Loving People You Do Trust - Tips

Hello Sarah, I think you need to focus on the word "Necessary." It is easy to see that some people are in love with untrustworthy people. If you father walks up to a 4 year old daughter, hugs her and then gets angry because he is drunk, then slaps the child. The child will always want slapped. The will to trust love unless they are also slapped, their loves will involve slapping. Love exist in a million forms, and I do not see trust as part of love, a very small part, I see un-trustworthy people demand their mates are trustworthy. I see people that lie get angry when a person lies. Asking about trust to me, says you have trouble trusting people. The solution is to know the bargain, give trust and know you will be hurt, acceptance of this will make you trust the person, and open the door to loving he person without all the conditions you have. I would believe your list is very long. People cannot be trusted, they for sure, 100 percent will let you down, or say a lie to avoid their shame, they will save face. Saving face and all this honour stuff happens on TV, I would say about 99 percent of the time here in Togo I am listening to a lie or story meant to control me. I just pay attentions to the parts of the story that are true and ignore or squash the bad parts. If you are afraid of a lie, then I would be in big trouble. People lie, in the world, almost more than they tell the truth, they all want to look good. Love people without so many conditions and rules, try to give them love and they will love you back. The first time they see an opportunity to take, they will take, do not allow this to happen. Keep your cards in your hand, do not give more than you can afford to lose. Expect quid pro quo in a relationship, a relationship is a partnership, a person give you take, they take and you give. Keep track with your small friends, and with children only give.

Wow. Well this one hits a little too close to home to
know how to fully respond to your response, but I
think by saying I am moved by this topic of trust and
appreciate your words of wisdom here may be reponse
enough. Although I am not sure about this statement of
> "I do not see trust as being a necessary need of
love." What you write later makes sense...but this, I'm not
quite sure I can get my head around. How much longer are you going to be at that location
and where are you off to next?
