Trust is an issue that seems to be straightforward.  We put our trust in our loved ones, friends, government, people we do business with, and all facets of life.  With our trust we come to believe that the people we put our trust in will be reliable in the things they say they will do.  It seems simple, people should not promise things they cannot fulfill.  But more often than not life isn’t so easy, people choose to breach our when they evaluate their individual interests.

I always saw trust as something mutually beneficial to all parties involved and I have had problems with trusting people I shouldn’t.  One of my failures is mistrusting people and obviously from the tone of this post, I was let down today.  I keep on trusting people and people keep on letting me down, especially when the issue has to do with money.  It is easy for me to never trust anyone again but I don’t want to view the world in such a dark manner.  I’m going to take this as a lesson and resolve not to give my trust to people too quickly.

From now on, whenever practically possible, I’m going to live by the words of Arthur Ashe, “Trust has to be earned, and should come only after the passage of time.”
