The following question was posed during the #AskFarrakhan chat on Twitter. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan (HMLF) responded to the following questions:
Question: When you have lost the trust of someone, how do you earn that trust back? And how long do you think it takes?
HMLF Response: When you’ve changed, and you’ve lost the trust of someone because of something you did, then continue to be the best person that you can be as an example. And over time, the trust will be regained.
How long? It depends on how deep the pain is from that which was done that caused the loss of trust. Sometimes you never get it back; and in that case, you use your error as a guidepost, and go on with your life.
