Chapter 2: The importance of Trust…
The same thing happens when miseries exists and you don’t know what to do… At some point in our lives, we want to change ourselves, but a part of us tells us different. That part of us fears that if we change, we might not end up where we wanted to. Everything is the same: “A voice inside us that kept on saying ‘Don’t take chances’, or ‘You cannot do it’… And if that is the case, I can say that we really are the culprit of our own miseries.
Haven’t heard of Trust issues? Well, who doesn’t, right? At some point in our lives or maybe for some, we feared the word. Trust is a BIG word, and doing it is even BIGGER. I know for a fact that all of us experienced having a hard time opening up to a stranger or a colleague which has really nothing to do with your personal life. We all had trouble telling our friends and classmates that we hated one of them because of the fear that it might be misunderstood and worsen things.
Have you thought about trying to open up with someone? It might easy for some to talk, but, when you say trust, it is far way different. Well, talking is one thing, but trusting is another. But we have to learn that life is also about trusting. Trust comes in different ways and all are equally important. How can you be a team if you don’t trust your colleagues? How will you learn if you do not trust your teachers and mentors? How can you love if you don’t trust your friends, family, parents and partner? And most importantly, how can you be happy if you do not trust yourself?
Those questions define who we are and what we need to do. Always know that YOUR life is not all about YOU. Life was not created to be lived by one single person. It is definitely not a one-man show because life is how you make the most out of what you have through others. You learn with them, grow with them and love with them and vice-versa. That is how important trust is and the first step in having the courage to trust others is to trust yourself first that you can do it! Because you really CAN!
Trusting is not eating your pride or even telling others that you cannot do it alone. To trust is to tell others that you are brave enough to let these wonderful people walk into your life and help you make everything colorful and meaningful. It means that you are strong enough to make them touch your life and make you a part of theirs too. But always know that trusting is as important as keeping the trust. That is why show the people how you love them not just by being worthy of their trust but also being able to keep the trust. Building a trust may take a long time, but ruining it can take only seconds.
Whatever you do, always put your trust to God. Because He knows what He is doing and everything in life will always be brighter when you let go of the doubt.
Trust life as it has trusted you to be worthy of living a good one.
Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. – Golda Meir
