If you worry your trust issues are preventing you from connecting with men, and even costing you friendships with with other women, here’s how you can begin to let your guard down so you can trust men and create meaningful connections.
Have you been blindsided and you find that you’re guarded because of it?
It’s not that you don’t trust men. The truth is that you don’t trust yourself.
- You don’t trust that you’ll recover quickly enough
- You don’t trust you can choose wisely enough
- You don’t trust that you’ll have the confidence to leave, even though you know it’s a dead end story
I have intimate experience with this. I’ve shared stories of my phone checking because women like us have an need to know…
We want to know what’s coming next… “do we have a future together? Is he messing around? Can I trust him? Is he who he says he is?”
Even in all my efforts, my skepticism was never satisfied.
Then, I realized that I had enough with the emotional turmoil, and I wanted PEACE of mind.
My questioning was getting me no where and soon I acknowledged that I can’t change a man.
But, I could change myself!
Here’s what I did to not allow mistrust and skepticism to affect my emotions and my interactions with men, and you can do it too.
First, I acknowledged my part in how I was showing up in a way that blocked any attempt to create meaningful connections.
Then, I identified the standard I wanted to live in. I wrote it in my journal. You see, I had this vision of being a woman who’s light, whimsical, innocent, and unjaded. That’s what brought me peace. In order for me to get to that, I had to be guided by my own standard and allow it to dictate my decision making.
When you allow your own standards to guide you, you’ll begin to trust your body more. You’ll begin to trust yourself more, and so you can trust yourself to discern how you can show up in every situation.
Without it, best case scenario is that you’ll meet a man with whom you could have wonderful potential, but you’ll never know because you’ll be there with your guard up waiting to see if he has what it takes to break down your wall of reserve.
Worst case scenario is that, you’ll go crazy because your mind will start playing tricks on you, and you won’t be able to control it.
It’s time to examine yourself!
Tell me, what’s one small thing you can do, right now, to release your fear and create more ease so you can connect with men?
