Day 306 – Trust


Trust. Such a stupid word. We never trust anyone, not even ourselves and yet we use the word like it’s part of us. Do you trust anyone?

I often say that you cannot trust someone you don’t know and on that note we can safely say that most of us don’t know our inner self and have no desire of exploring it. Yes, we all say we do and maybe some of you even try it for a few days, a month, a year, but in the end you give up because a self exploratory journey is too difficult and never gives you the answers you want to hear. So, you give up out of fear. We give up out of fear.

We trust people with information, with advice, with our principles, dramas or past trauma, but when it comes to suffering, when it comes to real pain that’s happening in the present, we never trust anyone anymore and just to be safe and not get vulnerable, we will also slam the door to our soul into our own faces. Yeah, that’s trust alright, a word with no meaning whatsoever when it comes to your true feelings. So, can you be honest? Have you ever really trusted anyone?

About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
