In any relationship – whether between man and woman, parent and child, or even friends or colleagues – trust is very important.

It is difficult to live with people if you do not trust them.

I would rather trust somebody instead of having to check their mail or phone records, or secretly listening when they are talking.

I would rather trust a person near me not to gossip behind my back or not to do bad things to me.

A colleague tells me that where he worked previously the staff shared a fridge. His colleagues had told him that there was one person who would spit in your food if you disciplined him.

We rely on other people to make us food in restaurants, and at work, to bring us water and tea. How will you relax if you do not trust these people?

In the olden days, you had to take the first bite of the food you had prepared, in front of your guest, as proof there is no poison in it.

Sometimes people say the truth is too harsh. Lies are worse, because when I find out the truth I will feel that you take me for a fool.

I hate dishonesty.

I move from the premise that you are telling the truth and that I can trust you.

I am not able to live with people who are dishonest. I trust that my child will not lie to me.

I hate liars. Rather tell me the truth and I will deal with it.

My son says our family likes to gossip. When you leave the room, they talk about you.

I really do not mind. People will always have an opinion about you. Although, it is better that they tell it to your face.

I will not have sleepless nights wondering about what people say about me.

I know myself and although I value other people’s opinions, I cannot do anything about it unless they tell me.

Sometimes our spouses work with people of the other gender. How will you relax if you do not trust them?

Many cases of divorce are caused by a lack of trust.

Some people will carry false information which make spouses fight. The other spouse might be suspicious to start with, and the false information might just ignite the jealousy.

Other people do not want to see you happy, that is why they will make you suspicious of your spouse.

Be aware and do not let them destroy your relationship with the person or people you love.
