In this era of uncertainty, it has become wearisome to remain optimistic and complacent. Somehow, Make It Out (Outro) x Brent Faiyaz has informally become the sound track to this movie called life. Our safe havens have been unexpectedly intruded and disturbed our calm. Many have passed on, jobs have been lost, money has been tight, and relationships are being questioned. The life experiences we looked forward to have been stripped of its value. Insecurities and self-doubting may arise causing us to subtly pull away from loved ones, ourselves, and life. We are constantly trying to figure out “what should we do?” or “what can we do?” The answer is trust. As a noun, trust is defined as “the confident expectation of something or someone; hope.” For example, we trust people who are honest, effectively communicate, and have integrity. On the action level, trust involves doing something without fear and uncertainty. Ultimately, words and action have to correspond. Mistrust plays a dominant role in lives that have been affected by traumatic events and as a valid response for people who have been deceived. Trust is essential to the happiness of society. Without it all we have is fear.
Although our circumstance may not be ideal right now, the mission is to keep pushing forward. In this pandemic we not only have to trust others, but most importantly trust ourselves – and any higher being or entity you may believe in. Trust will help preserve love and overall personal well-being to help bring light to dark situations.
