Trust is confidence in ourselves, others and our sense of the Divine. Trust takes a risk; in the absence  of certainty, it assumes that goodness, truth, honour, fairness or ability.
Trust is the very thing that everybody in this world desires, or at least should desire from one another. Who wants to have a friendship or relationship without trust ? Nobody does. Without trust, there is no friendship, and without friendship, there is no love. It is a special thing to be trusted by someone. To be told you are trusted is an even greater feeling, but one should never take advantage of that trust.
Trust is also something that must also be placed with people you don’t know all that well, or even on people whom you don’t know at all. For example, we have to trust teachers to be teaching us the right things and grading our work fairly. In terms of total strangers, we have to trust doctors to take care of us and give us the right medication or perform surgery, etc. All in all, trust is a very important thing that we must be able to place in different people. In relationships, trust should be valued highly and seen as a true bond between two friends or mates.
Trust becomes resilient when it is grounded in reality – when it recognizes the imperfections and yet sees through – line of goodness that lies beneath and beyond them.

  1. I know this is a older post but I am doing catch up reading lol. Good points on trust. Once broken though very hard to regain, not impossible but very hard to regain especially if the trust broken is with someone you have a intimate relationship with (spouse/lover etc.)
