May 16th - Trust...
Do we ever really know if we can trust someone? How?
Thus, I reason, we create a state of mind around trust. To do so, I put faith in God, spirit, higher power, universe… I let go and surrender to believing everything is working out, love will win over evil, goodness is present, take people at their word…
Should I not choose trusting, would mean doubt, perhaps paranoia. Living a life questioning from a place other than curiosity, might be filled with insecurities and a need to control. Not to mention, despite our best efforts, individually we can only do so much to contribute to a trusting relationship. Just because we give trust does not mean we will receive trust.
This I would know firsthand. Never doing anything deliberately or knowingly – I was both shocked and educated when the completely objective party said out loud to me, “it sounds like your sister doesn’t trust you”. What a blow for someone who considered themselves highly trustworthy. But quite telling, how can one trust another when they live from an untrusting, state of mind.
Hmmm, without doubt…day 286!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
