On maintaining trust 保持信任


Trust is a typical topic that every one of us is quite familiar with. However it has been giving much more emphasis nowadays because it is really in a critical time for us to appeal for maintaining trust between people.

As a side-effect of the prosperity of the market economy, the absence of trust is partly contributes to the dishonesty of some businessmen and manufacturers who make or sale shoddy and unqualified products to pursuit a bigger profit. It resulted in the untrusting between people. While the untrusting, in return, make it more difficult to pursuit a bigger profit for it takes more time and energy to convince people into buying their commodities. What’s worse, it may lose the potential customers and result in its collapse. It goes for the interpersonal relationship. Can we imagine what it would look like if we live in a world without trust? It must be cold and misery.

Therefore, it is high time for us to strengthen the importance of maintaining trust to create a better life.


As the contemporary society develops dramatically, a worrying problem has sprung up that the degree of trust among individuals has decreased. For example, when we meet a man begging for money due to his handicapped leg in the street, we are considering whether he is cheating us. Plus, in the business circle, we consumers couldn’t easily believe what the merchant has guaranteed.

All these problems mentioned above are reduced to adverse consequences. Especially, in the corporate world exists the prevalence of dishonesty. Influenced by these phenomena, we, invariably, become increasing cautious about other’s guarantee, even a piece of word. Thus, this trend does much harm to the commodity economy.

The underlying reason for these phenomena is that current people fail to trust each other, so keeping trust counts most, because the foundation of any relationship, whether it be with a business associate, spouse, parent, client or, friend, is trust. Trust is not something that can be built with quick fix techniques. Rather, it is something that is cultivated through consistent habits in personal interactions.


Trust is crucial and indispensable in maintaining a relationship. Without trust, we cannot get along well with other people, let alone cooperate with them or get help from them. People are social animals. Without interacting with other people, life would be dull and meaningless.

Nowadays, the whole society is faced with “credit crisis”. We become unwillingly to believe the governments, friends, colleagues and strangers. This poses a great threat to the building of a harmonious society. And sometimes, we even believed that we might be deceived if we trust too much. But in our everyday life, if we don’t trust other people, we could live in torment. Since trust is of great significance, what should we do to improve our sense of trust? First of all, we cannot lie to those who trust us. Secondly, it’s never too late to apologize to others for our mistakes. What’s more, we should strike a trust balance between ourselves and others. “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” should be our ultimate goal.

The perfect way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him, and to let him know that you trust him.

Into the Unknown
The world has never seen population ageing before. Can it cope?
Until the early 1990s nobody much thought about whole populations getting older. The UN had the foresight to convene a “world assembly on ageing” back in 1982, but that came and went. By 1994 the World Bank had noticed that something big was happening. In a report entitled “Averting the Old Age Crisis”, it argued that pension arrangements in most countries were unsustainable.

As is described in the picture, a father asks her daughter how her school today goes on. Instead of answering directly, the daughter tells her father to read her blog. It is common that youngsters nowadays incline to communicate with others on internet increasingly, and lack communication with people around them. With the development of Internet, it has influenced our society to a large extent, especially interpersonal communication.

To begin with, we can communicate with others anytime via internet. Otherwise, we would have to arrange our schedules strictly in advance. Also, interpersonal communication through the internet is not restricted by space. For example, in most multinational corporations, instant messages and video conferences help colleagues solve problems timely and efficiently. Last but not least, the internet can greatly speed up our interpersonal communication. Whereas, there are also disadvantages that the internet brings to us. More and more people complained that they have lost face-to-face communicating skills. As a result, people become more and more indifferent to each other in real life. Some netizens who are immersed in virtual world even have difficulty in making friends in reality.

In conclusion, communication through the internet could bring us both convenience and inconvenience. We should strike a balance between them and make the best of the internet.

Today I saw an interesting cartoon, in which a father asked his daughter about her school performance of the day, and the daughter replied that he could go to her blog to check it. This small cartoon indicates a big change in our life, especially the way people communicate.

Internet enables people to break though the limitations of distance, strengthening social network. Unlike post offices, Internet service with its convenience helps people engage and converse real time with their parents, soul mates, friends though emails, IRC, micro blog anytime, anywhere with a network terminal, without suffering the long and painful wait for a reply.

Besides, such online communities as Twitter, Facebook are well under way and becoming the most dominating platforms for on-line social activities. These communities offer great opportunities for us to follow and interact with those we like and even those celebrities.

Internet today and tomorrow is a virtual space where we live, where we learn, where we speak, and where we communicate.
