trust - assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something; one in which confidence is placed; a charge or duty imposed in faith or confidence or as a condition of some relationship
contented - feeling or showing satisfaction with one's possessions, status, or situation
Sounds simple enough.
So why are they both seemingly impossible for me, especially the first? I suppose you can't have one without having the other.
Therein lies my problem.
I used to be the kinda person who would automatically trust someone and if they betrayed it, then it was gone. The number of people who screwed it up is infinite. And so, now ya gotta earn it.
Very few people have. VERY few.
To those of you reading this that are close to me and know they lack my trust, I'm sorry. But you've given me good reason to think twice.
I stand by the tried and true earning process.
Well, when you put it that way....
