    I trust myself. I have no reason not to. I know who I am, where I have been, and where I want to be. In my opinion, trust is a gift. That doesn't mean I give the gift out to every single person without thought. God gave us brains and intuition for a reason, in my opinion.

    It would be stupid of me to make a big sign in the yard, or tell all my neighbors (whether I know them or not) that I trust them implicitly, and leave my doors open or unlocked all the time.

    I trust myself and the people that have earned my trust. Only a Fool trusts blindly. Caveat emptor.....

    Of course most of us trust ourselves.
    As for the neighbors, I think dillo makes a good point. What exactly are we talking about trusting them with?

    My neighbor is an 80-something retired Army pilot who cares for his while, while she struggles with cancer, voted against Obama, brings my trash can back from the street if I'm at work, and plows my driveway while he's doing his own simply because he likes being outside.

    What's not to trust?

    That said.. My trust is earned, and practically nobody has it unconditionally...The people I trust unconditionally can be counted on one hand.

    I don't think that you should trust that he'll be doing this for the next 10 years.
