Love is more than just trust
In life, we are not living alone. The existance of trust is necessary in order to live a moderate and peaceful life. Trust come with rational thinking. Trusting blindly is called stupidity. I write this post because of someone who had her nickname 'when I learn to trust.. I'll learn to love'
Trust is when you know that the other party will not take any advantages on you. You trust your old friends because you know that he/she will treat you the same old way before and you're not vulnerable to them. You trust them because you think that you've known their characteristic well enough. Just like when you're pretty enough to get all the guys attention, you might have the thought that what those guys are doing are with motives and conspiracy. Same goes to wealth, when you're rich you are more insecure when it come to trust people since you might doubt other's sincerity of getting close to you.
The only people you can trust whole heartly is those who had blood relationship with you. And the best is towards your very own parents, because they love you. When it comes to love, it's not just trust anymore. It's something unconditioned and is beyond the rational thinking. Love is more than trust alone. When you love someone you'll trust em without doubt. Even if you betrayed your dad, he'll still forgive you and said, 'It's OK, he's my son and I love him'..
So learning to trust in order to learn how to love, is so wrong. Trust is based on rational thinking and observation on other party, as well as life experience. It's the same thing as when your parents ask you to mix around with the correct bunch of friends.. so that you wouldn't trust the wrong person; and with your parents experience they could judge better in some sense. When you have nothing to lose, you find it easier to trust people. Love is a feeling that comes from the heart and it should come with trust. Even if you don't trust that particular someone you still love him, since it's a whole different thing. Just like you know your lover is an asshole bastard but you alwiz trust him and believe his empty promise that he'll be someone better..
And we can come with a conclusion that love makes you trust blindly ...
Goodluck in getting blind everyone.. Happy New Year 2006 !
