How many times have you heard that said to you? I don’t think I could count how many.
When people, mostly men, would ask me if I trusted them, I would always have the same response, “I trust you till you give me a reason not to, but if you do, you’ll probably never get that trust back again!” The second part I blame completely on my Scorpio side, but back in the day that was completely how I felt.
What is trust? Trust is defined as… “a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.” So that means when you trust someone “YOU” have a firm belief that they are going to do or speak the truth.
So, as I said before, my motto was always to trust someone until they gave me a reason not to. Does this mean I trust everything about them? No, I might trust that they will show up for our meeting, but that does not mean I trust them when they say If I give them $1,000, they will turn it into $10,000.
Think back on people that say to you, “You just need to trust me” How does that make you feel? Because it never sat well with me in my past, I was never sure why but it just didn’t usually feel right. When people say to you “You just have to trust me”, it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. It is their way of feeling needed, of feeling a sense of self-worth. If you trust me then I’m important, I have worth.
Trust has nothing to do with anyone else. When you think you are trusting someone else, it’s really about trusting yourself. Trust is about having enough self-worth and self-love to TRUST YOUR HEART CENTER. To TRUST YOUR INTUITION in the decisions you are trying to make for your life. Remember the scenario you read above with the money… It’s not about trusting them, it’s about trusting myself and knowing my self-worth enough to make the best decisions for me.
When we truly believe in ourselves, when we know our worth and come from that place of light and love for all, there is no reason to “trust” anyone but ourselves, our own Heart Center, because ALL of our answers exist within. When we do this, we accept responsibility when someone “lets us down”, we don’t judge them or throw blame their way. When we trust ourselves, it is easier to look for the lesson in it and be grateful for it so we can move on.
Focus on your Heart Center…
Love yourself completely…
Know that you are so worthy….
…..and DON’T Trust Me, Trust YOURSELF!
