Depends on the friend. I have two friends that I trust implicitly.
you state the obvious
but its a good reminder.
I have gotten to the point where I hardly trust anyone anymore.

If there is no one left to trust that means there is no one to turn to if I need help.
It is not wise to trust your friends if they are not trustworthy. But why would you have friends that weren't trustworhty? And why don't they trust you.
It is materialism in decay, at the stage of disregard of right and wrong. It's a natural course. Look at the youth.
Quote:I have a number of friends that I trust implicitly.
The question of whether it is wise to do so or not has never needed to cross my mind.
"IF" they were to betray that trust, the friendship would probably never be the same,
but I would not regret that I had given them my trust.
Do u think that Martha Stewart regrets being candid
with the friends who testified against her
before she was convicted of a federal crime ?
What r the chances that she was considering
the the wisdom of trusting them, during her vacation in federal prison ?
It would be a very sad world if we could not trust anybody.
OK: the world can be happy:
u CAN trust people; the question is whether that is WISE ? ( like drunken driving ? )
I am not sad,
tho I make it a point not to trust anyone more than necessary.
So is part of trust
expecting your friends to perjure themselves in your behalf?
Is It Wise to TRUST Our Friends ?
Risky; like juggling chain saws
( depending on what u trust them with )
and when there 's a falling out... ??
Wud Martha Stewart have gone away
if her secretary and her friend had not given damaging testimony ?
I suspect that she TRUSTED them;
I doubt that she trusts them anymore.
There r innumerable other examples of friends who have better loyalty
to government than to their own friends.
Remember NY Supreme Court Justice Hortence Gable and her daughter Sucreet ?
Does that tell u anything about loyalty ?
" Wise is he who learns from his mistakes,
but WISER is he who learns from the mistakes of OTHERS. "
Don 't trust anyone with more than u r willing to LOSE.
