Life is a lesson I love this saying, “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair.” It rings so true in so many ways. I’ve come to learn that there are 7 things that life has taught me about trust, and all of those things cannot be reflected in the words of famous authors. Simple beautiful!
Happy life learn to trust again
- “Love all, trust a few” Shakespeare
The key phrase here is “trust few”. It’s easy to love and care about people. It’s even easier to do no wrong to people, but loving and doing right by people doesn’t mean that you have to give them the pin number for your ATM card. Bottom line, be careful who you trust.
- “I am not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”Friedich Nietzsche
It’s really simple. Sometimes honesty is hard, but in the end, the honest man wins the trust of his fellow-men. Being a trustworthy person means telling the truth, even when it’s hard. Often times, an honest approach to a problem can lead those involved to trust you to solve the problem.
Trust you can have a happy life.
- “Trust instinct to the end” Ralph Waldo Emerson
We all know that gut feeling. We feel something is right, and we can’t rationalize why. Sometimes we have to trust that gut feeling. After all, if we can’t trust ourselves, who can we trust?
- “One should never trust a woman who tells her real age” Oscar Wilde
Leave it to Oscar Wilde to use sarcasm to convey his point. But it’s true. Sometimes we trust too much. We can’t trust the world with all of our dirty laundry. Especially now, once something goes digital, it can’t be taken back. Leave your personal business off social media.
- “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” Maya Angelou
Although it’s hard to recover from a broken heart, trusting that love will come again, can and will, lead to happiness. How many people have recovered from divorce and gone on to have a happy second marriage? How many people have recovered from addiction and gone on to counsel others to do the same?
- “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”
What may seem small to you could be huge to others. Make sure to protect the trust that others have invested in you. You might need that same type of trust someday.
