Many people have been betrayed by someone they love. But how do you move on with that person? When it’s your mother, do you erase the act and start all over again because she’s your mom? When it’s your brother or sister, do you erase the act because he/she is family? When it’s a relative, does that person get the same regard as a parent or sibling? You love them because they are your family versus because you have established a real relationship of some sort with the person.
And let’s talk about friends, I guess by today’s standards. How many foul plays are accepted before you walk away? Or do you have categories, like the friend you go shopping with, or the movies, but a different one for going out, another for couple events? Do you trust them only within their category? Or do you wholeheartedly trust them; and if they go beyond the barriers they are out for the category or just out? Or are you just a good friend and love them for who they are and want the best for them? (is this an antiquated way of thinking by today’s standards?
Is one more important than the other? Last thought, when you’re married, do you trust that your spouse is going to take care of you if you should get sick? Does that other person puts the uncomfortable moments aside and does everything to comfort you? Or does he/she act in the most complaining way; minimalistic-does what has to be done, and disregard the new things that need attention;the compromising of the self for the sick? I don’t know. Just pondering if one is more important than the other.
Personally, I think….well you tell me what you think.
