Trust is strong word that should not be taken lightly because if you trust too easily you will get burned. I try to give people the benefit of doubt, to give them a chance to prove them self worthy of trust.
It is the best feeling in the world to know when you can fully trust someone to do right by you in your best interest and not do something behind your back without your knowledge.
When a person tells you they have your best interests at heart, it can be tremendously reassuring or it can be a nightmare straight out of a Lifetime movie where betrayal is a common occurrence.
Doing something in somebody’s best interest is a sticky matter because it can get twisted in what the other person believes is in your best interest, especially when money is involved.
Trust is a powerful idea on its own, but when you combine trust with money it can be a deadly combination. It is also the ultimate test to determine whether or not you can fully trust a person, some people can justify anything when money is involved.
The problem is that some people are skilled with deception and lying. Sometimes it takes a long time to see somebody’s true colors, which is bad because many times people will say, “Oh she is so sweet and kind, she would never do something like that!”
Some people are like chameleons; they turn a certain color only when it suits them.
For example, when someone is all friendly smiles and sweet talk around groups of people, but when the sun goes down, watch out! The fangs are sharp and ready.
What you see on the surface of some people is only a front, a distorted view of what truly lies beneath. They are also like light switches; they flip on and off their true self, when it is convenient for them. Their bad side can be well hidden.
Trust is a difficult concept to master and the most significant component to all relationships among people.
Remember, to make sure you fully trust someone but don’t forget to love with all your heart. The best advice is to treat others how you want to be treated.
