Do we trust anyone or anything unconditionally or is there an edge, and if we cross that edge there is no going back? Trust can be all the important things, yet sometimes it can also be all the insignificant things that make the difference – sometimes it can be about life or death. Trust can be rebuilt, but perhaps the fear of making a mistake is right under the surface. The short story “Crossing” was written in 2011 by Mark Slouka, who is an author. Mark Slouka’s short story follows significant themes such as trust and love.
Your friend has told you that they are having problems and because they enjoy your company in particular has come to you to let you know. You then tell someone after being told not to but only because you care. But the problem in doing so Is you broke their trust. But no where in the definition is there anything mentioning the use of trust or breaking trust. If you are to have trust with someone it must go both ways so if someone was to have given you as an example alcohol when you were under aged and you didn’t tell anyone.
Stories are a great thing to have in life because, they show the consequences of our actions, they help us see through the eyes of others, and they show us how to be human. Stories show the consequences of our actions. By reading or hearing stories they help you think things through, they show us things so that we don 't repeat them and, they help us respect what other people go through.

During our lives we all need to trust somebody and to be trusted . From the very early age we realize what trust means; parents are the first people who makes us understand that notion. But they are not the only people who we learn trust from, as schools have a great role in teaching it to us as well. We trust out teachers, school principals and they trust on us and our parents. That is how we establish community build on trustworthy relationship.
Another very important passage that Schwall uses is towards the end of the story. Schwall says, “ and you’ll remember his wet grin when he is older, and his memory is gone… the way the survivor gurgles and kicks at his blanket will make you think of the cold water pool, the slice of the water, distress and jubilation so similar in the chest.” (346) Here the reader reads about the husband reminiscing on the trip to the Gellért Baths. The scene itself is clearly in the future when the father is weary and old, needs a wheelchair to get around, and is living in a nursing home. The husband though sees the fathers grin, a wet grin at that, and thinks back to the baths. He thinks back to how the father looked jumping into that pool of ice cold water, and how it made him
Ernest Hemingway once said that "The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them." He clearly knew that the only way to know if you could trust someone is to give them a chance to break their trust. The theme of the story, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi, is to know people before you trust them, for not everyone can be trusted. The author first develops a theme when Charlotte tries to give the dirk back to Zachariah he tells her that she may never know what might happen and that she needs to keep it to stay safe.

People will not believe you, even if you speak the truth, if you always lie. Trying to rebuild that trust will take a long time. In conclusion, everyone lies in one way or another and not all lies are intentionally told to cause harm. In Ericsson’s The Way We Lie, she provides the different examples of lying and why we do it.

This was a theme shown in both books. It’s hard to know who to trust when you have a secret to keep. Allie was unsure of who to trust because she doesn’t know what happened that night, and she can’t even trust herself. Both girls have people telling them that they can trust them, “Detective Weeks shakes his head like I’ve disappointed him somehow. “You have to trust somebody sometime, Allie.
