whether or not to trust each other. Friendship is also the kind of relationship which requires people to believe in each other. Since the strongest and weakest relationships of us human involves trusting each other, it’s the most important thing that requires a lot of thought.
Trusting the wrong person could get you into trouble and at times, trusting the right people can’t get you good results either. Maybe trusting something or someone is simply taking a calculated risk. You own the decision, you own the consequences. Giving someone an opportunity gives them power over you and it’s up to you, who you hand that power over to. Before you trust someone, it’s better to estimate them beforehand just to avoid unnecessary damage to self. With every broken trust, there’s always collateral damage. There was a time when I trusted someone so much that they could mess up everything with one single sentence and what affected me the most is the collateral damage that caused. Sometimes, the damage that’s caused to you is nothing compared to the damaged inflicted on something you love. But nobody is immune to the pain of backstab and broken trust. As Bob Marley said,
‘The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.’
Careful who you wish for, careful who you trust.
