My psychology professor asked this question of "do you trust anyone or when you're in a relationship-do you feel you have to trust the person you're with? & why?". Because of this question I thought about this quote someone once said 'you can only trust yourself,but you have to depend on someone once in your lifetime.' So anybody like to give me their reasoning to this question.

Those closest to me I both trust and depend on. Those not so close, I trust only myself and depend on them only as much as I have to/need to in the circumstance. Interesting question!

I have a small group of people that I trust and would depend on. Everyone outside that group I neither trust or depend on. Even if the people outside of that core group are going to do something to help me I still have backup plans if they don't pull through. When it comes to the people inside my core group we all tend to support each other, so if there is some slack someone is there to pick it up. For me to have any sort of meaningful relationship you need to trust the other person. I definitely feel lucky to have that sort of network.
