Depends on how bad it broken. Did he take a piece of gum from your purse without asking? Or did he cheat? WE don't know the whole story, but normally I say if he cheated - forgive him, then forget him.
You can get it back but it would be a very difficult task. This is because you will lose all the interest of believing in someone else with the fear that he or she will betray you just like the previous one.
You can forgive, but you will never forget. This is how we learn the lessons of life for ourselves. When people show they are capable of a thing you can never put anything past them to return to that thing.
It's a very long hilly road. You can forgive but unless you get amnesia. It's hard to forget. He may nit have cheated but define that word. It starts with a thought but if you act upon it in any way I'd say is crossing the line. Others may/ may not share this view but those that don't prolly too cross the line.
Dealing with this now. One friend brought a girl he was kinda dating to another guys house. A third guy came over that has a snorting problem and disappeared with the girl. Friend #1 opened a door and saw the girl on top of friend #2. Now I'm choosing sides and have to side with #1. Guy code.
It depends on how you broke the trust. When someone trusts you, it means that they imagined that you'd behave in a certain way when in a certain situation. And that they relied on you behaving that way.
But if you've never given them that impression then they were the ones who made a mistake by assuming wrongly that you would. In those cases, though they may say you've lost their trust, they'll usually realize it was really their mistake and forgive you. And they'll avoid putting you in that situation again.
Although, if you understand what they expected you to do and promise to change and keep that promise, you'll get their trust back.
Some people say yes, maybe that's wishful thinking but I say no. Trust is the back bone to any relationship and once its broken it'll never be the same. it'll always be in the back of your mind. driving you absolutely insane.
