Double crossing or being betrayed isn't something strangers can do; it takes a friend. Any thoughts?
It has been said that a person is usually hurt by someone they know and love. It can be personal, physical, psychological, or mental . What is the value of having any friendship if It can carry this weight? If it is the risk of being betrayed? What does it mean for the person to betray their friend and what does this say about the person who does it in the minds of their friends. How does a relationship continue with betrayal?
Con men make their living by getting "strangers" to trust them!
You'd be amazed at how many people still subscribe to the:
"I'll trust anyone until they prove me wrong" philosophy.
Ever so often you hear about someone being "in love" and sending money to someone they met online but never laid eyes on in person.
Having said the above it's not about the "strangers" or "friends". It's about the individual and (their) "trust criteria" selection process.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
We get to choose who we're going to trust and whom we won't trust.
If someone is constantly being betrayed or double crossed by friends or strangers it's probably time they re-examined their trust criteria process. Figure out what made them feel they could trust that person.
One has to allow people to (earn their trust) over time by demonstrating honesty and integrity. Be careful who you say "yes" to.
"In order for someone to ride your back (you) have to bend over."

How much do you care about what others think about you?Let's assume you're a decent human being. Do you care what complete strangers think about what you wear, what you read, how your hair is, or whether you're in a relationship or not?
