Hello World, let’s see how this post unravels. I trust myself to tell whatever is in me, but cunningly or curriously I don’t know how to tell it this time around. I am therefore trusting the universe to inspire me to tell it as it types out, and that you my readers trust what you read or make of it.
Gladly for starters, I am in the atlantic city of Limbe where even the rain doesn’t steal its magic. I trust those who live or have visited such cities feel what I say or mean…
Now, my intention with this post is three fold:
- I want to share some how I got to Trust To Tell;
- How you can work at Trusting To Tell;
- Why you should work at Trusting to Tell.
The above aligned, let me start by recalling that I know deeply about this issue of Trust because I have had to face it, deal eith, been dealt by it and finally make peace with it…kindof being able to define it in each situation, review my expectations, appreciate or let go, and tell only so much or tell/do it all with no self recriminations or regrets…
To get to the above, I had to figure out how to Trust To Tell not only my story so far, but all my issue with Trust in the first place. I had to learn to Trust my ownself to tell it to myself and my face without literally pulling my hair or self harming in any way; I also had to figure out how to Trust To Tell others without Fear of their actions or reactions… To keep this part brief, I will summarize that I worked on the different issues with various professionals including a life coach and a psychotherapist and of course with myself and my God…some friends and family contributed directly or indirectly.
My journey I share so as to inspire you to work at Trusting To Tell. We all have something we want to tell, that is human nature. Yet, if we can’t Trust, then telling is near impossible… We must be willing to be vulnerable over and again, to even anticipate hurt, I know I know this ain’t easy but what is? It is so difficult especially if we tried to trust as children and felt shut up, ignored, abused, ridiculed and etc Trust has to be accompanied by forgiveness or should I say ushered? You forgive yourself, you forgive those youvfeel took your trust for granted, and you prepare to forgive those who may do so again… That way you give yourself permission to even consider Trusting all over again…
Thirdly, we all need to Trust To Tell or else we could lose our sanity at some point. Another point I want to make is that who we Trust To Tell may be trusted for one and not for another issue and so on… It ain’t with any given formula. We also have to be prepared to trust the unknown, the in familial, the stranger because we mere mortals can’t tell who is the vessel of our Grace and redemption.
I trusted to tell it to the world and I trusted myself to tell it as is… I forgave myself for all, forgave any I thought had taken me and my story and life for granted, and I already forgave the world if I was going to be misunderstood, taken for granted once more etc. In the end, my Peace of Mind was my priority in my journey to Trust To Tell. I wish you same.
Shalom – dare to Trust to Tell however you figure it out and no matter how long it takes
