How can someone trust others when the instant trust for oneself is lost? It’s almost impossible, and so as a result you become a mystery, not only to those around you but also to yourself.
Ofcourse then naturally there becomes a lack of confidence, self-esteem and an extremely high level of self-consciousness. A simple trip to buy groceries or maybe even leaving your room becomes a heated and intense self debate. You even begin trying your best to avoid making eye contact with The Familiar Stranger.
You see no matter how difficult it is, you need to have trust in yourself. You can’t be afraid. So what if you make a mistake, or two, or even three? The best part about being human is making those many mistakes then learning from them in order to become better a person.
You don’t want to be the person that’s thirsty but too scared to check if the mirage in the Desert is real or just an illusion. You may be missing out on something incredible.
Have some faith and trust you’ll make the right decisions. Follow your instincts and be ready to face any challenges that come your way.
Smile and stay strong. Xx
