Trust Can Get You Killed
Sometimes trusting someone can put you in a life-or-death situation. Some people are willing to manipulate others for their benefit and advantage. I feel for those who have a kind and soft heart. They are mostly the victim of trusting someone so much.
Once in our life, we will experience betrayals that we will never forget for the rest of our lives. And it is more painful when we experience it with someone we have trusted for a long time.
The question is, where am I coming from? I am writing this piece to share the message and lesson I learned from a movie I watched weeks ago. The title of the film is “Copshop,” and I don’t know if you have already heard about it or not.
The story of this movie is about a policewoman who trapped herself in a police station because of a hired ruthless killer roaming around. She was in a cell with two criminals, one of whom was a shifty one. The hired killer was there to kill the other criminal, but the policewoman decided to make the police station a battleground.
Since the killer is trying his best to enter the cell and kill all of them, the two criminals decide to persuade the policewoman. They want her to get them out of their cells and help her since she has already got shot. She felt confused at first but decided to choose the shifty criminal. She even told him that she trusted him. When she called him out of the cell, the inmate went out to murder the hired killer.
But everything went messy because the policewoman charged the wrong prisoner. Then, she decided to let the other inmate out. He tried to kill the shifty criminal, but he got shot. When the policewoman knew something was wrong, she went out knowing that the man she trusted had betrayed her. In the end, it was her versus the man she trusted.
I cannot forget their conversation before they started fighting.
Policewoman: You could run.
Man: So you could shoot me in the back?
Policewoman: You already stabbed me in mine.
It is unfortunate to trust the wrong person, especially when it is a life-or-death situation. As I was watching, I learned so much about setting boundaries and learning the tricks of critical thinking when conditions are bad. We should not let emotions overwhelm us.
And sadly, the reality is here. There are moments when people who seem to speak nicely and sweet are those who only want to manipulate you. I saw it in the movie since the other inmate talked harshly, and the shifty criminal spoke with sweetness and a calm voice.
Sometimes we need to learn how to take consideration before having the final decision on whether we can trust someone or not. There are consequences in every decision and action we do. Do not forget to set boundaries and limits because sometimes, trust can get you killed.
