Splat!!!!!!!!

Now you have to imagine the above splat is like a water balloon splat.. soggy, sad, dissolving as it runs into an object that it is just not expecting...

Trust is something I give freely... easily... you would think that at my age I would know better... you would think that after what I have lived through I really would know better.. But I do have a very large hole in my suspicion gene so of course I trust...

Loyalty is something I live by... so when trust is broken, loyalty is damaged... handshakes count to me.. I grew up in the world where handshakes were solid, immovable, blood oaths... and so in the age of virtual friends and internet conversations .... internet virtual handshakes count in my book...

Promises are made to be held... offers only given when surrounded with truth and trust....

I found a dream a couple of weeks ago and pursued it... as I always do with too much joy and excitement full of trust and loyalty... believing that others live by their word, their handshake.. not change rules mid game... not remove truths from conversations..

Splat..... dream is no longer there... I was blind to the cards that did warn me of deceit.. right there in front of me spread over the table... 2nd card in the spread.. immediate influences.. The Moon.. Deception, Trickery, Dishonesty, Disillusionment... I should have understood but was excited and dreaming and forgot to listen truly and clearly...

So yet another lesson learnt... not all who appear as a "Friend" with offers of dreams are to be trusted... thankfully the lesson was learnt before the papers were signed...

I am glad I still believe in handshakes and know that mine still does mean truth and honesty and loyalty.

I will still happily answer the questions about my journey for free, I will still study hard so that in the future I can offer experience and knowledge to others travelling their journeys...

I will still have my dreams, but I will make sure I only share them with the holders of honesty, and loyalty...

Beware the offerings of "Friends" read print clearly and slowly.. seek professional advice... take time to contemplate the offers... save yourself the heartache of broken dreams and wasted money... I am sad that I found this out but I was lucky I did..

Very disappointing to say the least, but I am glad that you are not letting this experience change who YOU are as a person. While the deceptive one slinks away with their tail between the legs, you can hold your head high knowing that you have integrity xxx

Hey Cath! Cheaters are losers, and never rise to the top with integrity. Sometimes life's lessons are hard and disappointing....but they make us stronger and more aware and develop strength in our souls. Hold your head high, walk with confidence and shake with honesty. Thinking of you!

im the same. we come from a place where a handshake, words, our love and support, any/all equal the very CORE of our being.

stay strong and focused. fuck 'em witchazel. it just means you're better than them. but, what the hell happened?!?...

Thanks ladies!!! I believe in Karma so I am not worrying at all they will get exactly what they need to help them in their life journey..

MQ01 territories suddenly reduced so they could make a quick buck from selling off the other half, when lawyers advice before signing was mentioned the attitude changed to demanding money quickly..

unfortunately I can not warn others openly...

Too bad you can't speak more about it-but yep-always check everything...trust nobody.
Sad-but unfortunately that is the case in this world-especially with cyber world!
Keep on trucking girl-something will come along!
And hell yeah-karma is a beauty!
