Trust, is such a huge word.
Everyday we “trust” people, but what are the qualifications?
You know, the nitty gritty details.
The fine print of where we draw a line.
What are the tiny hoops, we make people jump through? The mental and physical of it.
How much, or how little do you need your qualifications met?
I find myself pushing people through never ending hoops, and obstacles because I have trust issues.
I tend to push people away, simply because I “test” them too much. Okay, never ending. I am always “checking”.
Here lately, I’ve written down all the things I require from people. Trust me, the list is an on going affair with terms and conditions, you know the ones too long to read.
So my challenge this week. Cut my list, to the most vital and important items. Fingers crossed for only having a page left!
Seems easy right.
Each day we sit and say, “today I will be completely honest.”
Then, by the first ten minutes we are lying.
We say that person couldn’t handle the truth, or I don’t want to hurt their feelings. Maybe it was the nice thing to do, lie that is.
How many people can say they are totally honest? All the time? No matter the situation?
No one could. I sure can’t.
So my challenge this weeks, is this: To be honest, in difficult situations.
I mean, if your friend asks you to help in their problems, be honest. Don’t just take your side.
If someone asks you a question, be completely honest. No. Matter. What.
My week starts today, because weekends are the hardest.
