Trust is when you place everything you have into the hands of another.
A friend of mine was laying in bed with the woman of his dreams when she said these words, “You are holding me in your hands, please don’t break me.” Powerful. When I heard that, I intrinsically understood for the first time what real trust was all about. In its purest and most potent form, trust is when you put everything you have into the hands of another and hope that they don’t fuck you up. When you do that, you will experience the power of trust. To know that someone isn’t going to let you down when you need them the most. No matter what, this person is a mountain, immovable. They only have your best interest in the forefront of their mind at all times. They set intention to their actions – those actions in turn nourish the relationship and amplify synergy. When someone does this to you, believe me, you’ll know it. You’ll feel it. This is the antithesis of a toxic relationship. And this can only happen when that individual is operating at the highest level of thought and vibration. They are radiating endless potential. They understand who they are, and have built trust in themselves through right action. That’s why they are able to share that with you. That’s why it seems like magic, because it is. These are the relationships I want to be in.
Someone once said to me, “You can’t have it all.” This person was referring to someone he was dating. There was an interest that he had, that he wanted to share with her. It was important to him. But she wasn’t into it, she didn’t approve. She didn’t want to share it with him. I got the idea that he was settling based on how he described the situation. She was seemingly a good partner, but not everything he had hoped for. How many people are in a similar situation? Can’t have it all you know. They’re good enough. Might not find someone better. Many times we don’t trust ourselves enough to set a standard of living which excludes compromising. Because of that, we can’t experience the life we truly want because we don’t trust ourselves. We don’t think it’s possible to get what we really want because we don’t trust ourselves enough to get it. And in that state, we can’t experience a synergized relationship built on trust.
I don’t like good enough, I never have. That’s why it makes me sick to my stomach when I settle. Settling doesn’t foster trust in yourself or others. It creates regret. When you stop settling, and break through your terror barrier, you get results. Once the results come, you begin to trust yourself. Once you trust yourself, you have the courage to trust others. Real trust. The kind of trust that says, “You are holding me in your hands, please don’t break me.”
