From day 1, ask the question, can this be true consistently ?
What this new person is saying and showing .
A lamb is fed till fat, all for the sacrifice,
A predator is harmless before the attack.
Sometimes we learn the hard way,
It’s usually after a broken heart and crumbled self esteem,
We learn not to assume trust in the beginning.
What I learned is to let them earn that trust,
My way has been, giving away trust and wait till its broken.
I did my blaming, myself more than the others,
Some people are wired to trust,
Some people are rewired by experience.
Learning the hard way hasn’t been fun,
But I would rather prefer the lesson, than to go through it all over again.
