As we travel along life’s journey, we form relationships. Often we seek bonds with those who are stronger than ourselves so that we have someone that we can learn from and rely upon. The challenge we face is making sure that whoever we trust is actually trustworthy, and that they won’t take advantage.
In my life, I have seen the meek lifted because of the strength of a trusted loved one. I have also seen great tragedy, because people of great capacity who should have been trustworthy, used their abilities to destroy others.
Some hurt lasts a long time and some relationships have eternal rewards. So it’s important to remember to “Choose your friends wisely.”
