When Trust is Broken


When a person destroys the trust that someone has for them....they have no clue the mistake they really make.  It breaks something at the core of the relationship.  

(By the way, this has nothing to do with unforgiveness.  Forgiveness and trust are two entirely different things.)

A spouse who is unfaithful, or unkind, selfish, and inconsiderate over an extended period of time.  A child who causes you embarrassment or disappointment, a friend or loved one who betrays you or leaves you hanging for no reason.  Whatever the reason they have at the moment or in those moments, it's nothing compared to the pain, first of all.  And secondly, suddenly finding themselves dealing with that person and knowing that something has disconnected because trust was broken. For the first time, feeling a wall or shield where there never was one before.  And the worst ones are the ones who still won't admit to doing wrong.  

If not but for the Grace of God many of us would have locked ourselves away from the world by now.  But because of His Grace, I still want to grow and explore life!  I still want to meet new people and interact.  I still want to live and I want to live BIG! Don't you?
