Trust – belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.
That’s what Merriam tells me about trust. More simply defined than practiced though, right? Here is this huge word that honestly and truly is one of the biggest anchors in a solid relationship. Yet many, many, many of us struggle with trusting another person, myself included.
Now that doesn’t mean that I am a crazy that’s acting a fool and never believing a word someone says or searching high and low to find things that don’t exist. But I can honestly say that at times I have been afraid to trust. Mine mostly reveals itself in a fear of being truly vulnerable in my relationship. Often times I fight against the feelings of expressing myself for fear of being too vulnerable.
