“It was a mistake,” you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”
If you close your eyes, ask yourself; who is the one person you can trust with your very life and honor, your heart will answer you. Trust is the most beautiful gift bestowed upon another. Unlike many other attributes, trust must be earned. Sometimes, we may know a person for a lifetime. yet when we close our eyes and ask ourselves the question I posed, that person does not fit the bill. Then sometimes, we may know a person for a fairly brief period of time, yet that name will flash before us when we ask ourselves that question.
Meaningful relationships survive on trust. They are few.They carry us through our lives.
But a few are enough!
Mitch Albon, “You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too–even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling.” (Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson)
