The Trust Thing…

Trust you read it…

Read After Burnout

images-576I have always been warned that I have a trusting nature. Indeed, it is the type of nature whose trusting naivety gets me into trouble. I have always tried to see the best in others until I hit the brick wall that was my life’s full-stop.

After the brick wall, I had a different take on people. I shied away from them. I was a reverse-leper who wanted only to be quarantined against the possible damage that people could inflict.

During this time, I lost my job, my confidence, and my trust (I didn’t actually lose my job, I lost itand it never found me again).

This is the story of what happened to me when anxiety took a grip. I lost my senses, I lost my job, and I lost me. I then turned to writing to find those things that had gone missing. How can you teach when you believe that education is a business that is failing in its primary remit of helping to create a better society?

It is an Odyssey through my life over the last twelve months and a retracing of my steps to discover how I found myself there. More than all of that, it is a re-evaluation and a rejoicing of all that which I call life. Happy reading and I hope it helps. There is madness, Everyday Madness, and not all of it comes from within.

  1. It’s un-nerving when a traumatic event makes your whole world shift. Everything we once knew for certain becomes uncertain. It takes baby steps to regain a grasp onto life, the new life we have embarked upon….often a life we didn’t choose but on which we are treading whether we like it or not. Thankfully we find people who help us along the way…..I’m thinking of two oldies and two young whipper snapers who manage lighten the load for each other with as we tackle the awsome task of developing young minds 🙃

  2. That Trust Yourself quote is how I try to live my life. When things are chaos and darkness, I just remember everything I’ve already survived. I remind myself to quit wasting energy fighting and trust my strength to find my way back to light.
