When someone believes in you, it moves your heart.
When someone believes in your word and trusts your intentions, it deeply touches your soul.
When someone believes in you, you can see it in their eyes, in their words, in their silence, in the way they hug you, in how they smile at you, and also in how often they retweet you. It feels so good.
Sometimes others may believe in you more than you believe in yourself. This is very empowering.
However, many people have a very, very hard time believing in others.
When there is so much corruption, lies, thievery, and deception, it is often challenging to find someone to believe in–and sometimes it is even tough to believe in someone that is very close to you because of all the times you may have been let down before.
We need the FDA and other organizations to monitor our food supply for quality and safety, because we don’t believe in the manufacturers enough to be honest and loving in their preparations.
We have been deceived and betrayed by the government and many police officers who are suppose to be there to care and look out for our best interest and not their own. We are unsure if we can believe in them any longer.
We see the news everyday where people are doing horrendous actions to other people.
We read newsletters from professionals that we once respected that read something like, “I wanted you to be the first person to know that I am launching this program…” or “my new site is launching so….but don’t tell anyone yet!” Yet, on their Facebook page with over 4000 followers and their Twitter page is covered with these announcements. Therefore, we lose belief in the genuineness of this person…and others as a result.
Those close to us may have let us down in hurtful ways, like name calling, being abusive physically, mentally and sexually, talking behind our back to others, lying to our face, or in some other mean and careless manners.
We may have let ourselves down as well by calling ourselves names, hiding our true self, hurting another that we love, or some other action.
We lock our doors and our cars because we don’t believe in others.
We lock our hearts because we don’t believe someone can truly care for it and wont tear it up in pieces.
We hide our true selves because we don’t believe that others will honor us or we don’t completely believe in ourselves….mostly likely, though, it is both.
We fight with ourselves and others carrying around all this armor and ammunition…all because we don’t believe in anyone anymore.
So, when we are finally believed in by another person, this is very special. People have so many reasons why they don’t believe in others, yet they if they find it within themselves to believe in you…that is something to be cherished and something to be thankful for.
Is there someone in your life that you believe in? If so, let them know. Write them a letter, tell them, show them and let them know you appreciate that they do. And, above all….make sure you continue to be a source of them to have trust in.
People NEED to have people they can trust these days. People need to see that there are some people in this world that will treat others with honor and respect. People need to know that there are others that are truthful and loyal. When we KNOW that this is true, it is easier for us to put down our walls and open our hearts.
This song really touched me when I heard it for the first time a few weeks ago. To me, it brings home how amazing it feels when others truly believe in us. It feels really great…especially because it is often hard for many people to believe in others.
So when someone believes in you it truly is special, so cherish it, honor it, respect it, embrace it, and give them more reasons to believe in you.
The lyrics are included in the video, so I did not write them out today. Enjoy!!
