Mistrust

Mistrust Defined 1. Lack of trust or confidence arising from suspicion. 2. To regard without trust or confidence.

Hinduism

[1] Mistrust in a well-wisher’s words is the surest way to ruin. Faith is like a fond mother who can never fail to save her trusting son from dangerous situations. There is no doubt about it.  The fool who has no faith in his well-wisher’s words is forsaken by prosperity, happiness and fame. A man who is always suspicious can never gain anything worthwhile. Confidence holds the world and nourishes all. How can a baby thrive if it has no confidence in its mother?
Tripura Rahasya, Ch V, Verse 22-25
[2] If trust should be placed on any one, my dear, it should certainly be placed on those worthy of it, in order that one’s ends may be served. He who is bent on the highest good should never trust an incompetent person. Otherwise, he comes to grief, like a fish attracted by the tempting bait at the end of a fishing line. Therefore, faith can only be put in the worthy and not in the unworthy.
Tripura Rahasya, Ch V, Verse 33-35
