Today I want to share with you what I read about Trust in a new blog I'm following now.
You can check it all on the link: misswhoo.com
"Choose to trust.
This is a new one for me. I always thought that the second you came to terms with the fact that 'you cannot trust ANYBODY but YOURSELF' in life, you were stronger for that. Now I can honestly say I am going to have to disagree with myself on that one unfortunately. Although that's what society teaches us, 'fool me once shame on you- fool me twice, shame on me', if we are trying to maintain a relationship, how do we plan on doing that without giving someone the benefit of the doubt? Those who choose to trust, earn trust. If you choose to believe in someone, you are giving him or her a reason to keep trying, to feel loved, to feel valued, and to trust in YOU. The alternative is choosing to always 'protect' yourself by being so skeptical and distrustful, that you never fully allow someone to feel secure, but rather, wrongfully open up a door that says 'this relationship may fail'. It won't fail if both parties choose to not let it fail. If its complicated with the other person, you should be the one to start. Chances are the other person thinks its complicated with YOU.
Notice how there is a CHOICE to be made in every point. Ultimately, it all starts with YOU. We cannot expect and demand changes in a person, but we can all control how we treat our relationships, and that is something worth doing. I humbly believe that if there is ONE thing worth fighting for – it's people."
Hope you enjoy it and be blessed!
Have a wonderful weekend!
