Trust is one of the most crucial aspects of a relationship.. Whether it is a professional relationship or a romantic one, trustworthiness, honesty, and loyalty are the traits we seek in a partner.
A romantic relationship with firm trust can stand the test of time, distance, misunderstandings, and anything else that comes its way. The tiniest doubt can take away the peace from your mind, and the soul connection will quickly be lost.
“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Poem – Trust
Trust is the glue that holds you tight, When the world around you seems to be falling apart. It’s the hand that you hold in the dark, When you’re lost and can’t find your mark.
Trust is the light that guides your way, When you’re feeling lost and astray. It’s the warmth that you feel in your soul, When you’re with someone who makes youfeel whole.
So cherish the trust that you have found, And let it grow and spread all around. For when trust is strong, love will thrive, And together, you’ll conquer all and survive.
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them” -Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
“Friendship- my definition- is built on two things. Respect and trust. Both elements have to be there. And it has to be mutual. You can have respect for someone, but if you don’t have trust, the friendship will crumble.” – Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Build Trust with yourself one yoga pose at a time…
Once upon a time, there was a young woman named Sarah who was new to yoga. She was nervous about trying new poses and didn’t trust herself to do them correctly. One day, her yoga teacher asked her to try a challenging pose called the “Eagle Pose.” Sarah was hesitant at first, but her teacher encouraged her to trust herself and try the pose.
Sarah took a deep breath and slowly lifted her leg up and over her other leg, wrapping it around like an eagle’s wings. She felt wobbly at first, but then she remembered to trust herself and her body. She breathed deeply and focused on the pose, feeling strong and confident.
As she held the pose, Sarah realized that trusting herself was the key to unlocking her full potential in yoga and in life. She learned that when she trusted herself, she could do anything she set her mind to.
So whenever Sarah felt nervous or unsure in yoga or in life, she remembered the Eagle Pose and trusted herself to soar. – The end
