The Power of Reputation and Trust

trust

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently I had things stolen from me by an individual whom I thought had enough respect for me and our relationship to not do something like that. However, I was proven wrong.

It has been a while since I have felt close to the amount of rage I had as a youth, but as I cooled down I had realized that things I had read about reputation and trust were so true. There are few things more important than the integrity of one’s own reputation.

With reputation comes trust. A trust that takes years to build up, but seconds to ruin. And sadly now my image of that person is a cheating liar who cannot be trusted.

So before you act upon a thought ask yourself this, “Am I tarnishing my reputation by taking this course of action?”. And if you can answer yes to this question, then don’t do it, because even if you mend the broken bonds things will never quite be the same between you and those who’ve been hurt by your actions.
