Whatever You Do, Trust Anyway
Trust is a very broad concept. It has a lot of very different and very diverse definitions in this world. According to Merriam-Webster, it is an “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something”. In the Oxford Dictionaries it is defined as the “Firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something”. Those were just the dictionary and encyclopedic meanings.
If you ask around, maybe to your family or your friends, to your best friend or to a stranger, their definitions of trust will have varying degrees of opinionated and calculated descriptions based from their own experiences and the environment that they grew up to. It is a very general and broad topic. However, one thing is for sure. Trust might be “easily” explained, but it is something hard to give to others. Yes. Even for people who say that they trust “easily”.
You have got to admit. Trusting someone is never easy. Giving up and lowering your guard and emotional barrier to trust and let somebody in your life is such an overwhelming and sometimes overpowering feeling. Putting your trust to somebody else so that they can help you with your problems is a lot and can be a lot of stress to a person. You are both surrendering yourself and telling yourself to have confidence on others to help with your life. This is something the Universe will provide. Yes, the Universe. Fate. Destiny.
What do you do now so you can trust more freely? Take small steps. Do this every day of your life. Show the Universe that you are open to its help. How? Ask the Universe to help you. You can also ask other people to help with your problems. Always be open to opportunities and options that come into your life. You should not have the attitude that you can always do things yourself. There are times that you really do need the help of others. We can always use help whenever possible, even at times that we do not want it. If you are willing to help others in need of your help and if you are willing of others helping you, the probability of you having everything that you ever wanted in your life will multiply exponentially.
You should not stop yourself on your own track. Embrace the Universe. Trust it. Trust it unconditionally. Unbiased. Unappalled. There will be a lot and I mean a lot of times that the Universe will give you reason to not trust. Just trust the Universe. No questions asked.
