When it comes right down to it, trust (after a certain age) is problematical even in the best of times. One might say this is more true than ever in today’s world, perhaps. But then again maybe the truth of it is that many of us have more things influencing us (trending and never-ending streams of information) than previously encountered.
We’re more aware of not only the opinions and actions of people in our immediate vicinity but also of those further away. Terabytes of digital information influence and affect us, (much as a virus where trending information has become a contagion mindset) hence greater trust issues emerge. Who can we believe? Who can we count on? Who can we TRUST?
For as long as … well … the forever we know of (past history) and believe to be true (of course this seems to change daily also) there have been tragedies, successes, sorrowful experiences and happy ones, wars, famine, rich, poor, good leaders, bad leaders and indifferent ones (depending on your viewpoint, of course).
So, the heart of the matter is this … who can you trust? Begin by trusting in yourself. Be true to you! Be honest within your heart. Care about what and who you care about.
Next, from a viewpoint of perspective based on conscientious consideration (not one solely based on your emotions of the moment) see others as equals not as potential enemies, but rather people with a different way than yours who perhaps might be potential friends.
And then keep moving forward in a more nuanced consistent manner, as if you’re ‘per chance‘ dancing your way through life. Focus less on ‘concerning maybes‘ in tomorrow’s unknown. See not responsibilities as everyday burdens casting heavy laden pieces of inescapable reality your way (which often lead to more missteps within the flow of forward momentum), but rather view your concerns and responsibilities as potentials to be overcome and resolved.
Become a ‘Momentum Poet’ trusting in yourself to carry you forward. Progress cannot then so easily be halted. Truly. The creative/imaginative power inside your heart and soul will incessantly resist negative tides, overcoming, moving beyond a myriad of unanticipated obstacles.
Never doubt your individual power and ability to overcome and move onward. It’s always there, just waiting for you to activate. Know that your uniquely poetic movements in life are both singular and multitudinous in purpose, stronger than you can imagine, blending as needs be with others. And even as you strengthen your belief in self, know you are never alone. Never.

then love me far beyond,
all of this and more is
Life’s universal song.” ~Plh

Thank you for being you, thank you for stopping by, hang in there, keep loving and moving forward.
I wish you well,
