"Tell us about a time you took the less traveled path."
Of course this is a reference to the Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken." The meaning of which as been debated for decades. When I look at this blog prompt though my thoughts go to a conversation that I had a very short time ago about trust.
(Warning! Warning! Warning! We are about to get...PERSONAL)
After I typed the previous paragraph I went on to three or four more before I realized, I can't publicly, on my blog...go there.
tap tap tap tap tap,
tap tap tap tap...delete. )
I reveal a fair amount of personal stuff on this blog but there are some things that are far too intimate for me to publicly share. The details and origins of my trust issues? Yep, it's one of those things. Let's just say that like many of us I have some deep hurts in my past that left a few scars and one or two scabbed over, but not quite healed, wounds.We will leave it at that.
For me, in this moment, one of the less travelled paths would be to trust fully. The conversation I referenced above was one that made me realize how ill prepared I am do that and how much of that is due to my ability or inability to trust myself and my own feelings.
Always more work to be done...
(...and yeah, I guess I kind of went there anyway...)
