Post 634: Trust Given

June 18, 20241 min read

For part of my family's vacation we were on the beach at a resort that was fully enclosed. And so I spoke with my girls about them being able to go off together and do what they wanted.

My youngest was upset because she thought I was trying to leave her alone and there was a part of her that was scared at the thought. So my wife and I sat both our girls down and explained what we actually were doing was trusting them.

We trusted them to be safe, to be kind, to stick together and watch out for each other. They were both so used to seeing their friends check in with their parents all the time to do anything, it felt off for them to take responsibility for themselves. Even if it would only be to go to the pool in the morning while their parents were taking their time getting moving.

I think the whole world gets easier the more trust I am willing to both give and receive. Trust makes things better.
