It is often said, “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair”.

why we don’t have trust in each other?
1:-Maturity level difference
2:-when your past hurting your present
3:-Unrealistic, unspoken and unclear expectations
When you have a low level of perception for others thinking and disunity of any matter, trust can never be built. Trust usually isn’t something people openly talk about, it’s about automatically feeling of knowing. Our tendency to trust is based on many factors among them being our personality, beliefs, values, culture, norms, self-awareness and self-experiences.
Sue Augustine, author of when your past is hurting your past says“ you may not be able to control what happens to you, but you can control what happens within you”
Having unrealistic, unspoken and unclear expectations are also causing low or broken trust in any relation, great expectations the most likely it is they won’t be met to someone and expect also that they would be love back to you. Clarifying expectations is protective medicine when it comes to trust.
“ It is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest
that holds human associations together“.
~ H.L Menken
