Begin to Trust
"The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them." Ernest Hemingway
Trust plays a major part in many aspects of recovery; thus, it is vital that we develop trust in others to accept help and develop intimate relationships. It's amazing how many of us blindly trusted drug dealers and other addicted "friends" then when we enter recovery, we don't want to trust anyone. Take a risk and trust people who want to help you until they give you a reason not to. Believe it or not, there are many genuine people out there who want to help us. Finally, try to go a step further and trust a power greater than yourself. This can be nature, your higher self, the universe, or perhaps a creator, if you believe in one. You will be amazed how influential trust can be in your recovery.
