What are the roots of confidence? The answer is: honesty!
With the strong depreciation of principles and social values, nowadays it’s more difficult to confide in someone. Imagine a society based on trust. How it would be? Surely, it would be a far more honest place where people would live in safety and tranquility.
The root of the plant is essential because, besides giving it posture, it absorbs nutrients from the soil that are needed for survival of the plant. In the same way, trust survives through honesty. A social or personal relationship based on trust is strong, well fed and doubtless. It doesn’t collapse easily.
Trust and honesty are of the utmost importance to all areas of life. For example, trust and honesty are crucial to the survival of the relationship in a marriage. A person who abides by the principles of trust and honesty, can more easily overcome setbacks that arise, and even recognize areas where they can improve as an individual.
