Trust. A very fragile word. When it gets broken, one may not be able to mend it. Or it could be mended but it would leave marks that will stay forever.
Among the billions of people on earth, how many really value the true meaning of trust? Within a family, how much do the members trust each other? How about between friends, relatives, colleagues, acquiantances, or even the people in the street who just know each other by face? How about you? How much trust can you trust others?
Lucky are those who earn other people's trust; they can be confided to or seek advice from and are always a good friend and confidant. Pity are those who cannot be trusted; they can be friendly to everyone but can never be everyone's friend. And most of the time, they end up spreading unverified words and keep digging for the truth for they don't deserve to have it first-hand.
Some say trust is something that should be earned in time. But others argue that it should be given first until the person is proven not worth it. Whichever is which, trust is always one of the most important aspects of any kind of relationship. It involves honesty, truth, believing, understanding and expectations among other things. When trust is broken, it results to frustrations and disappointments. To regain it is subject to one's acceptance and forgiveness, but is doubtfully bound to be so as people usually learn their lesson fast enough.
It is therefore important that before one expects others to be trust-worthy, he/she should be one himself/herself.
