Do not take trust for granted

Trust is something that takes time to establish between individuals.

Trust can make us vulnerable, and, unfortunately, we often tend to take trust for granted. When our expectations aren’t met or when others take advantage of our trust, it can be quite disheartening. For instance, we all generally trust our family members and friends to have our best interest in mind, and as a result we may entrust them with our money or property. However, many disputes arise from these kinds of situations, and it is in everyone’s best interest to jointly keep careful records when it comes to anything to do with money and property in order to avoid conflict down the line. In our dealings with our close family and friends, it is important to maintain clear communication about our expectations and avoid making assumptions, and in this way we can protect our precious relationships.
