But although you may not avoid feeling the sting from betrayal, you can heal from it. Understand that it’s not your fault. It’s not you. It’s humankind.
Instead of allowing the other person’s behavior to negatively shape your life, learn to grow and evolve from the experience. Move on and trust those who you can count on.

Trust is everything.
There's no doubt that trust is quite possibly the most important quality a relationship can have. Without it, even the strongest love is bound to fall apart. Luckily, the best relationship trust quotes can help you understand.
It can start with little nuances. Maybe he takes just a little bit longer to text you back than usual. Maybe she doesn't seem to care so much about your fantasy football team anymore.

In a strong relationship, you will probably recognize these behaviors as a normal part of settling into more of a routine and relaxed life together. Without trust, however, even the smallest things can seem like a "make or break" situation. While that may be exciting, it's also not healthy.
At times, it can be tempting to stay in these types of relationships. We think that uncertainty and drama is what true love is made of (thanks a lot, Hollywood). But the reality is that, in the long run, they will not make you happy.
Sure, drama in relationships makes really good television and movie storylines. But real life isn't like a movie. And honestly, its better that way. Not everything in life has to be a dramatic life or death situation.
With that all being said, life is still messy and can be overwhelming at times. So it might feel like we are stuck in the middle of a dramatic scene. But the best part about life is that it goes on and you always find a way. Either the drama broke your relationship or made you stronger.
Either way, you figured it out. You have to do what's best for you.
So what exactly is trust? Why is it so essential for a loving and lasting partnership? To answer these questions, look no further than these 11 relationship trust quotes and wise words straight from Charles J. Orlando:
1. Dig deep and find out what really happened.
"Betrayal is the worst... and the key to moving past it is to identify what led up to it in the first place."
2. You know what they say: "Time heals all wounds."
"There is only one way to rebuild trust once it has been broken: over time."
3. Never underestimate the benefit of the doubt.
"If you love them and they love you, trust them and don't worry about it. If you don't trust them, what are you doing with them?"
4. Don't blame yourself for trusting them. Shame on them for taking advantage of it.
"Love doesn't hurt. It may sting sometimes, but if it hurts, it's because you have given your trust to the wrong person."
6. Trust is like a mirror: once it's broken, you'll always see the cracks.
"The best way to not need a second chance in a relationship is to be thoughtful enough not to screw up the first one."
7. Appreciate what you've been given.
"Trust is a gift. Don't try to exchange it for something else."
8. And count on this successful formula.
"Trust, respect, humor, spontaneity, passion, love, empathy, and acceptance, minus indifference, equals successful relationship."
9. Let go of those who let you down before.
"Trust comes easily when you recognize that the person you love today isn't the same as the people from your past."
10. It might not make much sense to you, but she "just knows."
"After years of marriage, I have learned one thing: Trust a woman's intuition before a man's undeniable logic."
11. Remember, sometimes there can be too much of a good thing.
Honesty may not always pay, but lying always costs.
Reputation, trust and credibility are assets no organization can afford to lose and the surest way to lose them is to lie.
Building trust is like building a tower, stone by stone. But no matter how high or strong the tower seems, if you remove a stone from the bottom the tower will collapse. That’s what lying does — it removes the foundation stone of trust.
Lying often gives us short-term advantages and lies that remain undiscovered (as most do) may provide short-term benefits. But there is no security in secrecy or concealment. Every undiscovered lie, even a seemingly small one, is a landmine capable of destroying trust.
Lies breed more lies to cover-up. Winston Churchill spoke about each lie needing a bodyguard of lies to protect itself. Even lies we justify by our good intentions — the ones we call “white lies” — can blow up in our face when discovered. The lie often looks very different from the perspective of the person lied to than the person telling the lie. How many of us would give permission to people we know to “lie to me whenever you think it is for my own good”?
We can rationalize, justify or try to minimize our lies to ease our own conscience but usually such defensive behavior adds insult to injury and deepens distrust. How many lies can you tell before you are a liar? How many lies can someone tell you before distrust sets in? Once we discover that someone has lied to us we look back on past conversations and ask: “What else has he lied to me about?” Can you lie to a liar and not become a liar?
We can apologize, ask for forgiveness and promise to never lie again, but we usually can’t obliterate the scar or even fully heal the wound caused by our lie.
We also can’t try to disguise our lies in half-truths or concealment. While we might use other terms like deception, distortion, misrepresentation, insincerity or a lack of candor the terminology isn’t important. At its root, lying is intentional dishonesty, deliberately trying to make a person believe something that is not true. It’s not only dishonest though, it’s disrespectful.
It’s also a very bad strategy. Lying to avoid problems is like getting drunk to forget them. It’s a temporary solution with the worst sort of hangover. Your problems are still there, but they are even bigger because now you can’t be trusted.–Michael Josephson
This is Michael Josephson reminding you that character counts.

“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farmboy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.
Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.
A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.
A tree says: My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust I live.
When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.
A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one's suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.
So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.”
