1 Pain changes people, it makes them trust less, overthink more, and shut people out.

It’s an unfortunate truth, but true nonetheless.

2 A single lie discovered is enough to create doubt in every truth expressed.

Isn’t it crazy how just one lie can completely change all of the truths you’ve heard?

3 Breaking someone’s trust is like crumpling up a perfect piece of paper. You can smooth it over but it’s never going to be the same again.

This is just one of the unfortunate truths; if you lie to someone, you’ve messed something up that can never really, truly be repaired.

4 Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair.

Undoubtedly one of the BEST trust quotes you will ever read; why? Because it’s so undeniably true! Trust truly is a flaky thing that can be broken instantly, but it can’t be repaired as quickly as it is broken.

5 If you want to be trusted, be honest.

That’s so true! You can’t expect to be trusted by anyone if you’re never being honest about anything, right? So the next time you’re wondering why someone doesn’t trust you… Ask yourself, have you been completely honest with them and deserving of their trust?

6 Stop asking me to trust you while I’m still coughing up water from the last time you let me drown.

A very powerful, emotional, and deep quote that really hits the heart.

So, so true- relationships require communication, respect, AND trust in order to work.

That’s right! Only trust someone who can do these things, it will be the benefit for you in the long run.

9 When you start to wonder whether you can trust someone or not, that is when you already know you don’t.

Always remember this, because you should NEVER have to question your trust for someone.

10 I respect people that tell me the truth. No matter how hard it is.

Truth is always better than a lie, that’s for sure.


11 Forgiving them isn’t the hard part. It’s trusting them again.

Yes, especially because trust is such a hard thing to gain back after you’ve lost it.

12 Don’t trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar.

The worst part about this quote is it’s TRUE! Not everything looks the way it really is, just like sugar and salt- wow.

13 Trusting you is my decision. Proving me right is your choice.

Because people will either work to build on trust and be honest, or break it- it is NOT under your control!

14 My love is unconditional. My trust and my respect are not.

You can still love someone without trusting and respecting them.

15 Relationships are about trust. If you have to play detective, then it’s time to move on.

Yes, if you don’t trust your partner and feel the need to snoop on them, then there’s a huge problem at hand.

16 If the words don’t add up, it’s usually because the truth wasn’t included in the equation.

A little bit of math for ya, but you have to admit that it’s undeniably true.

17 Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to.

Love is SUCH a crazy thing, isn’t it? And if you don’t trust someone not to break your heart, how can you fall in love with them? Yes, things happen, but trust this person before you take the plunge into love.

18 The worst thing about being lied to is knowing you weren’t worth the truth.

That’s definitely true- like, why weren’t you good enough to know the absolute truth? What hurts more, the actual lie or knowing you didn’t mean enough to get the truth? That hurts deep!

19 When you have a good heart: you help too much, you trust too much, you give too much, you love too much, and it always seems you hurt the most.

Isn’t that the sad truth? Good hearts always seemed to be stomped on.

It really hurts when someone says one thing, but does the other, and you find out they are nothing but a big liar!


21 Trust is like an eraser, it gets smaller and smaller after every mistake.

I love this analogy! Gives a great visual about trust, and I think we can ALL agree with this.

22 Tell a lie once and all your truths become questionable.

Hmm, so true. One little lie can screw up all the ‘truths’ you told, because maybe those were lies that went unnoticed.

23 I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people- even when you think you know them well- are ultimately unknowable.

Everyone is capable of ANYONE!

24 Trust the vibes you get. Energy doesn’t lie.

If something FEELS a certain way, it probably IS that way!

Yes! Completely agree with this quote, and I think you will too.

Obviously they don’t consider you a priority if they’re doing something like this.

27 When you fully trust someone without any doubt, you finally get one of two results: a person for life or a lesson for life.

It’s true, because they’ll either be trustworthy until the end of time, or show you that they should’ve never been trusted in the first place..

28 I hate being lied straight to my face when I know every bit of the truth.

Isn’t this the worst? You know they’re lying, but they still try telling you a lie right to your face; just awful.

Because everyone has a certain pattern that they follow, and that’s just the truth.


31 There are two reasons why we don’t trust people. First- we don’t know them. Second- we know them.

Yup, because we can’t trust people we do not know, but then again, if we know someone is a notorious liar, we can’t trust them either. Wow!

32 Don’t be sorry, I trusted you. My mistake, not yours.

Sometimes we make a mistake when we decide to trust someone. It hurts, but sometimes that’s just the way it is.

33 Grab a plate and throw it on the ground. –Okay, done. Did it break? –Yes. Now say sorry to it. –Sorry. Did it go back to the way it was before? –No. Do you understand?

I LOVE this little short story! It shows how fragile the truth is, and a simple sorry won’t fix a big lie that broke the trust in the first place.

A very powerful quote, but a great one nonetheless.

It’s true- we always know the truth deep down inside, and we should act on that feeling.

37 It takes a lot of courage and trust to look past what you’ve been through, and trust someone new not to put you through it again.

It is an incredibly hard thing to do, but we can’t give up- there’s someone out there who won’t let us down and break our trust, we just have to find them, even though the journey may be hard.

38 Be a woman other women can trust. Have the courage to tell another woman direct when she has offended, hurt or disappointed you. Successful women have a loyal tribe of loyal and honest women behind them. Not haters. Not backstabbers or women who whisper behind their back. Be a woman who lifts other women. –Sophia A. Nelson

There definitely needs to be more women like this- be one of them.

39 Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned.

Perfectly said!

A great quote for my religious readers out there- God will always lead you to those who should really be there.


41 Love many, trust few. Always paddle your own canoe.

This is kind of a silly quote, and it rhymes! But it’s also very true. You should love a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean you have to trust them. And never rely on anyone else- ‘always paddle your own canoe’ basically means look after yourself and don’t rely on others.

42 I don’t trust easily. So when I tell you that ‘I trust you’, please don’t make me regret it.

So true! I think most of us don’t trust very easily, so if we trust someone, we really don’t want them to screw it up.

43 ‘Sorry’ works when a mistake is made, but not when trust is broke. So in life, make mistakes but never break trust. Because forgiving is easy, but forgetting and trusting again is sometimes impossible.

This is such a beautiful trust quote, because we should never ever give up on love no matter how many times it has hurt us. We should always try and find it, because we NEED it!

47 Sometimes, the only one you can trust is yourself.

ABSOLUTELY! Could not agree more with this quote.

48 A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself.

This is so beautiful, and I could not agree any more- always believe and trust in yourself, always!

49 Trust doesn’t come with a refill. Once it’s gone, you probably won’t get it back, and if you do, it will never be the same. And that’s a fact.

Yes, this IS absolutely a fact. You can’t ever get trust back again once it’s lost, and if on the off chance you DO get it back, it simply won’t be the same; that’s just the way it is.

50 I’m a good enough person to forgive you, but not stupid enough to trust you again.

Because it’s easy to forgive someone, but you would be a fool to trust them again right off the bat. Be smart, ladies!
