Trust can be the Mundane Safe or a Courageous Risk

“Trusting a person does not require evidence and if there is evidence then it’s no longer trust because it’s already revealed the truth.” – Chinese Drama

Trust is something that we say as a joke even though it is one of the most serious words in our entire vocabulary and the “most” important in relationships. It not only considers risk, truth, and a leap of faith, but it also reflects somebody’s personality. It requires you to put almost everything on the line. Therefore, many people will ask someone to display “trust” before they are able to trust them. This is indeed necessary and true. But on the other hand, if you are able to trust someone solely on their personality or something abstract rather than concrete, then you have discovered what trust really is. Although, we use this word everyday in our conversations, we rarely think about what it really means. Thus, it is “safe” to trust somebody with concrete evidence because you’ve already revealed “truth,” but to truly trust someone requires courage and adeptness.

Love those around you and trust those who see through you.
