“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.”

All my life I have been a trusting person, it has caused me a lot of pain that some might consider by principle self inflicted. It has been difficult to learn that you cannot trust people. Even those you call friends always have thoughts about you that they don’t share with you. It could be fear, it could be difference of opinions, I call that lack of trust.
Over the years my ability to give trust has been chipped away at by life. Recently Cielo and I experience a breach of our trust that has been difficult to deal with. Ultimately the lesson learned is that you should not trust people, at times no matter how close you think you are to them. Is it too high of a price to pay in life to become distrustful of everything around you?
This quote made me think about all the situations that I have lived. I was burned over and over by relationships, and I always chose to again give all my trust away until I had a reason to take it back. This might have been the wrong approach but I think that if you don’t trust when in a relationship, then that relationship is not worth it. I want to be able to have relationships with people that I can trust, because the alternative to me is not appealing. I rather put effort into building other aspects of a relationship than putting stock into distrust, being paranoid is no way to be.
As always is that difficult task of striking a balance between trusting enough but not too much. I guess learning what that balance is what leads to good trust in relationships. Even though I still cannot let go completely of the thought that trust should be absolute in relationships, I guess there is not many people in the world that deserve or even want that kind of commitment.
