A reliable enemy is preferred to an unreliable friend
I happened to stumble upon a very well articulated read today. Although most of it is a common knowledge, but reading it brings more clarity.
Trust is both emotional and logical. Emotionally, you expose your vulnerablities to others, expecting that they will not take advantage of them. Logically, you access the probability of someone behaving in a predictable manner, based on the facts and opinions you have collected.
Dimensions of trust include,
Predictability: Trust means being able to predict what other people will do and what situations will occur. If we can surround ourselves with people we trust, then we can create a safe present and an even better future.
Value Exchange: Trust means making an exchange with someone when you do not have full knowledge about them, their intent and the things they are offering to you.
Delayed Reciprocity: Trust means giving something now with an expectation that it will be repaid, possibly in some unspecified way at some unspecified time in the future.
Exposed Vulnerabilities: Trust means enabling other people to take advantage of your vulnerabilities – but expecting that they will not do this.
The mother has left this nest.
I don’t know where she has gone.
Feels like she is around, doesn’t feel like she’s gone.
It strikes to me that probably I could never ever communicate with her like I did before, in any place or at anytime.
I have lost her like others.
There is no replacement for mother, her protection, her love.
Grief upon grief continuously.. I am tired.
Tried to get out of this vicious condition, in many stupid ways, but ended up hurting myself and others.
I think I need to accept my destiny, to suffer.
Don’t know how much, and for how long.
