They asked me “What does trust mean to you?”. My answer:
It is ’embracing vulnerability’.
The funny thing about trust is even if you are honest and offer to help people all the time, building trust doesn’t come that easy.
However, if you dare to be vulnerable and ask for help from someone, that person is more likely to trust you.
I find this fact fascinating.
After all, it is not about being vulnerable by itself; it is about being confident enough to explore your vulnerability.
Trusting yourself is the first step of all…
From the smallest amoeba to the grandest of galaxies, we define ourselves by our borders. Our boundaries. I am me. Therefore, I am not you. We are safe within our territory. But borders can be places of instability, of danger. Cold fronts collide with warm. Dynamic energy explodes.
And yet… it’s at the edges, the frontiers between us, where ideas are exchanged, where knowledge is gained.
I am me, but I must push past my borders if I’m ever to truly know you.
