The toughest thing about the power of trust is that it’s very difficult to build and very easy to destroy. – Thomas J. Watson
The reason I don’t have many friends close to me is simply because I don’t trust many people with my heart. Throughout my life, I’ve experienced get heartache caused by the very people who were supposed to care for and protect me. As I get oder, this is something I try to overcome, meeting new people and connecting with people I used to know in an effort to increase my support base – but it’s still incredibly difficult. But as I move slowly into the second phase of my life, I know its important to at least try. I’ve made some new long internet pals through this fitness journey, those who I greatly respect and enjoy talking to. In real life, that hasn’t come to fruition. But I am working on trusting people more. It’s another one of those personal qualities I am learning to be better at.
