“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment unless you trust enough.”
I often hear clients tell me they have “trust issues”. The ability to trust another rests in YOUR ability to predict ANOTHER’S behavior. In essence, to calibrate well enough, BEFORE they choose an action, so you can decide your response in advance. Then you will trust what makes good sense to trust and trust your decision NOT to trust what’s not trustworthy. Learning the set of skills that enable you to get this level of knowing the difference is easier than you think.
