Years to Build - Seconds to Break - Forever to Repair

Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair

Giving trust to someone isn't hard to do, but maintaining a trusting relationship with someone is very hard to do when a persons trust is broken.

It only takes one bad move to break someone's trust, and something that may have taken years to build, immediately goes away for many people.

Instead of worrying about having to repair the trust you have broken, we should make the effort to honor those who we feel deserve our trust in the first place.

We can give honor by doing things that we know would be pleasing to others, instead of tip-toeing the line of trust that we have with them.

Show honor in a relationship by listening and being receptive to what other's wishes and feelings are.

Don't do things that you know or that you even think may stand a chance in violating their trust.

Be open, honest, transparent, and honorable.
