Kanks, first of all, a good topic of discussion. You really didn't miss much yesterday and I'd say it's good you waited till today to open this discussion.
Love and trust go hand in hand. In any relationship, in fact, a certain level of trust is required. But then, trust is dependent on another factor as well: truth and it's communication. I never really followed KZK too closely but I remember catching this episode where Anurag and Prerna have an argument over what the basis of a relationship is: Truth or trust? I'd say the foundation of any relationship has to be trust but for that trust to be maintained, truth is essential.
I agree with you mostly on this. Truth's vitally the sickest thing to extract out of people, even your significant other at times. If truth lays the foundation to trust and all that you put it, Pia does not have many ideas of Abhay's truth, which is why just maybe, her distrust in him is reasonable for now.
Honestly, I am disappointed in Pia today not because she's angry at Abhay or because she said hurtful things to him but simply because she never gave Abhay a chance to explain himself. Her reaction is human, like you said. She's angry because she feels betrayed but more than that, I think she's angry at the fact that she can't help her father when he needs her. She blames Abhay for that because she needs someone to blame. Rani pointed this out in another thread that maybe what's frustrating her more than betrayal is helplessness. Can't say that for sure, though.
She did not give Abhay a chance to explain, true. How I see it is this - you'd forgive feloniousness out of your loved one too, if they are decaying or fatal against you, there are chances you'd still let them in and give them a 'fair' chance to explain, which may or may not be deserved. But then, Pia was saturated at the time, and that speaks for itself - you can't think beyond yourself for literally anybody sometimes. She was exasperated and enveloped in serious anger, betrayal and shit like that. Hence, she never let Abhay explain. However, if you still see her - her manner tells you she's on her way to reckon, she never intended to not love Abhay after that.
Pia has been betrayed, there are no arguments there but what complicates the situation is that Abhay didn't really betray her. This is where truth as the root of trust comes in. Regardless of Sid and his threats, Abhay should've long back told Pia about Sid's reality and even the bite. Today, the truth came out for Pia in the wrong way. It shouldn't have been like this. Abhay would've been able to bring the truth out in the right way, thus, having a Pia who had the state of mind to understand what made him bite her instead of a Pia who is betrayed and so blinded with anger that she doesn't even want to listen to Abhay's side of the story.
Pia, easily, said that she can't trust Abhay because 'animals' aren't suppose to be trusted. She does appear to be insecure regarding Abhay's identity. She does trust Abhay, even today, but what she doesn't trust is the harsh reality which comes with Abhay's identity. She needs to be more involved in Abhay's world to understand it. That is the only solution to her insecurities and the only person who can help her there is Abhay, himself.
Yeah? Yeah. You make sense.
Coming to your question, I'd like to highlight the word 'enough' in it. 'Enough' trust. Some trust is required. If there is proper communication and openness, the 'enough' factor will automatically be attained and lack of communication will lead to betrayal, whether intentional or unintentional. But love will always be there. So I guess it's a YES from me as well.
You see what my drift is over here? Guess you do. Love's like shitty and self-destructive, we can't get through without it, sadly but it happens under any circumstances and sometimes, it manages to get out of the wire-gauge kind of thing designed by agents like distrust and lies, it just fights its way out. Sick thing.
A bit sorry for beating around the bush. I don't even know how much sense it made, anyway but I hope I managed to answer the question you were trying to ask :)
