A lack of trust will affect the strength of our social, mental, physical and emotional health. To have trust is to have faith that someone has your back. Where we fail to trust our judgment, or our gut instinct, we won’t trust ourselves, therefore we will resist trusting others.
Negative beliefs attach themselves to anyone who lacks trust in others, which means they’re likely to attract similar people who reflect those same negative beliefs, rather than challenge them. Being around people who are distrustful is exhausting, especially when their distrust is tied to people and previous events.
But it’s not to say we can’t change. We all have the ability to change. The reality is that we must have faith in ourselves, trust and respect ourselves because those attributes will always replicate in our relationships. We must have the ability to distinguish between healthy situations and unhealthy situations.
When we get trapped into feelings of indecision, inaction and distrust, those will always feed into our psyche, into our relationships. It is important for others to have trust in us and for us to trust other people.
We are seeing a problem of trust in governments, in society and in the wider world. Where their decisions don’t concur with the universal principles, trust will be an issue, people will start to work against each other and things will work out badly.
We’re destroying ourselves by our selfish attitudes, through our egos, and the choices we make. Instead, we must be selfless and act in accordance with the universal principles.
