When you give your heart to a member of the opposite sex, you give him or her permission to break your heart. That’s because love, by its very nature, is vulnerable.’ And that’s why love cannot survive without trust. Trust is the bedrock of every relationship, whether is relationship between friends, family and definitely between couples.
Worthy or not worthy?
Many ladies or guys might not be aware of the consequences of giving their most treasured possession – their heart – to a person they agree to engage in an affair. If you commit your heart to someone who cannot be trusted, it’s like throwing your pearls before swines.
The greatest mistake you can make is to assume that if he/she loves me, then I can trust him. WRONG! Love and trust are two different things entirely. It’s very possible to love and not trust somebody (the vice versa is very unlikely). For example a woman whose husband has betrayed her trust by discovering he has an affair with another woman might forgive the man when he confesses and show repentance. She may still love him but unable to trust him completely thereafter.
Trust is like an account. When you do things that build trust, like keeping your promises, showing acts of loyalty, you’re making deposits. And when you do things that destroy trust, you are making withdrawal.
Learning to guard your heart jealously against people who are not trustworthy might be the greatest skill you will need to develop to enjoy a wholesome and enriching relationship and love life. Most heartbreaks is traceable to relationships that started with either of the party not careful enough before entrusting his/her heart to the other party.
