People have asked me ‘do you trust others?’

They say, it must be because I don’t trust myself.

That I don’t trust others.

I don’t know.

But I do know this.

I don’t trust others when I don’t know them.

I don’t know if they are a threat to me and they will act in my best interests.

And if I don’t trust myself it is because of the same reason.

I think I am unpredictable.

I don’t know myself.

I don’t know if I act in my best interests or I am a threat to myself.

Even if I were a threat to myself, knowing that will give me some confidence to trust myself.

At least I know, where I stand.

I have not explored the depths of who I am.

I don’t know how I will react to people, things and situations.

I don’t know me.

And how I can I trust me when I don’t know myself?

You don’t trust yourself because you don’t know yourself.

One must know himself.
