A very common thing you get to hear these days is “Don’t trust anyone” or “I don’t trust people easily” or “I don’t trust anyone anymore”. Well the problem here is they all take Trust as a binary quantity, 0 or 1, true or false, Trust or Mistrust. Well I trust everyone. For trust is not binary. It has degrees to it.
I may trust you with my pen, I may trust you with the fact that you will convey my message, I may trust you that you will never do what I will ask you to but in fact will do the exact opposite, I may trust you with my belongings and at the highest level I may trust you with my secrets. I will always find a level or a degree of trust befits you.
