Day date: “The best proof of love is trust,” Joyce Brothers (1927-2013) Psychologist. We receive many clues reminding us that we love. We feel tender, warm, concerned, thrilled. We think of future plans, common interests, a shared web of connections. We protect, we promote, we encourage, we engage, we challenge, we comfort. We resolutely commit to another’s wellbeing. We trust. Trust can be cautious. Trust, like friendship, is often an accumulative process. We trust in a small way and discover if more trust is warranted. If so, we trust again. Trust builds as actions reveal integrity. Trust grows as experience confirms our hopes. Trust can be absolute. There are times when the depth of our certainty is so great that trust is unquestionable. We trust in the ultimate kindness of humanity, in the fundamental balance of the universe, in the goodness of the divine. This kind of trust is entrusted to that which is greater than us; it is reserved for that which is eternal. Trust can be broken. Trust can withstand disappointment, but cannot abide violation. Broken trust can linger; it can erode our confidence in our ability to make choices and decide our best path. Rebuilding trust requires change- change that must be demonstrated. Sometimes the riskiest aspect of love, rebuilding trust can either become a new source of painful scares, or a resource of repaired faith. Trust can lead to deepened respect and enduring intimacy.
