Trust is a big issue in relationships, whether it’s with a spouse, co-worker, parent, child, etc. Many people in a relationship automatically assume that their spouse would never cheat or lie in the relationship, because they want to be able to trust them. When a man and women get married, they vow to each other not to cheat or lie, so that’s where the trust part goes into place.
Trust is a big word, but you have to prove to the other person that they have your word. When the man or women break that trust, there is no point in having a relationship anymore.
A co-worker is much different. Working with someone, you have to trust that they are going to help you with a project or just simply being there for them, as a friend. You can easily break trust with a co-worker, or a boss. Your boss has to be someone that you can trust with your work, or to even pay you for your work. Co-workers have to trust you also with the work you do, because if you haven’t done your part, they’re not going to be able to do theirs because they are still waiting on you to do it. Then your boss steps in and you’ve lost your job.
When you’re a parent, you want to have trust in your kids. You want to be able to let them go out to the movies with friends, or even go out on a date with a guy. But when they break your trust, it’s a whole other ball game.
Having trust in your kids is scary at times, because you want to always have them under your wing and always make sure they are okay or doing the right thing. Once they break your trust, it’s hard to regain.
At times its going to suck because they want to go out with friends and you can’t trust them to do the right things so they’re stuck at home on a Friday night while everyone else is at a football game, because their mom and dad have trust in them.
Driving is similar in many ways. When a 16 year old kid starts driving all by themselves, they want you to have a lot of trust in them to know that they are doing the right thing and that there safe. Or they are where they’re supposed to be at.
Your gut wants you to call them 24/7 to make sure that they are okay, but you have trust in them so you don’t.
Having trust in your child is a big responsibility, it can be scary at times, and can be difficult. When a child breaks a parent’s trust, it makes them feel bad about themselves. Because they know what they did to make their parent lose it, and they want to be able to prove that it won’t happen again.
Regaining trust takes time and effort. It can also take days, weeks, months, maybe even years before its fully regained.
Trust isn’t a toy that you can play around with and then put back on the rack when you’re done playing with it. It’s something that modifies you. It can make or break you in every way possible.
