Trust is confidence in the honesty or integrity of a person or thing.

I am talking about ‘Trust’ in relationships.

Trust is the most important component of any healthy relationship.

Without trust any type of relationship becomes dysfunctional.

The relationship with Parents,siblings,relatives,friends,lovers,office colleagues and the clients,supposed to remain loyal and loving all the time.

Trust is the building block of Love.

How to know whether you can trust the person ?

“Trusting is hard.Knowing who to trust,even harder,” Maria V.Snyde

This is difficult to answer.However you start trusting the person to begin with,before that, remember you should be trustworthy first.

To be trustworthy,you must be reliable and stick to the commitments. Trustworthiness is the ‘feeling’ you create in others.

“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.” Ernest Hemingway

So be trustworthy and start trusting people.In the process you come across two answers.

“When you fully trust someone without any doubt,you finally get one of two results: a person for life or a lesson for life” unknown

Does Trust take time to build ?

Does it come in a flash? or Does it takes time ?

Trust does not happen in a flash. It takes time.It takes years build. It takes time and effort to build trust.

‘Trust takes years to build,seconds to break,and forever to repair.” unknown

When you should not trust ?

Very simple !

When you start to wonder whether you can trust someone or not,that is when you already know you don’t.      unknown

  1. Yes Philo,no one can disagree with you.
    Any relationship is a DEAD one without TRUST!
    As a matter of fact,I would sacrifice 99 best qualities in a man for that just one quality called TRUST, if i am asked to choose between two.
