I Do Not Think it Means What You Think it Means.

A donation of time, treasure, talent, or touch is generous.  When given with the intention of benefiting others without first consideration for the impact to oneself it can be inspiring.  However, a donation given with significant strings attached or a recipient unable to receive the gift without altering the intent, invalidates the formula of trust.  A critical component of trust is being able to provide that which is needed and knowing the gift is being put to the best possible use.  When one of the parties needs to assure the other one that they should, trust me the circle is already broken.  Trust me comes through repetitive actions beating towards a consistent heading and over time.  It is not a catch-phrase.  Trust me does not mean what you think it does.
