About this photo: “Trust is something I have always had trouble with. Trusting others… trusting myself. I have been known to get a bit paranoid and think people are against me, which makes it nearly impossible to let people in — be it family, friends, doctors, anyone. I understand now that it is at least partly due to my illness, and perhaps my history – having been bullied growing up – but it doesn’t help the thoughts from creeping in.
One day I randomly looked up, and the word “trust” was written across a most beautiful blue sky. I’m not sure why it was there, but it spoke to me. Trust is a delicate thing, especially when you are trying to stay balanced, just as this word was so delicately written across the sky. I knew that the slightest thing could make the “trust” disappear, however, it’s mere presence was encouraging. I know I must get better at trusting if I am going to heal, and this was a very clear sign!”
