Trust

How do you recover lost trust? In a person? In an idea?

Bonus: If someone lets you down or betrays you, how do you learn to forgive? And can you possibly learn to trust them again? Why or why not?

Trust is a massive gift you can give someone. On one hand the trust can be something very small and on the other it can be something very big. Ie trusting someone to post a letter can be a small amount of trust and something big could be your life partner etc.

For me to have lost trust or belief in someone then they must have done something pretty major (or something that i believe to be important to me) to have lost it. An example of this happened to me at work this week.

I can learn to trust again definitely. But it’s not something that will be granted over night. It’s something that the person is going to have to earn. Not only earn my trust but also earn my respect for them at the same time because I think the 2 come hand in hand

George McDonald once quoted

To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.

  1. This is how I feel about the subject. “Trust is like a vase. Once it’s broken, though you can fix it, the vase will never be same again.” Anon.
