The Value Of Trust.

"Trust is like a vase. Once it's broken, though you can fix it, but the vase will never be the same."

Building Trust.

When it comes to friendship and relationships, loyalty is built over time. Let's look at the meaning of the word trust.

Trust

Webster's Dictionary defines trust as "assured reliance on the character, ability and strength of something or someone."

Oxford Dictionary defines trust as " a firm belief in reliability, honesty, veracity, justice, strength of a person or thing, reliance on truth of statements without examination; confident expectation; accept without evidence.

When it comes to matters of the heart, trust is an essential ingredient. Trust and communication are vital to any healthy relationship. For some people, trust is hard because they have been hurt in the past. As a result, they have built high walls to protect themselves. Those walls are there to guard your heart, but if you continue living within those walls for the rest of your life, you will never be able to experience true love.

Trust is essential to true friendship, however, if we can count the number of close friends on the fingers of one hand, consider yourself very lucky. Can you call everyone on your facebook page friends? Probably not. Some people claim to be your friends and will probably stick around during the good times, but can you really count on these people when the going gets rough? Is your best friend someone that will tell you things about yourself that you don't want to hear or will she be a two-faced and stab you behind your back when you turn around?

"Don't count the number of friends you have, but the number of friends you can count on."

Cutie Pie as you call yourself, you accused me of an affair with a person in Africa on Triond and that betrayed the trust I had with you about J being a great friend to me.
Trust by far is the ability to have credibility for what you preach rather than just a jumble of words which make sense. You have to feel it, love and believe it.
I lost my trust in you as a friend, you may not have taken me as one but I never make an enemy, that is why I comment too.
I was abused and called a troll and what not and it was at your behest, my best friend called me an Alien.
Today, I have involved his real wife as his behaviour is getting out of hand and i cannot break the trust that he has in me by playing the part of the wife. So I have handed over the mantle of the friend to the REAL wife by emailing her everything in details and highlighting that you were the one who insighted her husband against me.
For the record, the wife and child have met me before and I would never betray the vows to their marriage and more so to the child as I have walked that road myself.
So Marlene as you so call yourself, please practice what you have written above and then advise people on what trust is.
J will deal with his wife directly now as I step out of the picture behind the scenes to play my role in the front line just as I am doing now...
Lies run sprints but the truth runs marathon. I will have my day and so will you on the pivot role you played on this. Trust your instinct not people woman!!! People betray, instincts and the Creator never do.... Peace be unto you as we speak!!!

Such a good article on trust. True friends are few and far between. Friendship takes work just like any relationship. Yet, we eventually learn who is trustworthy and who is not. We pray for those who don't know what trust is but we can't let them remain in our world. Good article as always Marlene CP.
