I have noticed that a lot of people today do not have confidence in others, what about you? do you trust anyone? If your answer is yes or no tell us why!
Of course !! I do. I trust the person I love the most because there cannot be love without trust.
Yes, I trust. However, trust should not be given at random. Hand trust to the wrong person/people and it can hurt, break, you.
I'm a very TRUSTWORTHY person, but unfortunately, not very trusting. It takes a lot for someone to gain my trust.
I've been hurt in the past, and I frequently have my guard up, but I'm still a friendly person
I have trusted people all my life, and the few let downs I have had don't matter to me.
Trusting people has given me a rich and rewarding life.
Earnest, I'm a bit like you. My husband calls me a "Pollyanna" because his basic approach is to trust no one!
I'm not totally naive and I don't take silly risks, but my general approach to people is to look on the positive side. The world is a much nicer place if you look at it like that, and (like you) the few let downs I've had are a small price to pay.
Nice Marisa! The only way to fly! I went on holidays for a couple of months leaving a 14 year old in charge of my very busy retail outlet. I had one guy who was 38, another 78 both happy to work under him.
He had his own shop at 18.
I always take two things into consideration. Actual ability to do the job and passion.
As for strangers, I don't bring up their kids, don't have to go home with them, so I simply assume they are marvelous and treat them accordingly. Works for me.
That not only takes a lot of trust, but a lot of courage as well.. Most 14 year-olds can't even seem to tie their shoe-laces together without direction.
Kudos to you for being such a good role model to that young chap.
He was a street kid before he came to work for me, but he had passion for learning about motorcycles and a good amount of common sense.
At 14 he could, buy motorcycles, sell them and do engine rebuilds. A good start. He was also brilliant on the counter serving customers.
Saturday mornings 6 of us would be serving 3 or more customers each.
We would acknowledge them when they came in, ask what they needed then collect it out of stock while serving the others. A wonderful friendly atmosphere. I miss it.
Good for you. Most people have such a decent soul that even if they fail it isn't for nefarious reasons. I like trusting people, especially young people nothing teaches trustworthiness like being trusted. I would trust my sons with anything, everything. I would trust most of their closest friends. It is affirming to find that most people are trustworthy.
I trust people until they are dishonest! Then I will still be friends, but will be more cautious!
Most people are trushworthy... there are those few who make the rest bad!!! But... one bad apple doesn't spoil the whole bunch.. not with people!
No.... all you can do is trust that people will disappoint you and learn how to forgive.
I trust certain people with certain things. My husband with my children, me with my money, and my girlfriends for happy hour!
It is as the old saying goes: Trust has to be earned.
But, there's a difference between respect and trust - I respect everyone until they give me a reason, and I trust nobody until they've earned it.
I trust everyone until they show that they cannot be trusted.
I distrust everyone until they show that they can be trusted...
*sighs* Because I really hate people...
I live my life on this "Don't trust anyone until they give you a damn good reason to"
I prefer to trust everyone, they are likely to live up to it in my experience.
Well, there are lots of complicated pressures these days that folk can cave in to(compromising principles)
