Trust


Trust

Lies break trust. This is obvious. But real trust is the ability not to necessarily trust others unquestioningly, but to trust that irrespective of what others do, one must continue to presuppose that trust must be given if anything meaningful in life is going to be accomplished. Trust is the bedrock of our communicative practices. Without trust we would not speak to one another, as we would never trust what the other had to say; likewise, we often are unable to trust ourselves. This is because have not emotionally matured enough to direct and contend with our own emotional erraticism. Real trust is only developed when we unceasingly bestow trust to ourselves and others, even when we fail to live up to what trust demands, so that we can prove to ourselves and others that we can be reliable.
