The more I trust, love and respect myself, the more I trust, love and respect others.
The more I trust, love and respect myself, the more others trust, love and respect me.
The more I trust, love and respect myself, the more others, trust, love and respect others.
Trust begins with me.

Who and what do you trust?
How much do you trust yourself?
How trustworthy are you?
What do you need in order to trust? 

Trust is essential to feel confident.
Trust is an important aspect of loving relationships.
Trust in oneself requires sensitivity to what is.
The question arises: Does anything ever last?

The Four Agreements ( by Don Miguel Ruiz) support the Development of Trust.
Take Nothing Personally.
Make No Assumptions.
Always Do Your Best.
Keep Your Agreements.

When we give our best and share our truth, we teach others the way to live with honest and trust. 
When we share freely and care for others with fairness for all, we live and teach trust.
When we are willing to forgive mistakes, others and our own, we support being trustworthy.
When we understand that every thought, word and deed is teaching everyone everywhere, we teach trust.

It is with our thoughts and words we teach trust.
It is with our behavior and appreciation that we teach trust.
It is with our willingness to listen with our hearts that we learn to trust.
It is allowing others to be free to learn to trust themselves that we remember to trust everyone is learning.

Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to trust our own choices.
Sometimes we need to forgive ourselves for changing our direction.
Sometimes we need to allow others to change their minds and feel safe in change.
Sometimes we realize we need to trust there will always be change.

Such is the nature of life: we can trust in change.
Change is constant.
Thoughts change. 
Feelings change. 
Behavior changes. 
Choices change.
Our direction changes.

We experiment in life to find what works and what matters to us.
We explore to determine what we want to do and be and have.
We try varying relationships to see where our needs are met.
We choose multiple options and choices with varying consequences.

Trust in unfailing change.
Learn to seek inner guidance and direction each moment.
Recognize life teaches us to trust in the highest Good for us all.
Be trustworthy and teach trustworthiness to everyone.

Trusting you as I trust the Goodness and Love within me.

Erikson’s psychosocial Stage 1 - Trust vs. Mistrust <
•  The first stage of Erikson's theory of psychosocial development occurs between birth and one year of age and is the most fundamental stage in life.
•  Because an infant is utterly dependent, the development of trust is based on the dependability and quality of the child's caregivers.
•  If a child successfully develops trust, he or she will feel safe and secure in the world. Caregivers who are inconsistent, emotionally unavailable, or rejecting contribute to feelings of mistrust in the children they care for. Failure to develop trust will result in fear and a belief that the world is inconsistent and unpredictable.
•  Of course, no child is going to develop a sense of 100 percent trust or 100 percent doubt. Erikson believed that successful development was all about striking a balance between the two opposing sides. When this happens, children acquire hope, which Erikson described as an openness to experience tempered by some wariness that danger may be present.
