Erosion and deposition
This is how trust gets eroded. Promises made, then broken.
Drip by drip.
Until we learn to ignore the promises and put up with whatever we get.
But it’s also how trust is created. Promises made, and kept.
Every time, drip by drip.
Until we learn to expect the best, and trust that we will get it.
Start small if you have to, but mean it.
