Trust is like a glass, once broken can never be the same again.
Some think they can break your trust, be forgiven, and the trust will be back to normal. It’s not as simple as that – if you want to regain someone’s trust, you make the effort, and you’re patient. If you broke the trust it’s not the other’s fault, and you have to give them time, and prove you care about rebuilding the relationship, and that you won’t betray them again. Trust takes a long time to build, and a second to destroy – so it can’t be ‘expected’ to be rebuilt any quicker than it was the first time, as now there’s good reason to be cautious. ~ Libby Dee
