Trust in Others
This quote really spoke to me when I came across it. Fundamentally, I
believe want this to be true. However, it also puts a great amount of blind trust into people. For me, I am not one to open up from the get-go, even with age, I still need time to warm up. As I have grown older wiser, I’ve come to accept that I am just that person. It has nothing to do with what the other person/people think of me. It used to be, but that I have grown out of. It’s what I think of myself and how I want to represent myself. Because when I do warm up and open up, I am honest and genuine. I don’t put up a front. I don’t pretend to be someone else. So when you genuinely open yourself up, you expose yourself. You are in a vulnerable position. For me, I just like to make sure I am in a safe place before I put myself in that position. That takes a great deal of trust in others.
