It's more fragile than glass. More valuable than gold. More rare than the rarest diamond.
If you break a glass, you have eleven more from the same set. If you lose a gold bar, more can be made. If you give a diamond away, you can purchase another.
Trust though, in most cases, is a one time deal. If you lose it, it's gone. And you can spend the rest of your life trying to get it back only to never truly regain it.
Sure, you can patch up the holes, but that's just it. There will still be some spots that you just can't cover up. And while you may have mended that relationship, that other person will alway be wondering-in the back of their minds-if you're telling the truth or not.
So, tell the truth and let that person be disappointed in you instead of lying to them and having them never be able to fully trust you again.
I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.-Friedrich Nietzsche.
