"Love all, trust few, do wrong to no one."
           - William Shakespeare

I have tried to live my life according to this quote because I personally think that this is the way to live a successful life. Love all. Trust few. Do wrong to no on. But lately I have been thinking about this quote. And whether or not I should follow it. Maybe I am just crazy but when the trust thing comes into play...are you setting yourself up for disaster? Or maybe you need that trust to be a happy human-being. But what if that trust is broken? How are you supposed to deal with that?

I personally have been questioning this due to a series of events that have occurred in my life. I have never been the girl to trust a lot of people. To be honest I think I have only fully trusted one person in my life and I could tell them everything. But what do you do when you think that person is as honest with you as you are to them and in turn they actually aren't?

Maybe I am being a dramatic, adolescent girl but I am just in shock right now. I have been walking around the school with my head down and in sweatpants. That most definitely is not me. I thought that being lied to wouldn't effect me as much as it did, but I can't get myself to get over it. I'm trying so hard to...but can that trust be rebuilt after you have been lied to? I don't know how I will be able to do it. And I really hope I can.

So many things are going on through my head and I am just exhausted. Why can't I forget about it? I don't know. I guess we'll see what happens. But what do you guys think about trust? Should we let ourselves fully trust someone? Or should we just shut down to avoid being hurt? I would love opinions on this matter. Thanks so much.


  1. By no means should you ever shut down just to avoid the possibility of potentionally getting hurt! Everyone needs people that they can totally trust and tell things to knowing that person will not betray them. You do have to keep in mind that not everyone is perfect, we all have our faults. I'm sure that you have lied or deceited someone before, probably someone that greatly trusted you. Hopefully everything works out for you :) You live, you learn. Let this be a learning opportunity for both you and the person whom momentarily lost your trust.

  2. thanks so much for your opinion! i was just had to vent, and you are right you live and you learn. everything is better than ever now! just had a hard day. but thanks so much! :)
