Trust

Trust that the future can still be beautiful even if it looks different than what you were expecting. Trust that even here, more is unfolding beyond what you have been able to see. Even when things have changed.

You may not be able to be everything to everyone, but you can still be everything you were meant to be by choosing to be present and ready to grow at every place on the journey. You do not miss out on what is meant for you when someone says “no” to you. You have not missed out on being able to know Love and Peace just because all that fell apart this year. You are still here, and this matters more than you know. You are going to have more opportunities to live, to learn, to grow.

Years from now, you won’t remember every conversation, every though or everything you accomplished, but I hope you remember the time you bravely chose to love. I hope you remember that when times were hard, you found courage to not give up. I hope you don’t just remember the people who left, but the ones who stuck around. I hope you remember that even after the longest nights, morning Light found you, somehow. I hope you always remember that all along, through everything that was changing, you were changing too.

So if you have to say goodbye to something or someone, I hope you can trust that in time, you will be fine. Not perfect, but fine, and years down the line, life will be different, but still beautiful. You will still be whole. Even if you’re living somewhere different. Working something different. In a community or in a relationship you never could have even imagined could be possible.

      Its presence cements relationships by allowing people to live and work together, feel safe and belong to a group. Trust in a leader allows organizations and communities to flourish, while the absence of trust can cause fragmentation, conflict and even war. Trust is hard to define, but we do know when it’s lost.

      Keep and follow through on commitments you make. Be consistent. Listen empathetically, be present with your partner, and ask questions to better understand them and your relationship with them. Continually deepen your own self-awareness so that you can share your most honest thoughts, emotions, needs, and requests.

      Most welcome. While ideally a relationship will have both love and trust, ultimately trust has the slight edge in terms of importance. While the experts agree that trust may be more β€œimportant” than love, the reality is you don’t want to be in relationship where you have one but not the other.
