Depend upon yourself. Make your judgement trustworthy by trusting it. You can develop good judgement as you do the muscles of your body – by judicious, daily exercise. To be known as a man of sound judgement will be much in your favor.

Grantland Rice

I can trust my friends These people force me to examine myself, encourage me to grow.


If we really want to be full and generous in spirit, we have no choice but to trust at some level.

Rita Dove

Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.

  1. I trust way too easily…often don’t learn…and get hurt often.

    Why do I do this? Do I have this belief that most people are good? Yes, probably.
    Funny, but the people I should trust the most…my family…I trust the least. Yet, if they showed one ounce of proving that they really cared, and loved me…I’d be dumb and let them back in….and get hurt all over again.

    Guess I am insane…trust the same people over and over, and I expect a different outcome.

    Yeah, gotta work on that one.

  2. I also believe most people are good. I think we all have to start out with a bit of trust for each other. I feel the same way about respecting each other. And the relationship goes from there What I have had to learn and keep rememboring is what extent I can and can’t trust people based on their personalities, quirks, etc. So,that involves getting to know someone and acknowledging that they would be there in some situations, not others or not at all.

    I also have to recognize what my expectations are and if they are realistic. Sometimes I think/want/hope I can trust someone and that they will be there but it doesn’t always work out. That’s when I get hurt.
