Trust


Why does it take years to build trust and only a few minutes to lose it? Why is broken trust such a painful wound? Why when trust is broken by one person, do we feel we can no longer trust anyone? How do you start trusting again? When is it wise not to trust? Can the pain of broken trust be repaired?

We dont do trust very well theres really only a couple people we completely and totally trust and then a couple more that we almost trust completely. and now that I think bout it I guess that aint even true...theres nobody we completely and totally trust cause if there was we would be abled ta tell stuff easy and we got a hard time doin that even with our T. So I guess its really a handful of people we almost trust. :|

im not sure but we sure arent the ones to ask lately. Youre right in what you say easy to lose hard to build

You are so right. Hard to build easy to destroy. Trust is a hard thing to get back.
I think it is possible, though I see how everytime it gets briken, it gets all that much harder to trust again.

I think I know how you feel.

I guess I with you. There are just a few people we trust and not with everything. Safer that way.

JIP:
Once lost it sure goes fast. It sure is hard to build again

breeya:
I gald it may be possible to rebuild. I guess it will take time.

well ... remember ... you've worked hard at building trust in some people ..who've worked hard and earning that trust.

They were not the people who betrayed that trust. It was someone else.

Who's shown themselves trustworthy.

That's the fragile thing about trust. It can collapse in a nanosecond. Then we need to be cautious and careful and measure trust and loyalty. So hard sometimes.

Trust is a hard one. I have had the same problems. When a person is hurt so many times it is hard to trust anyone at all after that. I think it can be reastablished in a relationship, but Trust has to be earned. Earning it is not a one day affair.

Dreaming:
You know there are a select few I trust. I'm just gun shy now again.

Dr Deb:
This is a hard one for me, I am trying to find the right balance.

Wolf:
Thanks my friend. I'm sure thing will be the way they are suppose to be.

I don't trust people due to lots of broken trust. Yet conversely sometimes I so desperately need to feel like I can trust that I get into situations without thinking. Not so much as in the past but it still happens. I don't think I'll ever be able to fully trust anyone though.
