Trust in me in all you do
Have the faith that I have in you
Love will see us through
If only you trust in me....
-Etta James "Trust in Me"
You may or may not be familiar with the few lyrics above, but when I think of trust, this song usually comes to mind. We're here, and now venturing into LOVE BIGGIE #2: TRUST!! Without trust, you will always have doubt and worries about your relationship. It's very critical that you have faith in your mate and know that you can trust them and also live a life where they can trust you as well. When you know that your mate has your best interest at heart, it's easier to do a lot and discuss a lot.
Relationships can be tested by the actions and words of outsiders and this could break your relationship if you let it. If you hear things about your mate from someone else, do you believe them or believe your mate? TRUST is a MUST. If you ask your mate a question and they give you an answer, do you trust or doubt their answer? TRUST is a MUST.
You will find that when trust lives in your life, home, and relationships, problems are less common. I trust my boyfriend in all aspects and believe that what he does for me and shows me is the truth and it's the only truth I need to rely on in our relationship. I know that he trust me as well and I DON'T and WON'T do anything to change or jeopardize this. Once you do something to cause your mate to lose trust in you, it's very hard to earn that trust back. Trust is just like a chain and when a link is broken, it's hard to hold anything together.
Sometimes if we've had issues trusting family members and friends growing up, it makes it harder to trust your mate in a relationship. You have to learn to accept that everyone is different and everyone will not let you down. While people in your past may have done so, you can't hold this against those in your present and future and assume that you can't trust them. I encourage you all to work on trusting yourself and others, because TRUST is a MUST!
"To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved." - George MacDonald
