Building A House Of Trust
As the seasons change and we transition from fall to winter; our life experience coincide with nature's transitions. The earth is bound by seasons and as we ourselves feed off the energies of this place we call home. We succumb to its seasons as well.
I am learning to trust in my gut. To know that I know, that even when everything around me does not confirm what I know and believe, I must believe.
Life happens and the experiences we have, take a significant toll on who we are as individuals and our believe systems. We lack the ability to trust our selves and those around us; our first reaction when something goes wrong is to blame someone. We blame ourselves. We blame those around us. The hardest part of it all, is taking responsibility for the things in our life.
Responsibility entails that we trust in our ability to change the things we do not like.
Trust is so strong, it allows you to be dependent, it humbles, it gives hope. Trust will cause you to do unexplainable things, now many of you will think- I can’t trust anyone.
Yes, we all battle with trust and for many it’s a daily battle. Trust always starts with you.
At the same moment you are saying “I can't trust anyone” you are inevitably saying “I can't trust myself”. These are the words you are truly uttering. To trust yourself is to trust that I am making the right decision. I trust myself enough to know I am making the right decision to let this person in.
Trusting your gut.
Nothing is ever black and white; however trust always starts with you. If you find it hard to trust others, you will find it hard to trust yourself and your decision-making.
Trust is not about spilling your guts to a stranger, or having open arms but it is all in the ability to decipher who and what opportunities you trust yourself to be faithful in.
I will never be a trustworthy friend if you never open your self to be trusted, trust has nothing to do with the other parties but starts with you and your ability to give and recieve.
Have you had trust issues? How did you overcome them? and what are you doing to make sure you don't fall in the same spiral?
As always, Peace, love + Great Coffee.
