Just like a muscle, trust is a thing that needs to be exercised, used regularly, practiced often, and refined until massive. During your adolescence, you can hardly lift the weight let alone perform a bicep curl with perfect form, and that’s exactly the same as the adolescence period of a relationship. In the early stages, trust has not been built yet, but through time and action that muscle (trust) can be gained (earned.) With trust, only through time can one strengthen that muscle. Only by repeated trustworthy actions can you truly gain someone’s trust.
And just like with muscles, trust can tear apart in an instance, God forbid.
No matter the cause, whether by accident or self-induced, once trust is broken it is very hard to restore.
Duston Holloway lives in Dallas, Texas. With his ex-girlfriend, the two share a son, Easton Holloway.
But it was with his girlfriend, now his ex, that he caught her in the act of cheating. He returned home one night from work and found his then girlfriend in bed with an unknown man.
Instead of yelling and screaming, and maybe indulging in some violent actions, he decided to keep it calm and take the high road.
So what did he do? He took selfies. With the sleeping couple in the background of course.
Yes, he performed a mini photo shoot with the cheating couple in the background. (And yes, he did try to wake them up…but only AFTER the photoshoot.)
So rather than vent his frustration through the use of yelling or violence, he decided to lambaste her (and the cheating guy) with the use of social media.
Duston said that he tried to wake the pair up but they were so drunk that they were unresponsive to his voice or taps.
He posted the incriminating pictures on his Facebook page and it is safe to say that he is no longer with her.
On his Facebook page, he stated that: ‘I did tap her to wake up but she was drunk as skunk passed out.’
He continued on by saying that: ‘I was gonna ask if I was gonna have to sleep in the spare bedroom and what kinda breakfast the dude like lmao.’
It is extremely reflective of character when someone can act so calmly (and with so much humor) during a situation that would incite hate and anger in almost any other person.
To show their support, many people have sent him personal messages commending his behavior and throwing words of wisdom and encouragement his way. Kudos to Duston for taking the high road and as the old adage goes: there’s plenty of fish in the sea!
