Yes, I really try to be a trusting person and to gain people's trust and to keep secrets or anything else like that.
I trust my very closest friends and of course family.
Yes, one of my friends have broken my trust because they have lied to me about things.

I, as many, enjoy the company of friends and acquaintances. Because of this pleasure, I always entitle practically anyone to my trust. I have made many friends using this effictive system and plan to utalize its power over my years. People enjoy the fact that they are able to be trusted to a certain extent and therefore develope a likeness for the presenter of trust. As stated before, I trust many, practically all with minute number of exceptions. To my knowledge, I have never been driven in a relationship to relieve someone of my trust. Trust is a very influential and powerful virtue in life.

Trust is best defined as a quality in someone or something that makes them reliable. Trust is a very important attribute in a person. Everyday, I strive to maintain or prove to the people around me that I am a trustworthy person. Normally, I will trust everyone until they prove to me that they aren't reliable and can't be trusted. So far, I am very fortunate to say that no one has broken my trust yet.

I would say I am a trusting person. I can keep the darkest of secrets for long periods of time. I have never been let down by a friend who cant keep secerts. Like dennis said I to injoy the company of friends. I trust my friends and of course my family.

I guess i would say im a trusting person most of the time although im not perfect. I trust my friends and friends. Im sure people have broken my trust before but none come to mind right away so they havent been major.

Yes I would have to say that I am a trusting person, however it depends on the situation and the person. I trust many people such as my team, my coach, my friends, and my family. These are major support systems in my life and I think it is good that I can trust them. Yes there are people who have broken my trust, such as my sister when she steals my clothes, but there is no one who has broken my trust on a major level. I agree with what Joey said.

I think I am very trustworthy person. I trust my friends and my family so much. There have been a couple people have broken my trust and i doesn't feel good. They are the ones you wish you never. I agree with dennis.

Im a trustworthy person i can only trust my best friends and my family because i have grown to no they are trustworthy. Also i think it takes a lot to gain someones trust and its for some a hard think to keep.

I am a very trusting person. I, like many of my fellow students, trust my family, my friends,andjust about anyone who is kind to me. However, last year, some of my friends kept some secrets from me that have affected all of our lives. For a longtime, these things affected me so much that functioning at school was hard for me. Even now, those friends have not fully gained back my trust, and when they talk to me, I have to wonder if they are telling me the truth, because I can never really know.

I agree with dennis k, trust is really important in my life, and lke adama, I have been hurt by friends. It is sad to know that I can never fully trust them again.

Trust is still a big part of my life, but I am a little more careful about who I trust because of everything that happened between me and my friends last year.

I believe that i am a trusting person. I mostly trust my closest friends that have known me for along time and know me well, and i know i could trust them with my life. Someone has broken my trust befor, and because they were just acting to be my friends and whatever i told that person they would tell everyone and exaderate everything and make it sound so much worse.

Trust is a wonderful and beautiful feeling that every human posseses.To me trust is like a glass rose. It is a beautiful thing but when it is misused or mishandled the rose or in this case trust is shattered and sometimes can never be rebuilt, seeing how bad the damage is. I personally think I am a trustworthy person. I always try to help others do the right thing. I trust many people but once my trust is broken depending on the severity it can never be regained. Not to long ago an old wise man told me that my ultimate downfall would be that i trust in all people. If that is the case i would be happy to have trust be my ultimate downfall for in heaven i know i would have triumphed over all odds and trusted people in the end.

For some people it is very easy to open up. But for me i seem to have a hard time. I really need to get to know that person and become close to them to actually be able to trust them. Last year I was really good friends with some people and then they went and hurt one of my very good friends and then it all went down hill from there. Ever since then I have had a very hard time opening up to people cause I am scared that the same thing will happen and I will be left hurt and confused again.

annies said...

It depends on the person. If I don't feel comfortable telling that person a secret, but they're a good friend of mine, then I won't tell them. Even if it is a close friend, but they have a big mouth then I won't tell them anything too deep.
I trust only the people I know won't go telling people everything I just told them. Especially my mom. I tell her a lot of stuff and I have no feeling that she will tell one of her freinds about it. Other people in my family, not so much. But I do trust my cousins, they're like my brother and sister.
I think everyone has gotten their trust broken; whether is was a boy, a parent, a friend or anyone. But I think it is horrible to get a relationship built up, and then you tell that person something and tell their other friends.

I am an easly trusting person but just as easly as it come its lost. I trust only my best friends and my family members. my trust has been broken many times mostly by friends however. I have trusted friends with secrets just like any other person but they have told another asn so on.

I agree with what brandonh said about only trusting those you know will respect your trust.

I think i am a pretty trusting person. I am no the kind of person to back down on what i say i am going to do wheather it is for my family, or my friends. It kind of takes me a long time to trust people at first, but the people I do trust are; my mom,sister, brother, uncle, cousin kelsey and my aunty. These are the people in my life that have not let me down once in my life and i know they never will. My real dad has broken my trust, i trusted him to be there and to help me grow up but he didn't, he left.

adama said...

I think I am a trustworthy person. People who tell me stuff can trust me and know that i will not tell anymore. I trust my mom,dad, brother alex and my best friend aaron who just moved to NC but i stll trust him. I think the only people that break your trust are the ones you ask not tell anybody a secret and they go behind your back and tell people.
