We all have so many friends that it’s too hard to count exactly how many. But, if you had to narrow your list down to the ones you trust the most, you’d probably bring it down to no more than a handful of people. We’re talking the friends and family members you would reveal your deepest, darkest, most embarrassing and humiliating secrets to. Like getting arrested for a serious crime.
It’s one thing to not want your most-trusted friends and family to know what you got in trouble for, and how much trouble you’re in; it’s another thing to get over this embarrassment and tell them because you need their support and help. They will have all sorts of emotions – frustrated, angry, disappointed, confused. But if they are truly as trustworthy as you believe them to be, they will find a way to help get you through this difficult situation. They keep your secret as safe as they can. They will reach out to other sources for any other help and they may do so anonymously, like searching for a great therapist or rehab center. They will help pay for bail. They will help your family in your absence.
Knowing those who you trust most is very important, and they ought to know it before you get into trouble. What we mean is that you must maintain a very close relationship with them. They need to know how much they mean to you so that you do not take advantage of their kindness. Best friends and family members are one of the most key factors to have a happy life. So, if you haven’t talked to your best friend in awhile, go ahead and give them a call just to say hello. By keeping up with them, you’ll be able to count them as one of your most trusted people in life, and vice versa.
