Trust is the greatest principle to forming any type of connection. This is proven in Harry potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K Rowling, where the whole story is centered on a prisoner who no one trusts, so he is locked away in a cell for 12 years. Trust can be hard to obtain, but once acquired, it always leads to great outcomes.
A relationship is more prosperous when it's revolving around trust. A perfect example is in The Prisoner of Azkaban when Harry Potter and Hermione Granger realize the only way to successfully go back in time to change their fate is by working together and holding reliance in each other. Trust can also be within one's self. When he first saw the figure in the woods that saved his life, he was certain it was his father, not him. When Harry travels back in time, he finally realizes he is the only one that can save himself. Even though he kept saying before that he is unfit to perform the spell to affright a dementor, let alone a thousand of them, Harry still trusted in himself and wards off all the dementors by executing the spell.
