Let's talk about trust. What does it take for someone to earn your trust? What does it take for them to lose it? Recently, I was involved in a group discussion about trust and opening up to people. Sharing, so to speak. You know, you are really putting yourself out there when you tell someone what you consider is a "secret". Maybe it's a girlfriend, or even a co-worker, but whoever it is, you trusted them with a part of you that you may or may not want the world to know.
Sometimes it is hard to know who you can trust. You have people that you know you can trust, and then there are people that unfortunately you aren't so sure about. When you are pouring your heart out and basically wanting encouragement, or validation, or whatever. The last thing you need is to feel betrayed. Hopefully, you have someone that you can trust and tell your problems, or secrets, or whatever to, because we all need to feel a sense of belonging, or maybe better, unconditional acceptance. Unfortunately, in today's world, things aren't perfect. Not even close, that's why it's so important to have trustworthy people in your lives. When you really think about, all we have is each other.
There are people in my life that I love and can't trust. What do you do then? I guess you just keep loving them. There are more people in my life that I can trust. I guess that means there is more good than bad. I like the sound of that! So I guess the moral of the story is "Stay Positive."
If there is a moral. Sharing, is risky, but so is anything that is worth having.
Just something to think about.
