Generally on this blog we talk about specific security tools and concepts that are out on the market. But, in reality, our security is found more in who and what we trust. That’s why we wanted to delve into understanding how your security is based on trust. As much as those mechanical security systems we suggest are valuable, if you don’t trust them to do their jobs, then you still won’t feel secure.
Defining Security and Trust
A good dictionary definition of the word, security, reveals that is “the state of being free from threat or danger.” But, another source utilizes safety as an interchangeable word. So, when do people feel safe? Logically we feel safe when we trust our situations, circumstances, and those in them, to maintain our freedom from harm. It’s a “firm belief in the strength of something or someone.” Essentially, we feel secure and safe when we trust that our well-being is guarded from harm.
Delivering Tangible Security
Before we move into the deeper elements of this issue, we need to know that trust is important in all aspects of life, including business. So, when we choose to distribute our products, we need a delivery service that will secure those goods and get them where they are supposed to go. LTS Distribution is a reliable and professional mode of delivery that we can trust. Honesty and integrity are necessary for trust in all realms, whether professional or emotional, and they can provide both of those. LTS Distribution is great for tangible deliveries, but learning how to seek out good emotional delivery personnel is another element all together.
Delivering Emotional Security
Tangible security might actually be the easiest to acquire. Finding a good company, a good security system, a good car, etc, is less challenging than determining which people in your life are capable of delivering emotional security. Therefore, we want you to contemplate these things as you seek out secure and trustworthy relationships:
- Think about it– If you want to be physically secure, you employ systems and safeguards to protect you and your belongings. The same should be true about emotions. Be thoughtful about who you put your trust in and how much of that trust you give them. Listen to intuition and pay attention to actions. Read this.
- Know the difference– Just because someone is nice, that may not translate to anything else. Not all nice people are trustworthy. They might just be good for fun times, not emotional security.
- Define trust- Yes, we offered our definition, but you need to carefully consider what trust means to you. What are the parameters? You might what to write it down.
- Perfection and humanity aren’t equal– You will never find a perfect someone. However, you can seek out those who are honest and have some devotion to integrity. Besides, some people are trustworthy in different areas. That big bouncer guy you know might be trustworthy to walk you to the car but not so much with your most intimate thoughts.

- Patterns reveal– We are all creatures of habit. Keep an eye out for patterns that can reveal a lot about a person. Be particularly mindful during stressful times.

Trust yourself to know who is and who isn’t good for you. Seek out tangible and emotional security, not just when at home but throughout your day. Trust and security go hand in hand. Learn more.
