We trust ‘people’ only so far. It’s what life teaches us.

I know I get resentful when some one trusts me ‘like people’ rather than Trust-Me (even though I know I’m more ‘like people’ than I care to admit. On the other hand, I get angry sometime when I ‘Trust-You’ and you end up inevitably just ‘like people.’

Trust is never a perfect system. I trust that :)

Melissa Karnaze November 9, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Yeah, trust is a system that is constantly in need of updating. Ideally you trust everyone individually, but that takes a lot of work and time… and it’s never complete!

I’m not sure I get what you mean about someone trusting you “like people”? Do you mean they don’t really get to know you but instead make assumptions based on the “human nature” script that they expect for you to go by?

Patty @ Why Not Start Now? November 10, 2009 at 1:46 am

Hi Melissa – This is interesting. I don’t so much think of trust in terms of individuals, but rather in relation to a deeper human archetype of trust, which includes both light (things like hope, optimism, faith) and shadow (things like denial, naivete, gullibility). For me, each of us has within both trustworthiness and untrustworthiness, so I don’t often think specifically about whom I can trust. Instead I tend to start from a basic place of trust. And like you say, just because a person doesn’t share my world views or my values or an understanding of where I’m coming from, it doesn’t automatically follow that I can’t trust them.

Melissa Karnaze November 10, 2009 at 9:37 am

Patty, thanks for sharing your thoughts on trust. I think we could all benefit from learning to see the light and shadow in each person more realistically, as trust is sometimes used to avoid looking deeper.

I currently live with and am raising my son, who just turned 1, with someone I have no trust in. She reads my private journals, monitors my text messages, googles me, etc. She becomes a bedridden invalid at the first sign of a sniffle, and this just the tip. We didn’t know each other for very long when we had the baby together, and it’s a constant struggle with all the responsibilities of home as well as trying to somehow get to know each other, and learn how to trust each other.

The lesson that I’ve gotten so far, is that I have had to learn how to trust myself completely. This website has actually helped me in myriad ways with my situation, and I’ve tried to sneak material like this into the house hoping she’ll take notice. But anyway, I feel so much more in touch with my emotions and not ashamed of them because of this blog. So, thank you.

Melissa Karnaze November 10, 2009 at 2:34 pm

Word Ninja, it’s so great to hear that the articles have been helpful to you. Thank you for sharing your experience.

I’ve come to see trust in self as the foundation to any relationship, as close relationships can reflect the degree to which we can trust ourselves. Even just staying committed to trusting all of your emotions and that you can work with them in constructive ways, has a transforming effect on relationships, maybe in subtle, but undeniable, ways.

Trusting yourself completely is a tall order that most people frankly aren’t ready for. It also ties neatly into confidence and resilience, which I’ll be writing about in the future.

Self-trust is so important and it’s really just another facet of self-love/self-care. I wish everyone would follow your lead and commit themselves to this path! :)

WN November 11, 2009 at 8:39 am

Yes, self-trust has definitely shaped the person I am today. I don’t see my situation as a bad thing, I see it as the most positive growth I’ve ever had in my life. I feel like I have an identity and a purpose. I can’t rely on my partner to want the same for her life that I want for mine. In fact, I don’t even really view her as my partner or that we truly share a relationship at all. It’s one big codependent wet dream. I’d like to think I’m not part of the codependency, yet when I come across diagrams such as the Karpman Drama Triangle (are you familiar with this?) then I start to think that I’m an enabler in all of this, too. I feel like I too often try to be the rescuer in direct defiance to my own needs or for what is actually good for the other person. But I’m trying to change…

As I’ve said before, this blog is helping me a lot lately. Please keep up this amazing work.

Melissa Karnaze November 11, 2009 at 12:15 pm

Thank you for the support WM. It’s great that you are taking the opportunity to grow.

When it comes to codependency, it’s important to be aware of the definitions and the dynamics, but not to put too much power in the labels. I’ve seen the triangle before, and have been in the role of rescuer before as well. Codependency is easy escape from emotions, because it keeps you locked into drama.

Recovery is a gradual process, that comes from… again, getting in touch with your emotions, and then learning how to listen to your emotions so that you know what boundaries need to be in place — to stop the vicious cycle. I think that a good percentage of recovery comes with realizing the pattern, and that you need to start trusting your feelings. When the awareness snaps into place, you are in a good position to make the important changes.

‘Trust is not some right that comes with every friendship’. Very true. Though I think a lot of people consider friendship to just arrive like a package, where they expect certain things on demand from a person they’ve interacted with after a certain while. For example two co-workers who hang out after work on a regular basis would have an unspoken agreement or assumption about what to expect from their relationship based on how they met and how long they’ve known each other. As if to say “we’ve known each other for a year, we work in the same job, therefore it is socially acceptable for me to ask you for a loan, you know I’m good for it” I think some people treat friendship like something obligatory.

But I think the reality is that real friendship grows organically from a meeting, with constant two-way communication afterwards nourishing the relationship to a point of clear mutual understanding between two people. I feel like I have only one real friend in my life, and I believe this because I’ve known him for almost ten years and in all that time we’ve communicated constantly about a variety of topics, socialised in different contexts, but more important than anything else, we’ve never been afraid to GIVE for the friendship. He’d lend me any amount of money without question, the monetary amount is meaningless to us, it’s the act of giving that is meaningful. We have similar humour too which is the biggest plus I think actually, heh.

I’ve been burned many times, so I’m very wary about friendship and trust. I can rationalise the whys and hows all I want, but it wont change the fact that I dont want to repeat mistakes or be hurt again. I dont mind having a very small close-knit group of people in my life though, at least I would be comfortable in the knowledge that the people in my small group are people I can trust, rather than being part of a larger group of people I barely know.

Interesting point: my first ever ‘best friend’ from the age of 5 to 10 was a popular boy that took me under his wing and both played with me, bought me stuff, and also bullied and beat me up. I think this had a substantial affect on me in regards to the concept of friendship and trust!

Melissa Karnaze November 17, 2009 at 5:57 pm

Cihan, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I would agree that the “best friend”/bully had an effect on how you might naturally view the issues.

But, I think it’s also true for all of us, that imprinting does happen. I think the important thing is to, as an adult, be more mindful of our construct of trust.

But I think the reality is that real friendship grows organically from a meeting, with constant two-way communication afterwards nourishing the relationship to a point of clear mutual understanding between two people.

I think so too, I like how you describe it as clearer and clearer mutual understanding between two people. You can spend a lifetime developing this, and there’s always more to learn and understand about another person (and yourself), given all the different experiences you can have! That’s why on this site I’ve referred to self-actualizing rather than self-actualization. :)
