TRUST is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation.
A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call. She answered, "Public Utilities Board." There was silence. She repeated, "PUB." There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she Heard a lady's voice, "Oh, so this is PUB. Sorry, I got the number from my Husband's pocket but I do not know whose number it is."
Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just "hello" instead of "PUB".
Trust is not just essential in personal relationships but in all walks of life. Everyday we rely on the information shared from our fellow colleagues & we then do something based on this information. I guess, this is again an example of trust. There are times, if one hears different stories from various sources about the same thing/s but the stronger factor will always be trust factor which will help you take a decision on the problem or issue. So be sure you are true to what you do, since you trust someone & that someone trusts you which builds relationship.
