This is a quick one for you all today speaking about Trust.
Now we all know how it goes “Don’t trust anyone” “Don’t trust words trust Actions” You cannot trust anyone these days, fake has become the new real” “Don’t trust them as far as you can throw them”….The list is endless with all these quotes! And there is some truth to them!
I have recently learnt this the hard way! I used to always believe in “trusting someone until they give you a reason not too”. EPIC fail on my part, I open to people, I allow people into my life and my heart and very soon realise that I should never have done so! Secrets are hard to keep for the majority of people so telling your secrets to the wrong person turns them quickly into public knowledge.
Trust isn’t only with secrets, you can trust that someone will have your back in a situation or trust that someone won’t hurt you. There will be so many different people in your life that you have to have some different level of trust! For example: you trust the bank clerk isn’t stealing your money, you trust your children to behave in your absence, you trust your partner is where they say they are and is only with you, you trust your friends will be there when you need them, you trust your debit card will work when you put it in the machine (and secretly pray as you put your pin in)…. the list is endless as are the levels and the people whom you need to but the most important out of them all is YOU.
Trusting that YOU are making the right choices for you and that you can trust yourself enough to believe in what you are doing. If you have any doubt or you are questioning a choice you make you are not trusting yourself and that could be for a very good reason. If a partner cheats on you it is more than likely you can no longer trust them it works the same for you! Making a bad decision and not trusting your own judgement can lead to a life of doubt, second guessing and regrets.
I am learning to trust myself and it is hard. I have let myself down so many times and made poor choices. Promised myself I would change and gone back to my bad ways again. If I do this to myself constantly how can I trust someone else with me, my body, my heart?
If you doubt it, question it, or your instinct tells you something else TRUST that. Trust yourself because ultimately you know what is best for you.
I know this because I recently suffered from something I call “Lava Batty” which most people call Diarrhea. I needed to Fart and I thought, risky business, really…should I? It will be fine, it doesn’t “feel” like that I think, it “might” be different this time, its “been” a while, this has so I should be “ok”…all these doubts went through my mind and I didn’t trust myself, I went with it…and well…..
You can’t trust A Fart.
