TRUST + COMMUNICATION = Intimacy.
In a world that is so inexplicably interconnected, how come we are all still struggling to intimately connect and communicate with the one’s we love? This may be because we’re all walking around with a shit ton of armour* on, which is preventing us from being vulnerable, from standing in our truth, and from showing up fully, afraid to be seen.
Maybe it’s the fact that trust is built over time, through the subtle daily acts of loving kindness…the way we are held…the empathy offered…and the safety we are made to feel.
Or that we all have different definitions of what trust is…that these definitions are ever evolving, and will 100% be influenced by our each unique past experiences.
Perhaps it’s that when two people are coming together, they’re each bringing their lifetimes worth of ‘stuff’ with them, down through the generations, of what they think and feel and believe and embody about trusting the people they love.
Trust is tough. It takes courage and vulnerability, and a certain level of self-awareness… It requires boundaries, and some serious communication between you and those you’re building your life with.
Above all, trusting others most certainly starts with trusting yourself, going deep into yourself to seek your truths, showing up for yourself, building your self-respect, and creating your own sense of safety. WE set the bar for how we want to be treated by our loved ones.
