When men trust you endeavor to sustain it and remain trusted. Everything that will last and transcends time must be based on trust and truth. Whatever exists with failed trust will eventually fail. Trust is a currency for the longevity of a healthy relationship, worthy assignment, and anything of excellence in life.
When people commit things of importance to you, it is because they trust you. Wherever and whenever an assignment is assigned to you, sustain the trust so you can be trusted for a higher and better assignment. The challenge with most folks is that they trivialize certain things and assume it doesn’t matter.
Dear, for a child of God, everything matters. If you are given a task and you misuse, abuse, and disuse the privilege, you are failing the test of trust for bigger things. Nobody enjoys working with men with questionable character.
A relationship that you broke because of trust issues will cost you more. It is bad to break trust, but it is worse to keep failing the test of trust.
When trust is broken, whoever is the culprit has great work to do in rebuilding the trust. First, if you have trust issues, you must admit it else you may never come out of it. Admittance is proof you need help. Doing this will enable you to eschew every tendency of justifying your wrongs with excuses. Whenever you see anyone justifying their errors, it is because they are not ready to turn a new leave.
Trust can never be rebuilt when excuses are given for not keeping up the terms of the trust. If you have failed in sustaining the trust committed to you, do all you can to rebuild it by not only apologizing but by changing the lifestyle that makes you betrayed whatever has been committed to you either in a relationship or an assignment.
In addition to the above, your company matters. Surround yourselves with people who have integrity. Men who can tell you the truth when you goof. If you have issues with exaggerations, you need a friend that won’t tolerate that. For instance, you quote figures beyond reality, someone close to you should be able to call you to order and say no, this is the exact figure. Trust me, we all need men like that in our lives. Be careful with men who are comfortable with your insincerity and exaggerations. Sometimes in rebuilding trust, there are some relationships you may need to take a leave else you will keep falling to distrust.
Fixing trust issues can cost you time and never blame people for not trusting you too soon; you will have to give them time to gain the courage to trust you again. Even as building trust requires time, rebuild it requires more time. What trust has built for many years, betrayal will pull it down in a twinkle of an eye. If trust has been invested in you, guard and nurture it because it cost more to rebuild lost trust.
Judas Iscariot needed to rebuild trust with Jesus; He was forgiven but couldn’t imagine the pain and shame to overcome for him to rebuild trust (Math 27:1-10). No matter your state endure whatever needs to be endured to buy back your integrity anywhere. It is important for your rising.
