Trust is a verb

Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone.  Trust is earned. It's built over time. Trust is a choice - a verb - something one DOES. 

Loosing trust to betrayal & deceit is a heartbreaking difficult loss. And when trust is violated and lost, respect or lack thereof follows. Restoring trust again and earning trust again requires evidence. Evidence defined by our character and competencies. Who we are. What we say. What we choose. What we DO. They're all one in the same.
