    Default trust


    Hi,

    I have been looking for the right verb to use with the noun trust, but I FAILED.

    Can anyone help me?


    Mom fully trusts and supports me. I remember the day I got my driving license, she said: “Take my car and go for a drive.”
    I used this trust and went for a friend’s visit.

    You could say "I took advantage of her trust".

    That sounds nefarious.

    It does a bit, but that's the only answer I could come up with, too, apart from 'respected' and 'appreciated', which don't really work in the sense you're looking for, Eman.J.T.
