Trust

Trust.

Some people may say that it is the golden key that keeps friendships and relationships alive, but it does not come easily. Depending on the individuals, not everyone have it easy for them. Some can’t trust without fearing that history will repeat itself. Some can’t trust because of something that the other party has been doing.

I’ve heard too many examples, but there’s one that will always stand out in my mind whenever trust is mentioned.



“One allowed the poison to infiltrate his bones to the point where his facade crumbled in the public eye, pouring buckets of freezing water at all. The other sought solace in music and travel, flying to a place where she was confident she could start over.”

All in the name of what?

Trust.

Although they could trust each other with their secrets and thoughts, they couldn’t be honest about their feelings. The mere knowledge of this couldn’t prevent the blossoming flames into something they couldn’t have or even save their crumbling friendship.

There’s another thing that I’ve realized too.

Those who trust a tad bit too easily tend to have their hearts cracked in two more often than those who trust with caution.

What about you guys, my readers? Have you experienced a moment in time where you felt that you should have (or should not) trusted someone?

  1. I dont regret trusting someine who was once the world to me. My only regret is not impaling his heart with the same sword that he used to stab me. He took his sweet sweet time watching me crumble and fall.

    1. 安哲林, I unfortunately regret the decision of trusting him... and I won't be surprised if he says the same of me. Oh, boy, I guess he was never the one you thought he was after all.....

  3. Oh yes, I can definitely relate to this post. I am the type that trusts all too easily. I have had more positive experiences than negative ones though, so I don't want the negative to shade the positive.

    1. It's quite easy to trust the wrong person, especially when they're all nice to you, Yum List. I really am not sure; the experiences that I've faced have mostly negative than positive.... but we'll have to see whether there's a change in tides. =)

  4. I guess life is like that. We'll never know - it takes all kinds to make the world. Take all that come along, cherish the good, let the bad go by - no need to watch the bridges we're burning - life is too short to waste on regrets - and move on...with love and hope in our hearts. Cheers!!!

    1. Like the saying 'it takes two to tango', STP? I'll try to keep that in mind; it's just that I find trust a complicated yet easily misunderstood subject. I mean, I've watched the burning bridges once to see how affected the other party is. It's going to be tough to let the bad slip through the fingers, especially when the good times are intertwined in it. *sighs*

    1. I know I'll contradict my current self by saying this, Yee Ling, but I used to fall for the other party's conduct. It's like, hmmm, s/he seems nice and I shall trust her/him. A double whammy there, because not only did I fail to use my sixth sense, I didn't observe the person's behavior first.... =/

  6. Yeah, I think trust is the foundation to all good relationships. :)

    I have had very bad experiences in the past and I've allowed them to color my future experiences, which is very bad. It's a learning experience to not let the past get in the way of the future and I've been learning to do that and I'm getting better at it compared to in the past.

    1. It's easier said than done, Huai Bin. I'm not sure if I'm willing to trust again, even if I meet the right person and friends. Once bitten, twice shy - as they say, but yeah, it's a battlefield trying not to allow the past intermingle with the current and future. =/

      But I'm glad to hear that you're slowly letting the past be in the past. =)
