Do not break the trust

Communication is an essential part of every one of us, and I just finished a book about it, wrote by John Maxwell, in this book he points out a lot of different ways to became a good communicator. One of the points that stood out to me was the trust, build it is hard but once you get it, people around you will believe you.

Recently I had a dinner with some friends, and we start sharing different aspects of our lives until it begun to get more personal, to give you a bit of a background, I am the kind of person that almost always start believing the best of people until they break the trust that I have to them. Back into the dinner with my friends, I spoke a bit about my personal life, and then they start pushing it, which is the first red sign, but I did not pay attention to it, and I continued talking. After I spoke, they start giving advice, but I never asked for one. However I let them talk, then I asked them kind of the same question, but they start changing topics. Right there is when the trust that I have with someone breaks, and for me is really hard to give it back (maybe I need to work on that aspect).

My point is that in order to have trust with someone we first need work in not losing it because it not only help us to communicate better but also the relationships that we build are going to be stronger.
