Jeri-Ann and Chas were having breakfast at their favorite restaurant on the beach one Sunday morning when an incident triggered a series of nuclear reactions. All those emotional neutrons and protons smacking up against each other set off a chain reaction that seemed to come out of nowhere. Jeri-Ann caught Chas in a white lie. He liked to go out drinking with his buddies and because he knew she didn’t like it, he didn’t want to tell her the truth about where he went the night before. This was a hot button issue for Jeri-Ann. Chas was lying to her now because he wanted to avoid a fight but for her it was a deep betrayal. They were at loggerheads and needless to say the conversation devolved into an invective-laced, below the belt fight. Weeks later it was still not resolved. This battle was about trust; the foundation split and had not yet healed. Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall was not the issue; it’s was putting it all back together that was daunting. How could they forgive and make assurances to create trust when it was lost?
