Trust, the Hidden Part

TrustHandsThe eighth post of this blog, published over six years ago, was about trust. It was deceptively simple. I referred to it as a belief and an assessment.

It’s also nothing more than a feeling we like. We will grab trust when we need it. Not objectively. Rebuilding a broken trust is quite difficult because our expectations were not met, even though those expectations likely were more based on our need for the feeling of trust than a quantifiable assessment it was warranted.

That’s not to say there are no other factors. It is to say that we become biased by what we need, and one of those needs is to feel safe – to trust.

Once you realize this, it makes it awfully hard to really trust again. But we try anyway, because we need to.
