Trust is a Core Key. To build a solid foundation for life in general, meaningful relationships and most of all to enable yourself to be you. Without trusting your own knowledge, values, principles often result in feeling overwhelmed, anxious and questioning yourself all the time. It will keep you from living to your full potential. This level of lack of trust might even lead to depression, or even worse.

We all go through the same emotions

There are moments throughout life you feel misunderstood, unworthy, second guessing yourself constantly. Maybe you wanted to be a soccer player, a ballerina, a pilot, a psychologist. You did your best at school, pleasing your parents in an attempt to be acknowledged for who you are. Overwhelmed at times by the burden of adult problems laid upon your shoulders, being told you have to take responsibility for your family, be loyal and love always seems to be accompanied by conditions.

As soon as you started to create opinions of your own, compose your own principles, fight for the right to express and tried to become who you need to be, family and friends succeeded in convincing you, your new-found paths are the wrong paths to take. They might even have twisted the truth for their own needs.

Love without Trust worthless

Life can be harsh, we can’t always control everything around us. In addition, people you love and trust, claim they love you too, can make you feel confused. Desperate to a point you just want to disappear. Sequentially, you start building walls, distanced yourself from the world you live in and even forgot about your own truth. Is their love trustworthy?

It IS tempting to forever hold a grudge and blame the persons who’ve hurt you, who deprived your innocence physically or mentally. It’s human nature to seek for someone, or something, to blame, instinctively trying to protect yourself. Even if you have every right to blame your caretakers, parents or anyone else who has harmed your trust. There comes a time you have to let go.

Who better than you, knows who you truly are?

The term ‘ego’ is often negatively associated. However, sometimes it is perfectly fine to disconnect from your environment for a little while and put yourself first.  Accept we can’t control all, explore our positives and limitations. To take a step back and take a good look at yourself, at the people in your life, at your choices.

Trust is a Core Key

It isn’t easy and it takes courage to start listening to your own voice and no, don’t just dismiss what your loved ones are saying immediately. However, you know your own truth. What is good for you, what is not. You know deep within, in your core, if advice is suitable for you, if it leads you in a better direction, on your unique journey. Start trusting yourself to build a solid foundation, meaningful relationships and Be The Master Of Your Life.
