    How Distrust and Mistrust Stops Intimacy

    in Motivation

    Intimacy conjures ideas of a private cozy atmosphere and is defined as an affinity for; a rapport,affection and confidence in an interaction.  Empathy, understanding, and compassion are at the heart of intimacy. Researchers are beginning of understand the relationship of depression among people due to the absence of intimacy in their lives. The need to feel part of a bonded community is universal; a desire for “ being at home” emotionally. This is reflected in a common Southern congenial expression, “Make yourself at home”.

    Current expectations in relationships are conditioned by previous experiences. Often we are expecting something in a relationship and not realizing this until  we are not getting it. Relationships can be sabotaged by hidden expectations and lingering disappointments. Emotional memory exists outside of time. We must be  aware of our own expectations (and how they are affected by our history) for there to be hope of developing intimate relationships Distrust is  a feeling that someone or something is not honest and cannot be trusted and is regarded with suspicion thereby eliminating confidence in the success of new circumstances.  

    Mistrust is a general sense of unease toward someone or something not necessarily based on experience but on instinctive. Mistrust can evoke “Mind Reading”  which is often related to a past disappointing relationship experience. We tend to expect what we previously had the opportunity to learn; we make assumptions based on our history. Then an action in the present, that is similar to a previous experience, triggers an intense negative explosive emotional reaction.

    It is imperative to learn how to change the hidden expectations that work to distort a relationship, because we transfer hidden expectations from our history to present day.

    I was just thinking...Real or Manufactured...Why do we mistrust one another?

    in Education

    Why do people mistrust one another?

    Do black people mistrust each other more than other people?

    Herman Melville wrote in his book the Whale or Moby Dick:

    “Ignorance is the parent of fear.” 

    But... is mistrust the child of fear?

    Mistrust used as a noun means: lack of trust or confidence; distrust.

    Mistrust used as a verb to regard with mistrust, suspicion, or doubt; distrust.

    But, where does the initial mistrust come from?

    “Knowing only a portion of a person, nation, state or world, misinterpretation of a person, or a situation or circumstance.”


                 Can mistrust be manufactured?

    AMERICAN MENTORS: A Gulf of Mistrust, Christmas Present

    in Relationships

    Last week we called on friends to include 2.1 billion Christians to touch and agree that Black Lives Matter. From our 2014 Christmas narrative we learned that lynching was a widely acknowledged practice in the United States until the middle of the 20th century.  The U.S. Senate resolved to apologize for its own failure to enact anti-lynching legislation.  As Ebenezer Scrooge might observe, that should be behind us as our ghost of Christmas past. 

    For demonstrators taking to the streets protesting, proclaiming and declaring equal justice, it’s a new season!  The injustice is called by another name, but the results are still the same.  The numbers add up to an increase in dead folk and an ever-widening Gulf of Mistrust.

    The President’s assessment of events on the streets and in the courtroom accurately portrait the problem America faces this week of Christmas present.  You can ask any of 2.1 billion Christians on earth about the jacked up arrest, trials and lynching of Jesus the Christ 2000 years ago, to get your sense of what needs to be done.

    In Christmas present, WE THE PEOPLE will need to realize WE ARE THE WORLD.  Our friends are watching, hoping for a brighter day.  So, let’s start living like Christmas future is a goal worth sharing by coming together to bridge what the president has termed, a Gulf of Mistrust.

    What will you do to make a change?  What will you do to save our own lives? You can tweet us @YouthUSA, like us on Facebook.com/YouthAchieversUSA or call in during our live show 657-383-1405 Saturday, 12 noon ET, 11 am CT, 9 am PT.

    Freddie Gray "Verdict", Mistrial leading to Mistrust? / Rape Culture must END!

    in Islam


    By now, you should know that a mistrial has been declared in the first case, involving Officer William Porter, in the case, involving the death of Freddie Gray, of Baltimore, who died, in varying levels of involvement, at the hand of 6 BPD officers.

    What seemed to be an open and shut case to many, has at this point, left anger and bitterness in the minds of many, as a guilty verdict was not rendered.

    While this decision does not constitute exoneration, by any stretch of the imagination, one can only guess that the eventual retrial, as well as the other 5, will be charged with emotion, anticipation and intense scrutiny, and depending on one's vantage point, a testament to the sense of justice for victims of police brutality, or a misguided desire to deny a police officer, the benefit of a doubt, in his or hers aim to serve and protect, in an honorable manner.

