Two Reasons why we don't trust people. First-we don't know them. Second-we know them
Mantra: Peace, Love and Blessing friends, Happy Tuesday! Trust is the foundation of all human connections, from chance encounters to friendships and intimate relationships.
It governs all the interactions we have with each other. Culture, civilization, and community all depend on such trust.We all have, or have had, people in our lives we think we know. People that we trust, that we put our faith in. People we’ve invested time and emotion into, who make us feel safe and comforted and cared for. These people are our lifelines and connections in a vast world of disinterest.I think when people say they have ‘trust issues’ they’re really speaking less about their trust in other’s and more about the ways in which they have placed their trust in others. When someone close to you manifests into something you never thought possible, it makes you question everyone and everything.
You question the things you once believed with conviction. You question whether trust is really even possible in this life because you’ve proven you can tragically misplace it. We all have those friends or relatives who appear completely predictable. Who we believe can never change, and it is always those people who surprise, and often hurt us the most.
People who show us that human beings are capable of just about anything, whether it be good or bad. As we grow we have to come to terms with the vast complications that life can present us with; the gray areas we once thought were utterly black and white that leak into our connections with others.
When someone has broken your trust, don’t focus on adjusting the measure of how your place your attachments ,necessarily, don’t assume that you now have the secret code to what types of people are just out to hurt you and which aren’t. Let go of the notion that there are perfect people in this world who will never hurt you or disappoint you.
Accept that everything in life is a gamble and that the stakes may be high but the profit might be worth it.Learn who you are, learn what you are capable of, and you’ll find that trusting yourself is far more valuable than placing unwavering trust in someone else.
