When Trust Dies

I'm not sure why trust is lost or dies, but when it does the pain of thinking there is something in your love not strong enough or good enough comes along with it. And it can be agonyzing for so long

I deeply and passionately love and probably always will, but when what comes back is not love but manipulation and control it is hurtful and confusing.

Love has kept me alive emotionally. For that I'm so thankful.

Others turn to drink, or anger, or distractions only. But for me a part of me would have died the one that loves so deeply and passionately.

Mostly my children's love and unconditional love and friends love always keeps that part of me alive forever.

Trust is a fragile gift and needs to be nurtured. When it is lost it's a feeling like nothing else. For me it was as if he took the trust and threw it away like it was nothing. Like you I am so blessed to have family and friends who have shown me the love and trust he destroyed so callously. Cling to those around you...they are heaven sent to hold you up when you can't stand up on your own.

I understand this and I think I'm similar. It is confusing when you feel so much. Such passion and find it gets displaced at times. It throws me for a loop, I have to say. Thanks for sharing.
