Believe … Let go … and …Trust!

The Trusting Heart

Now that’s a tough word isn’t it? TRUST!

I know it is.

I think that most of us have had issues with that one, both in the past and present.

Quite a difficult thing to maneuver around. Lack of trust does seem to get in the way of many things.childs trust

It is so extremely hard to trust sometimes, but not trusting can become an anchor that weighs you down.

Have you ever had a child leap off of something towards you and say “Catch me”? You barely have time to acknowledge their request when your arms go out to catch them. They trust you.

They haven’t learned any painful lessons yet that can make it harder to trust so unconditionally.

Brutal lessons in life can take innocent belief away. But for your own health and well being and as difficult Β as it may be – Let go, forgive (as you can and then move on towards the trusting heart!

  2. Forgiveness for me is what has changed my life. I still watch a couple of my siblings who seem trapped in their angry, hurtful world, not enjoying life, not trusting, when sadly the one who hurt them passed so many years ago. Forgiveness and trusting do go hand-in-hand. Great post Penny. πŸ™‚

  4. I just thought that I would let you know that your post about trust inspired me to write an aphorism/contradiction about it. So, thanks for being an inspiration! πŸ˜€

    It is a lovely thing reading your posts actually – it feels good to visit your space.

    • Yes. It is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, still is but I’ve discovered that believing has been healing for me most of all, letting go the feelings of betrayal that are so awful and the hurt that goes along with that. Hard but worth it my friend.

  5. Trust is very hard for me because of past relationships and I don’t think I will ever trust a guy 100% ever again but now I don’t get hung up on it. If a guy betrays me, it’s not the end of the world because I still have me.

    • I think that’s a pretty healthy attitude Sandra. Trust is a very complex situation, bottom line ~ be true to you first! I think you’re spot on my friend and I agree with you! πŸ™‚

  6. Trust?? hmmm haven’t been able to do that much in my life. But it is all good for we move on and eventually some of it returns slowly. thanks for the positiveness of YOU!! Have a very Happy New Year and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for this coming year πŸ™‚

  7. I had a very serious problem with trust. 2012 changed that for me though. Although the niggles will ALWAYS be there in the back of the mind, I have learned to trust again. Losing trust is like the dark side. Once it has bitten you, it will always be a part of your destiny; your path. It is up to you to fight that “dark side” and realise that not everyone is like the people who betrayed that trust. Sorry – rambling.

    Very good post Penny

    • Hi Leslie. It does get that title often does it? And brutal does come to mind for those who have had to endure broken trust. So trust is a tough one but a needed quality for unconditional love. I can’t wait to hear about your flag system! πŸ™‚ xx
