This time, however, I'm thinking a bit differently and considering what trust actually "is." I understand it to be both emotional and logical. Emotionally, I expose my personal vulnerabilities. Logically, I assess the probabilities of what I might gain or lose depending on the previous actions of the other person.
Therefore, trust means being able to predict what others will do in certain situations; trust means that I expect reciprocity, even if it's delayed; trust is allowing others to take advantage of my vulnerabilities but expecting that they won't.
Have you ever tossed a baby into the air? Most babies love this and never consider that you would let them fall. That is trust.
Trust is a calm and confident blue.
It looks like an oasis in the midst of a slough.
It sounds like shouts of clear convictions.
It smells like the stimulating salt of the oceans.
It tastes like deep draughts of discernment.
It feels like faith in a confident comment.
Trust is the tender texture of temperament.
