trust

it's so hard to trust.
at one level, our world operates well only when we trust. we need to trust that our money works, people who promise deliveries show up, signatures carry actual weight...
but at the inter-personal level, somehow that breaks down really fast.
we seem almost on the look out for signs of betrayal.
the moment we detect so much as a hint of it, our fright and flight response rears up...
then of course, there are those who seem bent towards paranoia. you may have met them.
so from neighbout to employee to spouse to God, we struggle to trust...
perhaps this is because our hearts are not at rest. we sense that something is amiss and needs to be set right.
what do you think?
