Trust, what is trust? The dictionary meaning of trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. The second meaning is, confidence placed in a person by making that person the official owner of property to be held or used for the benefit of one or more others. I think the definition of trust is when you allow someone to have procession of a private object or secret. Also when you have faith or belief in someone or something.
There are many different kinds of examples using trust. Some include, a personal connection, friends, family, short story, or society. An example of trust in your family would be, trusting your mom to help you with your homework, or trusting your sibling with a necklace. Trust with friendships is a lot harder than it is with family in my opinion. A personal connection I have had with trust is when I told a friend a secret of mine and then she told three other people which caused a lot of drama, but when I told my sister she never told anyone.
Did you think that trust could be life changing? What if you had to trust an enemy? Say for instance you were hanging of a cliff and the only person that was there to save you was your worse enemy. In this situation you would have to trust that they would not let go of your hands, right? Just in the same manner, the enemy would have to trust that once they pulled you up, that you would not just toss them over. I’d say this would be the rarest trust spot you’d ever be in, however it is a possibility.
Trust can be a funny thing. One minute you could have complete faith that your trust bond will not break with someone special. Then the next minute you could be drowning in embarrassment because your trust bond was broken. Your friend could over load you with trust or not keep you in the loop because they have no trust in you. You just never know what kind of journey trust is going to take you on.
In the end the most important person to trust is yourself. In fact you have to trust yourself on a daily basis, if you think about it. I trust myself when I make choices without my parents help. My mom allows me to watch my sister on my own when she goes out, because she knows I’m responsible, which is a factor in trust. If we didn’t have trust in ourselves we wouldn’t have come this far in the world.
