This quote is simply reflecting the fact that, because trust is a fundamental necessity for human relationships to be successful and operating on the same level, it is also an expectation that one will be trusted by another party, and if they are not it will be a serious disappointment and engender uncertainty about the value and wisdom of the relationship existing itself. It is a basic aspect of human nature, that people who are distrustful of others will themselves be viewed with suspicion because of concern they may be covering up something lacking, or have an ulterior motive to perhaps exploit others, and their lack of trust is because they are after something else to begin with. So the inability to trust is seen as a kind of deficiency in the makeup; it is seen as a corollary with inner strength and with the degree of development of true character, having a requisite stability and wherewithal for people to hold their own and have something to offer, because they are a force to reckon with, or at least likely to be a caring person with values, and someone worthwhile to be involved with in a relationship. If people mistrust others when that is wholly unjustified, it is telegraphing an inner weakness, likely, that the person cannot trust their own discernment or is impaired to some extent, perhaps by having a tough life of disappointments. But few people are looking for the walking wounded to bond with, and devote themselves to a lifelong partnership with such an individual, all other things being equal. So not only will someone who cannot trust end up living in fear of those around them, they will likely be rebuffed by many sensing something is not in place and may well be avoided because of the uncertainty they are projecting to others.
