Trust



Trust is the act of putting faith in another person, having confidence that they will act with honesty and integrity in relation to you. You believe that they can be relied upon, and you feel sure of their good intentions toward you and your own interests. When trust is violated, it can be difficult to repair, depending on the severity of the breach and how often it may have happened in the past. Since trust is a central part of all relationships, finding ways to both maintain trust and mend it when it’s broken is essential to the health of our interactions with family, friends, romantic partners, and business associates.
