Listen now:

Today, we are beginning a series of discussions about Trust.

Trust is defined as an assured reliance, or firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.  After discovery, typically, a betrayed partner feels a loss of trust in any or all of the following areas: With yourself, your spouse, with others around us, and God.

Our first discussion will revolve around, “How do I trust myself, again?” I trust him and I was completely wrong. I gaslit myself by tamping down my intuition. So, how can I ever trust my own perceptions, again?”

We Will be Discussing:

  • Personal experiences we had with losing trust in ourselves.
  • How do you know when you’ve lost trust with yourself? Or, how do we see lack of self-trust in our clients?
  • How do you know when you are starting to trust yourself?
  • How can we offer hope to our listeners that it is possible to build or rebuild trust in themselves after betrayal.
