Every relationship is just a big honking leap of faith.
Rory is totally right. Of course, when she said it in Gilmore Girls she was talking about dating. And obvioulsy that requires a huge leap of faith, especially when you’ve been hurt before.
But I think every relationship is a big honking leap of faith.
It is a big leap of faith to trust a new friend. It’s a big leap of faith to let an old friend back into your life, especially if there was a reason they weren’t there for awhile. And yes, it’s a big leap of faith to start a new dating relationship.
It’s a big leap of faith to open yourself up to someone, whatever the context. And no matter how careful you are, there is always a chance you can get hurt. That new friend may decide they don’t really like you after all. That old friend may betray you all over again. And that guy might break your heart in new ways.
Then again, they might not. You never know until you try.
Sometimes you just gotta have faith.
