Trust, faith, believe, these are just simple words but these words have such a large impact on someone’s life. Sometimes, these impacts can also be very dangerous. If someone has blind trust in another, and that trust is broken, then what is the impact?, how does that effect the feelings of the one whose trust has been broken.
Can I explain a broken heart in words? Can I explain that pain in words? I think no one can explain. A few days ago I met my friend. I felt that she was upset and wanted to share something, so I asked her to talk about it. At first she refused because she was so upset, but after that, she said “I am confused about making a decision”. I continued to press her gently, asking her to share whatever it was that was in her mind.
She started to share what was confusing her. She said “I have a very close friend. I blindly trust her. I never think that she will lie or hide anything from me. I felt that she's my shadow, my soul mate and my one and only friend with whom I can open my heart… but I was wrong. I was not smart enough to judge her and this was my mistake”.
I listened her very carefully and patiently waited for her to get to the point that had made her so sad. She continued her words, “a few days ago my friend sent me a paragraph and said, I dedicate this to you. I was really happy to see this, it was the highest quality and I wanted to use it for my work, so I asked her “Is it your writing? Have you written this or did find it somewhere else”? She replied very confidently, “no dear it's mine, I wrote this for you and it's a gift for you from me”.
After that she asked me a few more times, “did you use my writing for your work”. I said “not yet as I don't want to take credit for someone else’s work. It was written by you so I thought that it's not fair that I get the credit” but she pressured me to use it for my work. I agreed and used it, receiving a lot of positive comments and appreciation because of this quality work.
One day I was using a social media site and I saw this same writing posted on someone else’s status. I was shocked as I had already used this at my work, and had used my name. I called my friend and asked her clearly about it. She became angry and said “you didn't believe me so why are you still talking to me. You can close this chapter and leave me alone”. I said ok and left her alone at that time.
The next day she called me and wanted to clear up this issue, so she said, “yeah, it was my writing but I published this everywhere without mentioning my name. Maybe that person did a copy paste on her status”. I said ok but told her “you should’ve let me know that you published it everywhere so that I wouldn’t have used it at my work”.
“Now I am confused about trusting her again, as she knows very well, that this mistake will make for more trouble or give me a bad reputation in front of my colleagues. But what to do…. People over here are really not trustworthy….”
She completed her tragedy and then she started asking me about my point of view! She asked what I thought about it, how did I feel? I told her that nowadays it's really common for people to deceive each other. If you take it too seriously you will get nothing but headaches and pain, so it’s better just to avoid these situations and forget about what had happened.
People will betray you many times, so will you let yourself feel hurt each and every time for their mistake. It's in their nature just like when we don't want to talk to someone and the same person calls us. What do we do? We just lie to them, telling them that we weren’t at home. We just tell these white lies. So try to forgive the one who hurts you and never forget what it taught you!
So my humble request to you is, try to forget about the past and start your routine life normally…...
