Crazy Little Thing Called Trust

TRUST –  as defined in the dictionary states – “something committed or entrusted to one’s care for use or safekeeping, as an office, duty or the like, responsibility,or charge”.  It is a  simple 5 letter word that we really use every day and don’t think much about it.  Phrases like –   I trust you will make the right choice; I trust you are well; I trust that you will clean up after yourself.  The list goes on  and on.  We don’t  think of its significance, it is a word, part of our vocabulary.  But the one sentence that it is used in and  has the most impact  is – I trust you.  Those three words have such an impact on people and their lives – I trust YOU.  It means you are confident enough to give someone the responsibility of looking after something you care a great deal for, something that you love, something that you would give your life for if it meant  that thing was safe.  They are powerful words.  So powerful that when that trust is broken, the effects are inexcusable.  The anger, hurt, fear that is felt cannot be described.  To see the pain caused is heartbreaking.  Those three words can make someone feel like they are on top of the world when spoken, but when broken can cause havoc, feelings of confusion, deceit and hate.
