Every relationship or bond is built on trust, without trust it is invalid. Trust is both an emotional and logical act whether in family, friendship, relationship, business or partnership.

Trust can take years to be earned and only a few seconds to be lost yet it is important for trust to be kept at the forefront of everything.

Heard of the quote ‘Trust is like an eraser, it gets smaller and smaller after every mistake.’

Now my question: Who is trustworthy?

They say time will tell if a person is trustworthy or not. I sometimes concur to the statement.

The only issue with ‘time’ sometimes is the damage that has already been done in a case where it wasn’t worth it after all. I think trust and betrayal are best friends and can’t do without each other.

trust is a better compliment than love
once is a warning, twice is a lesson and anything more than that is simply taking advantage.

Even with siblings where love ought to abound, anything is possible. I’m not saying there aren’t trustworthy people but they are rare. That’s why I say most times that ‘Trust’ is a better compliment than ‘Love’ because you may not always trust the person you love but you can always Love the person whom you trust.

If you find someone who is trustworthy, hold him/her tight because you have just won a lottery but if that person lets you down more than two times, once is a warning, twice is a lesson and anything more than that is simply taking advantage.
