7 inspirational quotes about trust

Quotes about trustToday I offer you some quotes about trust, dear reader.

Trust underpins any relationship, if it’s to have any longevity. Strong relationships are built on trust. However, trust is something that can take years to establish and only seconds to destroy.

One thoughtless act is all it takes; one moment of weakness. And once destroyed, trust is almost impossible to win back, certainly to anything like the same degree as before, because people can never quite see you in the same way again.

To secure someone’s trust is a privileged position to be in because it means you’re held in the highest regard. To them you’re someone with integrity and you’ve won their respect.

So trust is a very a special thing and, once established, it should never be abused. Not if you value a relationship and/or your reputation, at least.

If you’re in a relationship and for you it’s not all you would like it to be, then it’s perfectly reasonable to be honest with someone, explain the situation and move on. They may be upset by your actions but they’ll appreciate your honesty, in time.

However when you truly value a relationship and you’ve won a person’s trust then think long and hard before you consider doing anything that might destroy that trust. To do otherwise would mean, almost certainly, you’ll regret it.

And remember this; everything you do, however small, honest or dishonest, says something to the world about your character. So how do you want to be judged; trustworthy or otherwise?

In my opinion, it’s better to be known as someone who’s honest and trustworthy, rather than someone people feel they cannot trust.

No amount of personal gain will compensate for having a poor reputation. I don’t think so anyway.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about trust to help you reflect on its significance in relation to your reputation.
