Daily Draw: Runic Tarot ~ Trust

I wonder if we have such a hard time trusting because maybe we aren't or at one time weren't trustworthy ourselves? Lord knows none of us are perfect, ever, and you can take that statement to the bank. You may not be unfaithful but you might look through a wallet. You may return incorrect change to the clerk, but you may also look through someone else's medicine cabinet. You lie awake at night worrying about what your 13 year old daughter is doing, because you know what you were doing at 13. Didn't seem dangerous then did it? But it sure does now.

I'm reminded that trust is earned and even when we know we are trustworthy, sometimes that isn't enough for someone else. Along with that trust lies faith. "I know you'll never hurt me" is a difficult step. If someone can't take that step we need to realize that not only do they need to trust us, they need to trust themselves. Sometimes that is the stumbling block.

"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live." ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1749-1832
