If there is one commonality in all of humankind, it could easily be the fact that we have all been hurt, felt betrayed, and lost the foundation of trust within a relationship. Trust is something sacred, and when lost the dynamics of a relationship can change completely, and often do. Sometimes it is a conscious shift, other times it lays at a subconscious level - regardless, the damage may seem irreversible. Trust is what makes us open up completely to others; it is what makes us our most transparent and therefore a solid foundation of trust makes for the best relationships. This may be our parents, our friends, our spouses and partners, or our siblings... So, what happens when that foundation has a crack in it? How do we repair it and work toward healing and forgiveness?
