I was sitting talking to a new friend and out came this urge to discuss trust in it’s various forms. Fickle by nature, trust is either easily given or earned the hard way. I find in writing my characters don’t trust easily. Is this a direct reflection on my presona? I don’t think so. I give my trust away easily, however if hurt it’s damned hard to earn it back.
This brings to my mind is Trust something greatly affected by how we grew up, the type of home or is it ingrained a part of us or our personality, without any environmental or personal findings. Infants trust easy because they don’t know fear. So is it then we first become afraid that skews us in another direction.
Whatever the outcome the inability to trust cheats us of a healthy life. I hope to show in my own writing the path of finding people who are trustworthy. Picking friends who are there for the benefit of being a friend with no hidden agenda. And befriending someone who was never shown how to be a good friend or the traits to look for in a long standing relationship. We were not destined to be alone, or to suffer through occurances without some support system.
I say we’re born into families but as we grow we end up surrounding ourselves with extending family to fill a void we’ve discovered along the rocky road of life.
And there we have it eventually finding or being embraced by our life mate. The one who knows our deepest fears… and chases them away. The one who knows our deepest needs, those even we’re afraid of uttering out loud for whatever reason. The one who heals all wounds but doesn’t balk at keeping it real.
