Trust and Faith are funny things. I've been thinking about both of them lately. What do they mean, and how do they play out in my life? Why do I have faith, in who/what do I have faith? Who do I trust, and what makes me trust them? I typically give everyone I meet a 100%, and depending on our experience together, it can go down from there. When it does go down..it takes awhile to get it back up. Sometimes it will never get back up.
At some point trusting someone else has little to do with that person, and more to do with how much I'm willing to deal with, and put myelf through. I like to protect myself, but I don't think I can truly get to know people, and live in other's lives without making myself vulnerable to being let down and hurt. Above all what makes me continue to trust people is I know God is there, when I've fallen, or been let down. He is there, and I can always trust Him.
