How many hours do you need to spend with someone before you trust them? Or is it the quality of the time that really counts? One month- Two?
What about five years of a deep nurturing relationship? Then would you trust someone?
Pardon my vent, but my five year old has a sliver in her big toe and she absolutely refuses to have me look at it, even though I’ve taken slivers out before, even though I’m a nurse, even though I’m her mother.
She’s crawled up in a corner, convinced that this time will be different. There is no way I can handle this sliver.
Sounds a little bit like me.
