16 TRUST

Art: Journey to you by Salaam Mohammad

Journey to you by Salaam Mohammad

Trust is one of the values I think we all (regardless of creed, class, ethnicity, nationality, religion) universally agree is very important to the health, maintenance and longevity of any relationship. Trust is the corner stone.

Trust

Trust cannot be bought; it cannot be stolen however it can be broken and lost.

Arguable I have heard some people say that trust can indeed be bought and stolen. I beg to differ. If one does manages to buy another’s “trust” is it truly trust they are purchasing or the illusion of trust. It is a delusion built with express purpose of influencing and misguiding others. How can real trust exist when one wilfully resorts to treachery, trickery and manipulation of another in order to gain it? That is debauchery.

What do you think, can trust be bought and stolen, and if so is it real trust?

How much is your trust worth?

  1. Trust can't be bought, But there are people "buying" the illusion of it.
    I believe trust is nurtured overtime and once betrayed CAN be regained - with equal amount of time as before.

  5. Trust, honesty are all earned. Once they are broken it's hard, though not impossible to re-establish.

  6. I think trust can't be bought. It is something that grows over time between people. As someone shows their character it is then u can decide whether they are trustworthy or not.

  8. Trust can not be bought. For me, it can only be gained through honesty and integrity. If broken or lost though, I'm DONE! Great post, Rap.

    1. Yeah its hard to turn back once it is broken, i guess the idea is not to turn back rather look forward? The trick to that is getting over the rift.
