How many people do you trust? Do you see that the concept of trust has many dimensions? At one level is trust that people will not attack or steal from you. Above that is the trust that those you confide in will not violate your confidence in passing sensitive information about you on to others. Still higher is the trust that those you confide in will not reject you for the vulnerability of your confessions. It is possible for someone to be trustworthy at lower levels and fail at this level. If you tell someone your secrets and it changes the basis of your friendship it is not an expression of the highest level of trust. How many people do you trust at this level? How many trust you?
