It’s difficult for people to trust others. Trust is just not something that comes instantaneously when one person meets another. I got thinking about why it’s so hard to truly trust someone, and that’s when I realized that it’s probably because we’ve all had a long history of being betrayed. Betrayal isn’t always as dramatic as in the movies, but it does happen…and it always hurts when it does. I guess we just have to accept that humans are fallible creatures, and that betrayals provide experience and knowledge for the future. Without those betrayals, when it comes time to really choose to trust someone, you might have a hard time deciphering their personality. Betrayals are painful, but a part of learning.
