What is trust?
Trust is the capability and ability to effectively engage, communicate openly and honestly, and to carry out honest intentions. Trust is exposing your true feelings and emotions in an unfamiliar environment. Trust is the natural belief in your own intuition, other people's words, deeds and external processes that we take part in.
Trusting someone, or a process begins with the belief in it. Without a belief, trust is almost impossible.
The will to believe, is the spark that ignites the flame of trust. This flame burns in every being until it is diminished—or extinguished—by an event that leads to a broken trust.
Generally, we want to trust other people and to trust processes. The difference between the two:
Trusting people requires a two way effort, while a process deals with trusting the unknown. These processed can be internal or external. Internal processes, for the most part we have control. External processes are situations or circumstances that are usually out of our direct hands, making belief and trust a bit more difficult.
Does trust and the will to believe come naturally to people, or is it learned? Or is distrust natural?
Trust is a connection between two things at 100%. When trust is broken, it is difficult to rebuild the essence. The internal process is difficult to rebuild once knocked down as it requires a belief along with consistency in feelings, words, and actions over time that can build again the bridge of trust.
Trust is a “tabla rasa”, or clean slate. People must trust the first time until there exists a reason to not trust However, this reason should not be feared or searched, out of paranoia it will manifest. Live openly, but with the guard always up, and allow our-self to trust others as well as processes, both internal and external.
