People do tell small white lies, but when someone lies to you, can you ever trust them again when you have caught them out? I have a friend that likes to blame her medication for it, but I’m not buying it.
To me, trust isn’t given, it is earned. I will give people the benefit of the doubt, but level at which I trust them is tempered by how much they’ve proven that they are worthy. If they step on me, it merely takes longer before they are again trusted as much as they were. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen, but it isn’t a given.
