Today I was at work when suddenly, I felt my apron strings be pulled loose and my tool laden apron started to slip off me. A co-worker wanted my attention and for unknown reasons thought this was the way to get it. A customer needed help and this co-worker couldn't be bothered and expected me to help her. I was more than happy to help the customer, which I did to their satisfaction. Later, I was tempted to tell the co-worker to leave my apron strings alone in the future, but the few interactions I've had with this women has lead me to believe it would only make her determined to do it more often.

This incident reminded me of something my husband once said to me, "Never tell anyone what you like or don't like, they'll use it against you." While I have met the few odd folks that can be said of, in general, I feel good about trusting others. I was wondering if you feel like you have someone in your life you trust.

Until this Covid thing got rolling, I'll say I trusted my gardener on a daily basis.
I tripped and fell down outside a couple of times. Mostly shock, didn't break anything.

Ever after that, if we were outside together, we did stuff together just to get me moving,
he was never more than arm's length away from me.
It was most reassuring, not to make me take any more risks with my lousy sense of balance.

I can’t imagine not having people close to me that I trust.

So my answer is definitely ‘yes’.

To trust is a mutual relationship that both parties respect and uphold absolutely.

Pretty much everyone close to me. Maybe not every time, but close to it. Certainly with important matters, yes.

Yes, even if I shouldn't. Basically I trust everyone until they do something to remove the trust - then it is nearly impossible to get it back.

Pretty much my same philosophy exactly.

I find it a much better way to live than not trusting anyone until they earn it.  Life is too short, and getting shorter too fast.
