If someone close to you (your significant other, for instance) constantly lies to you and betrays you for a long period of time, do you think it will ever be possible to truly trust them again? Do you think that once trust is broken, it will always be broken? Or do you think if you work hard enough at regaining the trust, it can be repaired in time? I just wanted to hear your all's thoughts on the issue. I currently have a lot of trust issues. My on again/off again ex has lied to me countless times this past year, but everytime he comes back to me and promises to change, I take him back because I see the good in him and truly believe he has good intentions. But, not anymore. We are currently trying out a friendship and seeing where it takes us. During this time, he hopes to gain my trust back. The thing is, I just don't know how I'm ever going to trust him again.
