This thing called… TRUST

Trust is a very simple word yet not easy to find in others. Perhaps experiences of disappointment and loss can explain feelings of distrust in a persons heart. The dictionary’s definition of trust is — reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety of a person or thing, confident expectation of something, hope. A person on whom or thing on which one relies.

If someone were to keep a promise, that person is trust worthy. However when done with bitterness, there actions show regret, the trust slowly weakens. Faith in that person also weakens and a decline in the relationship/friendship surely begins. Sometimes the words a person speak can also lead another to believe they are “trusting” or not. Eventually somethings gotta give, right? You either take the risk and trust regardless, or you “watch” and “observe” there every move…..every word. Sometimes the truth takes longer than you would like to reveal itself….. especially for the heart of the matter. Sometimes you end up playing Russian roulette.That’s what trust is these days. When it comes to trusting anyone, you are playing Russian roulette with your heart. Well, yes it depends on the relationship for whom you are trusting. You must have RESPECT for the person in order to TRUST them…… and vice versa! Nevertheless, you always risk something of yourself. That’s life! Life is full of twists and turns! We will get scammed by someone but hopefully not everyone. Eventually, you’ll learn a valuable lesson.

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you”. Fredrich Nietzsche

“Loving someone is giving them the power to break your heart, but trusting them not to”. Julianne Moore

“It was a mistake,” you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you”. David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary.

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.


About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
