Trust is illustrated in the dictionary as a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone; however, trust is not that straightforward to interpret. Trust goes into a deeper meaning as we experience life and grow. Trust is believing in someone with your heart, knowing that they will treasure and adore it inside them. Trust is not doubt.
