If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

but when it is, then there is no fixing it. Or is there?

What do you do when someone very close to you has broken your trust? Do you shut them out? Forgive them? Confront them about it? Is there a right or wrong way of dealing with such a matter?

I've been reflecting on these questions the past two days, and i still don't know how to answer them. Yes, i think it is hard to be betrayed, and lied to, but if you've never been in such a situation before, then there's no saying how you'll react.  All of a sudden, you are taken by the heat of the moment, your emotions are running high and you feel helpless. Astonished, vexed, heartbroken. It feels like a roller coaster of emotions with no stop/off button in sight.

What do you do? Who do you talk about it to?

We always hear the saying " Trust must be earned", and we all think we know what that means, but do we?

We learn early in our lives that we were sent to this life to be tested, but in such a situation, it's hard to say if there is a solution in sight. The light at the end of the tunnel is barely visible, but there is hope. Eventually you'll see the light. Eventually you'll know the answer. Eventually, the broken can be fixed. You need patience and a strong faith. A teacher in middle school used to say to us whenever we complained about the amount of homework we were given "Allah is with those who are patient".

Patience is key to any solution. Patience will get you through it.
