It feels easier to trust others than to trust ourselves.
After all, if something goes wrong, we can shed any responsibility of the outcome and blame the other person.

Because we are afraid of being wrong and having a finger pointed at us?
What if we separate being “right” or “wrong” from the act of trusting ourselves?
What if we see trust as a practice, like meditation, that unto itself is independent of the outcome?
