The best way to allow your doubts to ferment and grow is to deny them and hide them.
“To create trust, share your distrust”. This line made me stop, get a pencil, underline the words, start the page, and read it again. “To create trust, share your distrust”. It made so little and so much sense. The best way to allow your doubts to ferment and grow is to deny them and hide them. When you let them out, when you share them they can be addressed and fade away.
How do we create spaces where we can admit our distrust? How can we do this in our homes, let alone with our clients? In my own life its taken a complete relationship breakdown to get to the point where this comes out. What kind of strength is required to make this a daily practice? What kind of power comes from getting this right.
I get this lesson over and over in my life. I struggle so much to learn it. We have to let the darkness and doubt out, we must face the uncertainty, find the ability to be honest about our fears. Only then can we move through them. This is a truth that applies at every level, as individuals, in our relationships and for organizations as a whole.
