I don’t believe that “once a cheater, always a cheater.” Do believe the statement “Never a cheater, but check back tomorrow?” You know, Tiger Woods cheated with, what? Thirteen? Fourteen women? I’ve lost count. You don’t think each of those women were single? You don’t think they each had some man in their life sitting with their wheezing hearts on their laps, patiently staring at a phone and waiting for a text?
I have total faith in a human being’s ability to change. It’s not a given, of course. But I would rather have faith and be right one time out of ten, than to live a life condemning my fellow men and women for the crime of being human. We are all guilty of that crime, after all. We are all victims of our nature.
Love takes courage. I know that sounds corny. But loving someone is not for those with weak stomachs. The great explorers never knew if they’d reach land. Inventors fail with gusto. Musicians have to play a lot of sour notes to find the sweetest ones.There are no guarantees when it comes to love. It’s a huge risk. The man or woman who finally invents the personal jet pack is going to suffer bruises, broken bones, and probably a concussion or two. But damn, what about the moment that future pioneer zips up into the clouds. Courage is placing your hand on the ugly face of fear, an pushing the f@#kin troll on it’s ugly ass.
Trust him. You have no choice. Be weary. One can forgive and not forget. But if you lose faith in redemption, then you’re saying that you can’t change. And you can. You are. Just by trusting this guy.
Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
