Trust me

So I have started to think lately about how much we don't trust. Anyone. We don't trust our government, we don't trust the kid who bags our groceries. Most of us don't even trust our significant others.  Meeting someone who is honest and open with you is such a rare thing these days, that you almost don't believe that person and go right back to the whole non trusting issue. Its almost harder these days to be honest than it is to be a liar. Almost.  Which makes me wonder. Where is the trust?

I pride myself on being an honest person. I am not perfect by any means and I of course do tell the occasional "white" lie. I am human. It happens. But I have learned that it is far easier to tell the truth and deal with what may come along with that good or bad, than it is to tell a lie. Because we all know that one lie leads to another that leads to yet another. I have a bad memory. I can't do it.

So who are we really protecting with all of our lies? Are we so selfish that we are more concerned with protecting ourselves with the lies we tell, then helping those who look for our honesty? Does the liar themselves benefit in anyway from lying to someone? Did our parents really know what they were talking about when they said that telling the truth would make us feel better?

I think you are so right about trust even down to the point of not trusting GOD. I believe people are doubting themselves and that is leading to not trusting other people. I believe, as a whole the morale of people is so low that no one knows what they will do and to be honest it is sad that people really never took the time to know themselves. I remember when i was a child my grandmother used to tell us to pray for a conscious and to be honest i never realized how important what she meant but with a conscious ( i think i am misspelling it) you are aware of your conscious, your boundries, who you are. GOD speaks to you through your consciousness, your awareness of who you are and where he is in your life.

i thank GOD you are a honest person and my friend
