Lately, I have been having trouble trusting people. You see, I’m the kind of person who thinks that one should always be there for her friends; that a bad time is the perfect time to be a friend. I do not know if it’s just me, but why do I keep on getting disappointed with the people I trust so much?
Sometime this year, my friend asked to borrow money from me for two reasons, the more important reason was because a part of her house got caught up in this big fire. I was a little short myself because my sister was sick that time. However, without second thoughts, I lend her the money since she told me she was going to pay me in 15 days.
To cut the story short, it has already been 5 months, and every time I ask her where her payment is, she has all the excuses in the world. I see her having a vacation here and there, eating this and that, and even buying a new phone.
I feel frustrated, betrayed, and stupid. Not because I still am not able to get my money back, but because the person who did this is a FRIEND.
TRUST. You get one shot at it. When you break it, it’s gone. And even if you try to repair it, a part of it will always stay broken.
I’m not perfect. I did things I was not proud of. I broke some of my promises.
But one thing’s for sure, I’d never put my interests ahead of my friend’s.
