What is trust? According to Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary, trust is an assumed reliance or the character, ability, and strength of someone or something. My definition of trust is someone who can do something without being checked up on or being able to depend on someone. The focus of this essay will be trust. I will go in depth on trust at home, school and trust in general. Follow me on this journey as I explain why trust is needed and how it betters your character. Let’s begin…

Trust is needed everywhere you go. In my opinion I think it is most important because home is where the heart is. My heart is my family. At home, you have to have trust. Without trust in your own house, you’re like an outsider in a stranger’s house. I say that because when you’re not trusted in your own house then you’re going to constantly be watched and checked up on. That will make you feel very uncomfortable. Having trust in your home is having trust from your parents. When your parents trust you, it’s one of the best feelings in the world. You have a sense of responsibility and a sense of independence. You don’t have to be watched every time you’re on the computer and you’re not asked what you’re doing when you’re in the bathroom. (Yes I am making this a personal issue). When you have trust in your home, you have trust everywhere you go. You will also be trusted to do things outside of your home like go on retreats and movies with friends. This is why trust is needed at home.♫

Trust is also needed in school. Trust is need with your parents and teachers when it comes to school. Your parents have to trust you everyday as they go out to work and send you to school to behave and do all your work. They don’t have time to be at work worrying about if there is disrupting a class or doing their work. They should be able to go to work and be at ease. It’s hard enough working a job any ways. Your teachers have to trust you too. They have to be able to know that you won’t cheat on a test or that you will do your homework before you get to class and not copy someone else’s work.
