Mutual Confidence


Most of us have two basic questions about others when we enter into a relationship. They are: Can I trust you? And, do you really care about me? Depending upon our previous success in partnerships with others-personal or business-the answers may be slow in coming. Confidence in another is often developed gradually as those involved in the relationship commit themselves to each other’s success and happiness. Although trust and confidence are the basic underpinnings of all successful relationships, they are fragile. A relationship that has endured for months or even years can be irreparably damaged by a few unkind words or a single thoughtless act. Don’t allow yourself to act in haste or to lose control of your emotions in important relationships.

  1. A friend wrote me this morning,

    "See, when one lives in Cuba one is a pawn of the situation on which the government puts you in.
    People are to scared, too frightened to think and to act.
    They fear the government, they are in their hands. Please don't be mad at her. She was probably too terrified and to scared to know what to do. The sharpest mind becomes a dull inanimated object in that country."

    He's right, of course.

    Yuliet couldn't attend her visa interview on Monday b/c of the machinations of the Cuban system. However, support from USINT is strong and they will accomodate Yuliet and receive her as soon as her paperwork is in order.
