Giving your trust to others is a gift according to Susan Mazza.

Giving the Gift of Your Trust

Trust is a precious gift not to be granted lightly.  To give someone the gift of your trust you must be willing to take a stand that they matter enough for you to invest something with them that matters to you.  

It is a way to honor your belief in another and lift them up.  If you want to get in touch with just how honoring this can be, think about a time when someone gave you the gift of their trust.

To maximize the opportunity however, it is critical to be clear about what you are entrusting them with and why it matters to you.  Only then can the gift truly be received based on a mutual commitment.  There is no room for judgement based on expectations. Clear, open, honest and complete communication are prerequisites.

Like any gift, giving someone the gift of your trust is best given with no strings attached and without expectations.  It may be risky, but giving someone the gift of your trust is one of the surest ways to forge a relationship that can be the source of something extraordinary.
