“My love is unconditional.  My trust and my respect are not.”

After getting home today, I ended up thinking what an interesting concept trust is for many reasons.  The reason I even pondered such a thought was due to something that took place online.

Yesterday I ran into a thought someone shared that had to deal with trust.  Thence, while getting some work done it occurred to me that trust is one of the very pillars of emotional bank accounts.

Trust allows for relationships of all types to grow; trust fosters comfort; trust fosters a certain level of understanding, deeper understanding; trust allows for individuals to not get stressed out for whatever reason; trust, ultimately, is a significant deposit into emotional bank accounts.

The statement I read could be the equivalent, at least to me, of, “I-got-your-back-no-matter-what.”  That’s a level of trust that’s not easy to arrive too.  Was what I read intended like that?  I have no idea, though it seemed like it.  What I do know is that the statement was based on trust, which is the Rosetta stone of this blog post.

In all honesty, the statement made me think about a lot of things revolving around trust.  That’s the thing, trust filters in everything in life, so much so that it’s actually taken for granted at a deeper level.  This is because usually, we all give and take various levels of trust like candy on Halloween, and since this type of circumstance happens nigh on auto-pilot, not a lot of thought is given to it [1].  But trust has many ramifications that seep in countless directions.

Trust is what makes friendships grow; trust is what makes communities grow; trust is what allows nations to be established; trust is what ultimately allows progress to take place to the utmost extent.

Without trust, without one of the pillars of individuals and society, growth cannot be had; without trust, society cannot stand firmly upon its foundation.

And nothing great can stand too long without a proper foundation; for cracks will irrevocably take place within the foundation, and then those will affect the rest of the structure.

But don’t trust me on any of this, nay.  Trust yourself and find out if the above makes sense, and what other ramifications can be had from such a concept.


[1] The fact that trust is handed out ‘easily’ might seem wrong at first blush, but let’s ponder a bit.  Don’t you trust a teacher, even without knowing them, with your child?  Don’t you trust a pharmacist to know everything about drugs, without ever questioning them?  Don’t you trust a police officer when they arrive on a scene?  Don’t you trust a politician to do the right thing?  Okay, am being facetious about the last one, since most politicians aren’t deserving of the level of trust that’s imparted at them, but the prior individuals are to some extent.

People don’t actively wonder if they’re going to trust a doctor, teacher, lawyer, pharmacist, etc. they just do itThat kind of blind trust can backfire more often than you realize, except it’s never seen from the lens of trust, which is why it’s never talked about, yet alone pondered at length.
