When you decide on whether or not a person deserves your trust, what are some of the things you take into account? Do you think about their track records with others and who they may have “stabbed in the back” in the past? Do you think about their character and what kind of person they are? Are they dependable; reliant; good looking? I ask because I feel that “trust” is something that our generation is obsessed with, but can’t really define or
clarify. Why is that?
Trust is allowing someone to hurt you, but believing that they never will. Having someone you can trust—someone you can tell everything to and not worry about them blabbing it to anyone and everyone—is something that everyone wants.
I personally trust the person who never has to explain to me how trustworthy they are; the person that never brags about how good they are with keeping secrets. I find myself trusting people like that because they have nothing to prove to anyone. These people don’t even really know how trustworthy they are because to them, it’s just a trait that every person should possess. So, it’s obvious enough to say that I don’t trust that many people because rarely do you find anyone like that.
The bond you have with a person that you can trust is a beautiful thing. It’s something that every person should get the chance to experience. You really have to put yourself on the line when it comes to trusting someone. It’s never a safe or easy thing. But it always finds a way to pay off in the end. Either you find someone you trust, or you learn a lesson along the way.
