When trust is broken there is a time of confusion. Promises once held as unbreakbale are found shattered and we have to recalibrate our thinking. Sometimes we lash out at the person or institution that broke the trust. Sometimes we try to do something that will correct them and fix the problem as we see it. Sometimes we just disengage.
In a world where it seems that trust is lacking in key areas, what if we worked at building trust. Wherever we are, whatever relationships we have, whatever industry we’re in, what if our first work was to build trust? It won’t be perfect every time, and the bond might not go deep, but at least something will be there. And who knows, we may find new friends along the way. Whatever the case at least we’ll be focusing on the forging we need the most.
