Willing to Trust

Trust can be elusive. Many of us have had our trust and faith broken by life and those in it. The result is the inability to be open to trusting that others have more than their own self-interests in mind. 

We also carry distrust for ourselves. We become unwilling to have faith in what our guts tell us. This lack of trust leads us to disconnect or not connect fully with ourselves and others. While we may interact and be involved, we hold back. We isolate parts of ourselves. Aspects of ourselves are held hostage in fear of being seen and appreciated. We suffer. Our relationships suffer, because we are not fully living; we are holding back. 

Today, how can you be willing to trust yourself a little bit more? For when you can trust you, you will find that you can more easily trust others. What are you afraid of? 

“I am in the process of trusting myself.” It all begins within. 

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them. ~ Ernest Hemingway

  1. From my experience and learning about myself, in recovery from addiction, is that I aspire to be uninhibited and generous with who I truly am. To fully understand that everyone merely acts in their own self-interest. When I do for others I am being selfish, a more refined type, but I get something out of it. It is, of course, a difficult endeavor, to fully trust myself. As for expecting others to act in kind is an expectation I can let go of easily. They’re human after all.
