open up and trust.

When someone opens up to you, without fear…..and reveals their past and their present….all of the parts of their life that they may be proud of, excited about, and ashamed of….they are trusting you….trusting that you won’t judge them, trusting that you will guard their words, and trusting that you will only consider what is between the two of you…..right now.   No matter what type of relationship this is…friendship, professional, or something intimate, opening up is vital. Having been in the company of all kinds, no matter what a person’s past is, no matter how colorful….I have far more respect  for, and trust in them for allowing me to hear their story, no matter what the content…..they thought that much of me.
