To Trust or Not To Trust?

>> Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Who can you trust in this world? And how do you let those that you know and trust that you do trust them? It can be a sketchy situation where you have to walk that fine line between where you do trust a person and you don't trust a person and explain to them in the nicest of terms where that line is drawn. You may trust them to mow your lawn but you may not trust them to watch your kids while you and your significant other go out on a date. There are levels of trust that are achieved as a friendship/relationship progresses and you can't rush the process.

So why all this talk about trust?... I have a few friends that I tell that I will trust them until they give me a reason not to but I think that they think that I trust anyone willy-nilly. And trust me, I DO NOT! Trust is given out very carefully by me; I hold onto until the last possible second when I realize that I must trust this person with this situation. And if, by chance, a person betrays my trust, it takes a very long time to earn it back. Trust does not come casually to me.

Well that's my two cents on the issue...

Well, I hope I've never give you a reason not to trust me yet! :) Don't worry - if you only trust me with showing up at Starbucks, that's fine too! :)
