Teaser 031: An Example of Betrayal


I talked to Serena about trust, that it's the inverse of fear, that you can never trust anyone you fear. Trust is a leap of faith, a belief that at any time in the future the one you trust completely will not hurt you intentionally. It is always possible to hurt someone—one you love and want deeply—unintentionally, because it's impossible to know any one completely. What you must do, when you hurt someone unintentionally is to apologize and remember it, to never do it again, because now you know it will hurt the one, and to do it again would be intentional. That is betrayal.
