Trust

Trust is a precarious ledge upon which we stand. We teeter there buoyed by faith that nothing will cast us to the rocks below.  Repeatedly, we step to the precipice with confidence that all will be well.  How should we approach the trust of someone who has disappointed us more than once before – blindly, warily, or not at all? We have such ceaseless confidence in our fellow human beings.  We want this time to be different and yet, there we find ourselves, fractured on the rocks once again.  Which is worse – to be hurt repeatedly or to lose our faith in trust?
