Now Playing: Day 653-The Final Road To Survival
It's been one strange day! Is this Friday the 13th or did the UFO's final visit planet earth and invade human life-more like human minds?... I have been beyond stressed out and it sure didn't help my head or GP issues. I also learned today that its not safe nor too smart playing your own doctor and deciding when its OK to drive when you are still recovering from a concussion and having a bad day to start with. DUH! Live and learn. By the time it was 11pm I wasn't sure what happened to the day but I did learn a very valuable lesson about being cautious when putting trust in others. Another live and learn lesson but isn't that what life is all about anyways? Lessons learned?..
How would you define the word "Trust?"
*I heard once it meant to feel safe with someone. I like that definition.
*My dog. Because there is no judgment in him, he accepts me for who I am. He loves me just as I love him we are each others best friends. He would and has protected me and I would and have protected him. So I would define trust as my dog.
*Trust is a simple word that encompasses many facets. You have to have faith in another person so you can exchange this feeling of knowing the other person is ok.
*Not intentionally hurting me by taking pot shots, talking me down in public, or being critical. Always putting the relationship ahead in priority of everything and everyone else. Not lying or fibbing, or even feeling the need to hide something from me. Working on common goals by, among other things, not overspending on an agreed-upon budget. Respecting my concerns and feelings and not using them against me. All in all, feeling safe with someone is good way to sum it up.

*In this world where it seems like lying and cheating have become almost second nature to most people, trust is a really important word to me. It may be my favorite word. It means so much on so many levels. To me it is not just about feeling safe with someone, but it means being free to have faith in them. That, to me, is the best feeling in the world. Trust is so hard to come by these days. It should not be given easily. It needs to be earned. Proving you are trustworthy is just about the most worthwhile thing you can do.
