All of us have been hurt, lied to and about, deceived or let down.  When that happens our humanness wants to recoil, become fearful, not take risks and become untrusting.  So what is the answer to this dilemma,  for if TRUST is the foundation for all relationships and we all have been hurt and want to avoid being hurt again, how can we TRUST?  How can we have loving relationships?

First, by building our own inner resources so that our safety and security lie stably within ourselves, not based on others.  You need to trust yourself more than you are concerned about trusting others.  Second, by developing an unconditional yes to life as it is!  Third, by developing a deeper relationship with God.
