Trust...and Respect.


I want to take a moment to rant about trust. In this society people say you are suppose to trust your SO and if you don't then you should leave. I have a hard time with this. These same people also say, respect is earned and not given freely. For me it is the other way around. I was raised to respect others. To treat people how you wish to be treated. However to earn trust you need consistency. It is easy to feel broken when you put your trust into someone you just met, and they turn around and hurt you. When you don't fully know that person yet. I can fully say I do not trust almost anyone not to hurt me. We are HUMAN. We make mistakes. It is ok to worry about your boyfriends or girlfriends. It shows that you are invested. It is up to them to earn that trust. In the mean time respect one another.
