Trust Does It All ;)

Posted on: July 17, 2011

It’s a nice cool evening. I’m sitting on a swing in front of the sea looking at a bunch of kids dancing crazily and happily at the music of a wedding taking place in a nearby restaurant. Among those kids are my two boys! It’s actually the first time I see my older son dancing freely, confidently, and happily in the open air, and not caring about how many people would be watching or judging!

This scene certainly brings joy to my heart, but also makes me think of a very important point; what made my boy overcome his shyness and fear of judgement and dance so freely and enthusiastically in front of the whole compound, without even looking around to check if someone is actually looking at him? It is definitely not because he suddenly stopped caring about what others think of him. It is not because he wants to attract the attention of the people around him. It is not because he wants to impress someone around. It is not because he needs to prove anything whatsoever. In my opinion, it’s just because he feels extremely comfortable with the friends he’s dancing with. They haven’t been judgemental or picky; they are rather natural, supportive and caring. He’s not afraid to be made fun of, he’s not busy thinking how to impress, please, or fit in. In short, he trusts the people around him, and he feels free and happy!

Fear of judgement and eagerness to fit in destroy young souls and prevent them from enjoying the best of times. Kids need to truly trust people around them and feel supported and cared for, and they shall live freely, confidently, and happily ever after 😉
