Hold my hand

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, “Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.”

“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.

“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl. “If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs…

Trust is what allows us to have meaningful relationships with other people; without it, we cannot converse without wondering whether the person speaks truthfully.

You would be unable to believe what another is saying.  I do think there are different levels of trust and that being skeptical of many others is wise.  Without any trust at all, however, life becomes quite lonely.

To trust emotionally, its where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. In practice, trust is an emotionally and logically act. I trust you because I have experienced your trustworthiness and because I have faith in human nature.

We feel trust. Emotions associated with trust include companionship, friendship, love, agreement, relaxation, comfort.
