Our thoughts come from our own minds. Our vision happens in our own minds. We don't see with our eyes. Light enters our eyes, but it is our mind that composes the images we "see". The same is true for what we hear, taste, and feel. Our minds assimilate the data input through our sense organs and we develop a story or thought around them. A thought, a story...same thing.
Our emotions and beliefs come from our own mind, not what is happening out there.
If you are very suspicious and distrustful of other people, what does that say about your beliefs, your actions ...your own mind? Are you trustworthy? Do you trust yourself?
It starts and ends with ourselves. We experience reality through our minds. Be trustworthy and you will begin to trust.
