Trust is a very simple word yet not easy to find in others. Perhaps experiences of disappointment and loss can explain feelings of distrust in a persons heart. The dictionary’s definition of trust is — reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety of a person or thing, confident expectation of something, hope. A person on whom or thing on which one relies.
If someone were to keep a promise, that person is trust worthy. However when done with bitterness, there actions show regret, the trust slowly weakens. Faith in that person also weakens and a decline in the relationship/friendship surely begins. Sometimes the words a person speak can also lead another to believe they are “trusting” or not. Eventually somethings gotta give, right? You either take the risk and trust regardless, or you “watch” and “observe” there every move…..every word. Sometimes the truth takes longer than you would like to reveal itself….. especially for the heart of the matter. Sometimes you end up playing Russian roulette.That’s what trust is these days. When it comes to trusting anyone, you are playing Russian roulette with your heart. Well, yes it depends on the relationship for whom you are trusting. You must have RESPECT for the person in order to TRUST them…… and vice versa! Nevertheless, you always risk something of yourself. That’s life! Life is full of twists and turns! We will get scammed by someone but hopefully not everyone. Eventually, you’ll learn a valuable lesson.
