Original Artwork by Elicia Ward

“So often she was labelled ‘too trusting’, but an event blindsided her to the point that it stripped her of the ability to trust again...Till now...

Her soulmate must have known because she decided to put the past aside & attempt to trust one last time. It was only by perseverance of her true love that she was able to trust another. He taught her to feel safe, anchored in his love, all the while he shot arrows of love piercing through her self built armour to her beautiful soul that lay behind. She was finally free to be her true self, truly loved & truly blessed, left to safely shine for the rest of her days”

Trust is the greatest gift we can offer each other. When mutually embraced with gratitude, we openly blossom as our true self, colour reappears & we shine.

It’s a persons consistent actions filled with integrity that shoots the wounded souls who have had their trust broken. It heals them. The grey metal shield breaks away as their vulnerabilities splash out. 

It’s not a choice in who we trust, it’s the congruency of actions & words that are the persuading factor, & for this girl, it is the deciding word upon where she places her faith.
