Trust Is The Foundation Of Any Relationship

One of the most important things someone can tell you is that they trust you. Whether it be “I told you first” or “I knew I could count on you,” it makes you feel good to know that someone trusts you. It can take years to gain someone’s trust or even a second with a heart-warming smile. It varies for everyone.

For me, it’s hard for someone to really gain my trust. I have a lot trust issues after having friends lie to me, turn on me, etc. And once that trust is gone, I don’t know what to do. They know all these things about me and probably know me better than anyone.

Now, they’re another face in the crowd.

I could forgive them, but what will that mean the next time?
Am I going to be used again? Every part of me wants to forgive them, but the other part doesn’t. The trust we had built years for is gone. Sure, they may think they were making a choice to save our friendship, but in the process were really breaking it.

Trust is really what makes a relationship (romantic or platonic) with someone. In a long-distance relationship, the most important part of it is trusting them. If you don’t trust them, how do you believe they’re not doing you wrong? It’s the same in a friendship. That person could easily be going behind your back.

All I want is for it to go back to normal and to trust them with my life, but I don’t know if I can. What does it say about me if I do? Am I going to be walked over again? Is it going to give someone else the permission to walk over me? Hopefully not. But you really don’t know. All I can do for now is clean up the mess you made.

Only time will tell. Sure, now it feels like my heart has been ripped out and set on fire with the power of the suns. The only thing I want to do is cry or break a window. But all I can do now is wait.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
