Journaling Prompts

Trusting: Whom do you trust most and why? Is the person or people you trust from the distant past – longtime friends or family, or people who are new to your life? What kind of information do you want or need from those you trust – unconditional support and listening, or honest feedback when you need it but may not WANT it?

Faith: What is the meaning of faith in your life? Were you taught to trust in a higher power? Do you still believe in the faith of your family of origin, or have you pursued a different path? What parts of your childhood faith still resonate with you, or bring you comfort? Which parts no longer serve you?

Broken trust: Has someone ever taken advantage of your trusting nature? How did you recover from that experience, if you feel you have recovered? How and in what situations has your ability to trust been damaged? Is the lesson learned from that betrayal in any way worth the suffering it caused?

Reliance: What qualities do you possess that you rely on most in your everyday life? Do other people trust you with their secrets, their plans and their dreams? Do you trust yourself to make good decisions for the short and long term? How responsible are you?

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

William Shakespeare

For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth.

Bo Bennett

To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.

George MacDonald

All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Learning to trust is one of life's most difficult tasks.

Isaac Watts

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.

Golda Meir

Someone who thinks the world is always cheating him is right. He is missing that wonderful feeling of trust in someone or something.

Eric Hoffer

Never trust anyone who wants what you've got. Friend or no, envy is an overwhelming emotion.

Eubie Blake

Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.

Barbara Smith

Trust your hunches. They're usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.

Joyce Brothers

Trust yourself, then you will know how to live.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A man who trusts nobody is apt to be the kind of man nobody trusts.

Harold MacMillan

Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly.

George MacDonald

Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else's.

Billy Wilder

When I get logical, and I don't trust my instincts - that's when I get in trouble.

Angelina Jolie

Depend upon yourself. Make your judgement trustworthy by trusting it. You can develop good judgement as you do the muscles of your body - by judicious, daily exercise. To be known as a man of sound judgement will be much in your favor.

Grantland Rice

Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.

Natalie Goldberg

Trust in yourself. Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.

Claudia Black

How can people trust the harvest, unless they see it sown?

Mary Renault

Trust not too much to appearances.


If we really want to be full and generous in spirit, we have no choice but to trust at some level.

Rita Dove

Men trust their ears less than their eyes.


Do not trust your memory; it is a net full of holes; the most beautiful prizes slip through it.

Georges Duhamel

Trusting your individual uniqueness challenges you to lay yourself open.

James Broughton

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Steve Jobs

The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.

Ulysses S. Grant

Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

Khalil Gibran

He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.

B. C. Forbes

Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.

D. Elton Trueblood

Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love - and to put its trust in life.

Joseph Conrad
