“Trust.” That act without a doubt a very noble one.. but you know, what many people do, that they call “trust,” is actually giving up on trying to understand others. And that has nothing to do with “trust,” but is rather.. apathy. There are countless people out there who fail to realize that apathy is a far more devastating act than doubting others.
People SHOULD be doubted. Many people misunderstand this concept. Doubting people is just a part of getting to know them. What many people call ‘trust’ is really just giving up on trying to understand others, and that very act is far worse than doubting. It is actually ‘apathy.’
This is one of my favourite scene in Liar Game: The Final Stage.
I think I’ve posted the GIF for this before but not as clear as this. I like how Akiyama seems so concerned that Nao might not believe in him so he had to emphasis her to trust him. Akiyama knows what Nao is like. She gets swayed really easily in believing others.
