Because I’m human, some of these beliefs are contradictory – I apologise.
I trust that things happen for a reason.
This is so easy to believe when things are going right. But I’ve realised it’s more important to trust things happen for a reason when life isn’t going to plan. And to believe it will all be okay in the end.
I trust that I know what my body needs.
Fruit? Veg? Greasy Chinese? Detox tea? Sex? A mental night out? Submitting to my temptations has got me into trouble once or twice, but my body felt better after. You win some, you lose some, right?
I trust that I know what my mind needs.
Quiet time, house music, productivity, distraction.
I trust that if it’s meant to be, it will be.
This is very similar to trusting that things happen for a reason. But especially important when applying for jobs and trying to play it cool with a love-interest.
I trust that you make your own luck.
Sitting on your arse, waiting for good things to happen is not desirable. Get up, make shit happen.
I trust that true love can withstand anything:
distance, other people’s opinions, sickness.
I trust that the loneliness has served to make me a stronger person.
This has been one of the hardest truths I’ve had to believe in. At times, loneliness has felt like a crack in my being, splintering through me, threatening to break me apart. But it’s also meant that I can enjoy my own company and take myself to lunch and comedy shows. I have also read a lot. And it’s meant I have had some life-changing experiences.
I trust that people come and go in my life for a reason.
Likewise, I come and go in other people’s lives for a reason.
