  1. This is not an easy one to write about.
    Once trust is broken I don’t think that it can ever be fully forgiven and certainly not forgotten. You may try to forgive a person who has lost your trust, perhaps because you care for them, but there is always that doubt in your mind. It niggles away at your feelings and you constantly wonder if they can ever be trusted by you again.Where once you would have told them everything, now you hold things back because you cannot fully trust them with the information that you want to give.
    Maybe after a number of years, it might be possible to trust again to the extent that you did before, but I still feel that you would be wary and looking out for the tell-tale signs that one again you have been betrayed.
    As far as I am aware I have never betrayed a trust but I have had my trust in another person betrayed and THAT I will never forget. It hurts too much …

  2. I think everyone deserves a second chance if they truely desire it. It doesn’t mean I trust immediately, but with time if earned.

  3. Forgiveness is a gift that you give to yourself. It allows you to move forward. Forgiving does not mean forgetting.
    Focusing on what is positive and what you love in the person is the number one key I believe in forgiving. If they have hurt you and you care about them, it hurts more. The goal isn’t to make it hurt less by pushing away someone you care about that does more to further injury. It’s a hard thing sometimes but living a life of gratitude makes forgiveness a whole lot easier ;D

  4. How strange Adrienne – I just wrote about forgiveness and said much the same as you!

    I think you can never recover trust – its like a beautiful vase, once its broken it is never the same again. The question is can you live with it in its imperfect state – can you learn to love it complete with its flaws? Or do you have to get a new vase? There’s no right or wrong. Only you can decide.

  5. Surely whether you can or can’t recover trust depends on the severity of the infraction. Cheating on a spouse – oooooooh! (anger) but, I don’t know, accidentally burning down the shed – hmm…

  6. It takes a certain amount of faith to regain trust in whatever you lost it in. Depends on how much you have in said person or idea.

  7. Certainly, If the person who broke the trust is really guilty of breaking trust. And is willing to regain the broken trust. everyone deserves second chance. It is hard to establish the broken trust but with spiritual values and faith one can learn to forgive. Forgiving is must for advancement in human life and can be achieved by positive outlook towards life.

  8. Forgiving is one thing. Letting it go, moving on. Trusting the one who betrayed depends on the circumstance. Losing trust in everyone because of another’s failure is damaging to the betrayed one. If I am betrayed again and again over the same issues, say for instance, infidelity in a relationship, (the big one), if I continue to find that all of my relationships end in betrayal of me, I have to ask myself why am I attracting this type of person? To trust the person who betrayed me over and over is not smart, either, no matter what the issue. If I tell Rosalyn a secret and she blabs and I trust her again, I am to blame. I would (and have) asked myself, “What am I doing wrong here?”

  9. Errar no sentido de ser traido, é doido na alma , dos que amam profundamente mas por outro lado , perdoar é divino, ´depende muito da gravidade da situação, de pessoa para pessoa.

    muitos se deixam levar por muitos anos de convivência juntos, muitos constituirão filhos , é penoso abandona-los em dias atuais, os mesmos inocentes acabam sendo penalizados sem culpa alguma da situação decorrentes de pessoas sofridas por traição.

    Outros pratica a traição por motivo de vingança, é de tremenda burrice , denota a familia, é notado estes acontecimentos em classe média alta , na classe mais pobre, não há muita incidência de casos de traição .

    devemos perdoar , pois é por ele que temos longa vida…

  14. I trusted my iMac completely.
    I believed in the TimeMachine
    but I hadn’t noticed that
    it’s been asleep since the end of January.
    and I am devastated!
    and may soon be a lot poorer because of that trust.

    I’m not sure that you should always Trust – when the trustee has no stake in the deal!
