Trust and belief are two ends of a straight line.

You trust someone, you have faith in them; they break your trust, you lose faith.

When you believe in someone though, no matter how many times they break your trust, you still have faith in them.

In a way, faith is the currency of trust.

I’m dirt poor.


Bharath Upendra considers himself a regular Joe who unapologetically talks about the usual and obvious. Writing to him is like an uninvited guest who still hasn’t left and to whom he’s gotten used to anyway.

You can find more of his writing at Bharath’s Banter where he speaks his mind and writes his heart.

    Bharath’s insightful writing always teases the mind to think harder, coaxes the heart to recognize what beats within. Trust, belief, and faith are a trio that are difficult to appease. But we try our best to have them all at once. But the reality is often the opposite of what we wish for. However, acceptance can be the greatest treasure and if we’re poorer for it, then so be it.
    Congratulations Bharath!

    You are right indeed. Difficult sometimes to forgive someone who lies often and to still maintain that level of trust. Many things in life just come down to faith. Great piece. Blessings to you and congratulations on a wonderful write. 🦋
