How we trust other person?

image source:

The human mind is oddly magical for me. People can hide what they think and feel in their heads or chests. Even if they try to voice it out. Some parts of the assumption are usually untold. This sometimes makes the other humans feel insecure and slowly distrust other people. So basically, jealousy, hatred, even wars once came from this: an unknown mind from the other person.

This wonder came from two events:

First, someone told me that I have reserves which I believe he’s just joking about.

Secondly, I stumbled upon an internet discussion about a girl installing (an app which I just knew existed): Zenly in her boyfriend’s phone. Then the guy spilled the tea that his girl anxiously monitors wherever he goes and often complained to him when she’s not informed of the location. Crazy? Yeah, but it exists.

Nevertheless, someone told me that it’s easier to not know things. Like: It is what it is. Zero anxiety. Zero break hearts.

Well, some people can do that to the other persons they care about. Like a mom believes her children can be independent even though she worries a lot about how her children live away without them. Or a teacher that believes that their student will reach a certain level of knowledge and skills. Or specifically, most partners believe their partners without hesitation.

Then, this put me into thought, how can people trust other people? How to measure the trust they give? How to feel at ease for not knowing the other’s mind? Or how do they even believe in their prediction that the other person won’t betray them?

What’s your opinion about that? Would you care to discuss that with Genuinely Ask?

You can make a post to answer this, and don’t forget to mention me and Genuinely Ask Publication!
