what if you grew up in a home where you heard “you can always trust me, i’ll always be there for you”…and then everyone who told you that, abandoned you. would you understand what it means to trust?
what if you grew up in a home where you were told ” i’ll always love you”, but then they stopped loving you when you were no longer cute or you were no longer fulfilling their dreams. would you understand what it means to be loved?
now you find yourself an adult, meeting new people, and creating new relationships, and you meet the person of your dreams, and he tells you that he will always love you, always be there for you, and will never do anything to hurt you… and you believe him…he’s your dream come true. your heart knows you have been looking for someone to trust and to make you feel complete…so you believe him…you want your dream to be real and you marry him.
your relationship is beautiful. he’s the ultimate provider, kindest, most thoughtful man. but then he begins to struggle. he finds himself lost, sad and alone. you still love him, but his behavior is no longer the behavior you once knew. he tells you one thing, but does another. do you believe his heart, which says he loves you, or do you believe his actions which leave you feeling abandoned. no longer loved?
