Trust is a careful balance between too much investment and fear that everything could just fall apart.
Trust is vulnerability.
Trust is showing someone the parts of you beneath the mask.
Trust is difficult.
Trust is terrifying to me.
But trust is important.
Because those people you trust, the good ones, they are the ones that enrich your life.
So fear is to be expected. It hurts because they matter.
But I matter too.
So trust is worth the work.
