TRUST is not something to be EARNED
because you can NEVER EARN it.
UNCONDITIONAL TRUST is like
It’s a GIFT.
In its pure, gracious form,
it is given without conditions.
Even when a person makes a mistake
or does a serious wrong,
the goal is still to TRUST the person.
TRUST means believing that down deep
the person has the ABILITY
to do what is right.
to make the right decisions.
It is motivating and confidence-building
to feel that someone trusts you
and you don’t have to figure out
how to EARN it.
It doesn’t mean that you have to stay in
a relationship that is unhealthy
or hurtful to you.
Rather, it means you TRUST
that the person has the ABILITY
to make the RIGHT DECISIONS.
It may seem difficult or almost impossible to do,
butTRUST IS SOMETHING THAT YOU GIVE
UNCONDITIONALLY AND GRACOUSLY.

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comment. I hope to see you again. Best wishes.
This is a thought provoking post. Your unconditional trust when I was a teenager changed my life, and I also know the credentials, years of clinical practice and expertise your post is built on, yet I still question the semantics. Could there be times it is more appropriate to hope or believe rather than to trust unconditionally? xx
Is there a time you would not trust that your children would not have the ability to make the right decision? They may not make the right decision but they could have. You trust that they are capabl of making the right decision. It’s important that they feel your trust even when their decision is inappropriate.
