“I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
It's true. And what's worse, is that now I know you're untrustworthy and there are people who I love immensely who trust you. More than anything, that's what bothers me the most. I took a risk...I believed you...in fact, I defended you...Loudly..."I believe him" I said. "I trust that he's telling me the truth", I said.
Now I know it wasn't the truth...If it was just you and me, I'd be perfectly okay...I would cry as I am right now this very minute; asking myself how I allowed myself to be this vulnerable...I'd get angry...and we'd move on as if this fiasco never happened.
But it's not just us...People who I love trust you and love you. Ernest Hemingway says the best way to find out if you can trust someone is to trust them...I trusted.
