Explore the value of Trust
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
I think that we may safely trust a good deal more than we do. We may waive just so much care of ourselves as we honestly bestow elsewhere. Nature is as well adapted to our weakness as to our strength.
Henry David Thoreau
Relationships of trust depend on our willingness to look not only to our own interests, but also the interests of others.
Sean A. Frontz
The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.
George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
I doubt that we can ever successfully impose values or attitudes or behaviors on our children certainly not by threat, guilt, or punishment. But I do believe they can be induced through relationships where parents and children are growing together. Such relationships are, I believe, build on trust, example, talk, and caring.

Me, The Coos Bay Best Western Motel And GrandpaSubmitted by Anonymous
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to find one more person in our world who is genuinely kind and caring. It was about 11:00 p.m. when my telephone rang. The caller ID showed the number of a Best Western Motel. Normally, I would ignore this type of call, letting the machine pick it up. For some reason, though, I...
A Position Of EmpowermentSubmitted by Michael Bruno
This story of empowerment came from my involvement in Boy Scouts.

My hero is my Grandfather. He was by far the sweetest man I have ever known, and would do anything to protect his family.

Trust is setting someone free knowing they may hurt you and having the courage to do it anyway.

Trust is earned over time and not purchased. Once it is earned it can be difficult to lose.
Charlie Kropp, Illinois
Trust everyone, and you will be happy. If people abuse your trust, no matter what- the fault is on them. The lesson to learn from it is not that you have trusted the wrong person, but that you have trusted them to do the wrong things.
Josh, SLC, UT
Trust is hard to regain in a relationship that has failed. But trust is the number one most important quality of a relationship, and if it cannot be repaired, the relationship will fall apart again.
Just like a trust fall. You have to know how to trust the person that will catch you when you fall backwards. You are relying on them for their support.
Eli A., Canada
Believe in someone and know that they can do it.
