All strong relationships are founded on mutual trust.
Whether it’s with your friends, your partner, or even your pet, knowing that they trust you with their life is one of the best feelings there is.
On the other hand, if they don’t trust you, it feels really bad, doesn’t it?
And if you’re on this page, chances are you’re wondering if someone in your life trusts you completely—or you might be worried that someone in your life doesn’t trust you.
But don’t fret, because you’ve come to the right place!
Below, we’ll be discussing the 9 behaviors that show that someone trusts you completely.
Without further ado, let’s jump right in!
1) They make time for you
When someone truly trusts you, they won’t treat you like an afterthought.
They trust that you won’t waste their time, so they carve out time from their busy schedule because they genuinely want to be with you.
Whether it’s a coffee catch-up, a late-night chat, or simply spending time in each other’s company, they prioritize spending you.
And when you know someone treats your company as the highlight of their day, it’s a surefire sign they trust you wholeheartedly.
2) They count on you
Trust means relying on each other, and when you’ve got someone’s trust, they know you’ve got their back.
They see you as their go-to, the person they lean on when things get rough.
Because whether they need a shoulder to cry on or a problem to solve, they will always look to you for your judgment and seek your support.
So when you notice that someone relies on you every time they’re struggling, take that as a compliment—it means they trust you enough to count on you.
3) They don’t start every sentence with a disclaimer
When we’re around people that we’re not comfortable around, we tend to make disclaimers every time we’re trying to say something.
It goes like this:
“I might be wrong, but…”
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but…”
Well, when someone trusts you, they speak their mind sans disclaimers.
Because they know you won’t judge them or criticize them harshly—they trust that you’ll simply listen and understand, which is also a sign that they’re not afraid to open up to you.
4) They’re not afraid of opening up to you
Vulnerability is scary, for sure.
That’s why a lot of people choose to hide, or to be on their own even when they’re lonely, because that’s better than the possibility of getting hurt.
Which is why it’s so rare to find someone to trust, and even more rare to find someone who trusts you.
Because when someone trusts you, they don’t build walls between you two; they let them down.
They’re not scared to share their feelings, dreams, and fears with you, which means you should consider yourself lucky.
It means they trust you enough to know that you won’t use their vulnerabilities—or secrets—against them.
5) They tell you their secrets
A secret is a secret for a reason.
It can be embarrassing, horrifying, or even disgusting—so when someone tells you their secrets, that means they trust you completely.
They’re basically showing you that they trust you enough to keep their secrets safe.
It’s a sign that they know you won’t betray their confidence, and that kind of trust is truly golden.
6) They’re comfortable being themself around you
When you’ve got someone’s trust, they feel safe being themself around you.
They don’t have to hide who they are to be accepted, which means that when they’re with you, they don’t need to put on a show.
They trust that with you, they can be who they are, show their true colors, and you’ll look at them with no judgment—only admiration.
7) They listen to you
When someone trusts you completely, they listen to you.
When they need advice, they will seek yours, and you will see them actually following what you said.
That’s a telltale sign that someone trusts you completely, because why would they ever follow what you say if they’re worried you don’t care enough about them to give good advice?
8) They value your opinion
As we already know, when someone trusts you, they take your advice and opinions seriously.
They always want to know what you think, whether it’s something as big as a major life decision or as simple as choosing what to watch on movie night.
That’s because they hold your opinion in high regard and they genuinely value your perspective.
It’s a sign that they trust your judgment, and that’s a pretty precious thing, isn’t it?
9) They have faith in you
Trusting someone means believing in them, even when you stumble upon a bump on the road.
And when someone has faith in you, they believe you’ll come through when it matters most.
It’s like they’re saying: I trust you to handle whatever life throws our way.
It’s a powerful bond, and in my opinion, only the really good ones are chosen to have someone who believes in them that much.
When a person trusts you completely, it’s both an honor and a responsibility.
An honor, because out of the many people in their life, they choose to trust you.
And a responsibility, because trust is a heavy thing to bear—you have to make sure it doesn’t get broken because it won’t ever get back to the way it was before.
So if you’ve got someone in your life displaying these 9 behaviors, you can rest easy knowing that you have the honor of being trusted, but not too easy that you forget that it’s also a responsibility.
But don’t worry about it too much, because in the end, no matter how big the responsibility may be, it will always be a beautiful thing to know that someone believes in you, leans on you, and opens up to you without hesitation.
Remember, trust isn’t just about others trusting you; it’s also about trusting yourself.
Trust your instincts, your ability to be there for those you care about, and your capacity to build strong connections, and you won’t only live a meaningful life—you will be unbreakable, too.
