When sorry is not enough, meaning and explaining that you were wrong is the precursor to a gift of love to the one you hurt.
Once the foundation for forgiveness is in place, similar to on-going nurturing of the young plant in fertile ground, trust will have an opportunity to grow. However, you must treat it like a candle and protect it as the most precious good forgiveness has placed in your hands.
Trust is an emotion and belief and not a consequence of logical action so that those of us that (sometimes) operate with rationality and sequence find it difficult to grasp and hold on to once it seems lost. Yet we live on the basis of trust and yearn for the few we place it in.
With love to my ladies Anika and Paula
