Can you really trust people? If you drop your wallet on the ground, do you really think people are going to return it with everything inside? No, because people will take either most or all of your money. If you are super close with someone, feel like you can tell them everything, and they break your trust by telling your deepest secret, most people would not trust them again because they broke your trust. You want people to be able to trust you, so you should be thoughtful, amiable, and honest to someone in order to gain their trust. If you are mean, disrespectful, and not honest with them, you are not going to earn their trust. That is why honesty is a very good characteristic to have. If you do not trust anybody, you could always trust your family because they will stick with you through it all. They may not want to, or enjoy it, but they will support you. Treat people the way you want to be treated. People should be able to think of you as a reliable, dependable person. If you do not treat them with respect, you will not get treated with respect back. If your closest friend were to give you a present, and later on you discovered it was stolen, would you return it? You do not know where they got it. They could have robbed a house, and gave you the present to hide any evidence of them stealing it. All in all, be careful with whom you trust and tell your problems too, not everyone who smiles at you is your friend. “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair” -unknown.Trust is very important, and it matters to everyone.
