Today I want to discuss trust. What does trust mean to you? Sure, there is a definition buried somewhere in Webster’s Dictionary, but what does it really mean?
I’ve had “trust" issues my entire life, and I half-way know where they stem from, but in all curiosity I often wonder…what breaks someone’s trust…from everyone? I know that trust is an issue that I’ll battle for the rest of my life. I hope that one day I can fully trust someone. I have a handful of people that I consider my close friends, whom I think I can trust.
What can I do to better myself with my trust issue? Where can I learn to trust in myself and be a more confident woman and mother? Does it come with age or is it something learn to do? At what point can I say I fully trust someone? I hate having these horrible thoughts scramble through my mind, it’s torture. I’ve had a failed marriage, that I often wonder how much I can blame on my lack of trust. It’s ironic, because in the end, I was the one who couldn’t be trusted. This is one “challenge” I’ve set for myself, to become more trusting. It may be easier said than done, but I’m working on it.
