My world opened up a little more yesterday and I came across a term or colloquialism that I’ve never come across before entering my second year of university. ‘Trust issues’. I really really really don’t get it.
What does that even mean? Trust issues as in difficulty trusting someone. But is that supposedly applicable to just strangers, friends, family, everyone? It’s understandable if one does not trust a stranger in a way that one might trust a friend. However, if you doubt your friend, if you don’t trust your friend how can they really be your friend? How can they trust you if you don’t trust them?
Is someone one with trust issues, someone who is more afraid of being betrayed than someone else? And how did this fear ever came into existance? Personal matters, I suppose.
But isn’t it better to trust than to doubt? To doubt can be so accusing, especially for someone who really will stay by your side, who really will take care of you until the day they die. Those kind of people are rare to find but if you start with yourself – to trust a little more can make a whole lot of difference, and not in a bad way. To trust more than to doubt may be the best change a person could make to themselves.
For me right now, I’m still confused. I really need the opportunity to see it from someone else’s point of view.
