Falling in Trust
Sigmund Freud most famously asked: “What do women want?” but never quite figured it out.
Well, let's posit the following: in English, it’s a small, five-letter word starting in T and ending in T, with only one vowel in between.
T R U S T
A very fitting vowel -- it's a U and looks like a receptacle -- a basket of sorts, with its feminine energy, able to contain and support the love it's carrying. But it's also right next to the S, a smooth consonant that bumps into the more masculine, harder Ts that become bookends, conveying that love. And the R is rippling in between, a fixture of pleasure.
When you think of the word T R U S T, it almost emulates lovemaking, doesn't it? Savor that word the next time you kiss your beloved.
So what do women want?
Absolute and unconditional trust in the person you love.
T R U S T is a beautiful bed you make and it's not just about cotton sheets or expensive mattresses. It's a bed of bliss you can rest in and relax in; a peaceful place where your heart resides; and a space without any worries about this love. Of course, that place isn’t built in a day, and it may likely require a confusing, messy construction -- but why settle for less than what your heart and body desires?
Love is nurtured in this sacred space.
When we fall in love, what we really fall in is a place of trust.