    We will also cover a very disturbing trend of rape, committed by soldiers, who have no sense of decency or humanity, or respect thereof, for their victims, primarily female.

    What has happened in Iraq and Uganda, where precious lives are being destroyed? While the physical lives may be spared, the mental, spiritual and physical scars may never be salvaged.

    We may have a special guest, to help to more insight on this issue.

    This week we will start the study of the Amazon Warriors of Dahomey. The account of the Warrior Women of Oyo by the British Vampire Sir Richard Burton in 1863. In order for us to analyze why we are in this state of Slavery as captives of Africa we must examine the STATES OF THE WEST AFRICAN FORESTS from which we came.  There are many who condemn the Black African American Woman for her incredible ability and strength.  We are abused by the very seed we have sown, the Black African American male. Some of our sisters are not our sisters because they have no idea how history records us. The Willy Lynch Syndrome was specifically developed to conquer the African Woman and make her believe that she was helpless. Why? Because we are the most formidable enemy of the White Devil and his slaves who follow his lead and continue to abuse us. Tonight we will study exactly what happened before the slave trade in the West African Forests where we were captured and sold. “The women’s military corps was fully functioning unit.  It’s women often termed Amazons by visiting Europeans- fought along side the corps of male soldiers in both offensive and defensive actions.The Asian Model of Production, in the fall of the Chinese revolution of An Lu-Shan during the T’ang period in the 9th century when the men were all slaughtered by the emperor and the women sold into slavery, we tried to prevent this from happening to us. Although our destines are extricably tied together African women and African men have lost the unity of struggle and fight together. Instead of us uniting to fight a common enemy today we fight each other, because our men have been trained to hate and mistrust us. We as a people must find out why this is happening and change it, through the study of our past victory against the White Devils.   This week “THE HISTORY OF AFRICAN CIVILIZATION” by E. Jefferson Murphy.

    With whom, with what can he, a man, identify? As a child he had no permanent male figure with whom to identify; as a man he sees nothing in society with which he can identify; as a man , he sees nothing in society with which he can identify as an extension of himself.  His life is built on mistrust, shame, doubt, guilt, inferiority, role confusion, isolation and despair.  He feels that he is something less than a man and it is evident in his conversation:  "The White man is 'THE MAN,' he got everything, and he knows everything, and a nigger ant nothing."  In society where a man is valued according to occupation and material possessions, he is without possessions.  He is unskilled and more often than not, either without possessions.  He is unskilled and more often than not, either marginally employed or unemployed.  Often his wife (who is able to secure a job as a maid, cleaning for White People) is the breadwinner.  He is therefore viewed quite worthless by his wife and children. He is ineffectual both in and out of his home me.  He cannot provide for, or protect his family. He is invisible, a nonentity.  Society will not acknowledge him as a man. He is a consumer and not a producer.  He is dependent upon the White man ("THE MAN") to feed his family and give him a job, educate his children, serve as a model that he tries to emulate. He is dependent and he hates "THE MAN" and he hates himself.  Who is he?is he a very old adolescent or is he the Slave he used to be?  "What did he do to be so Black and blue?" CHAPTER VI SLAVES CAN POSSESS NOTHING THE AMERICAN SLAVE CODE …. Man  was created proprietor of the earth, with dominion over the beasts of the field.  The humanity of the slave is denied, by denying to him any share in this original right of human nnature or capability of its exercise. 

  • "State Of The Black Family-Pt. 2-Why Do Black Women Mistrust Love?"

    in Lifestyle


    Continuing our discussion on the state of the Black family...Women's roles in relationships and a household are major. They are the bearers of life, the nurturers, the soft balance in a hard situation, and in essence...the first link to love for all of the people in their lives. When a woman is not at her best, balance is thrown off, because of the many hats she wears, love is always at the base. In today's society, women are harder, "independent", misfocused, and on another path. Parental love and intimate love are addressed as companionship and hook-ups, as women's resourcefulness and perserverance abilities have been beaten down by the many beasts of the modern world. Why do you think Black women have a problem trusting love? Join in tonight by calling 347-32-9967 at 10:30 pm EST.

    Three Things that Weaken the Believer, Part 2

    in Christianity

    TEXT: Mark 16:9-14

    Last week, we were introduced to a character from Pilgrim's Progress known as Little-faith. This unfortunate pilgrim was attacked by Faint-heart, Mistrust, and Guilt, and he never recovered from their assault. 

    One of the most disappointing things to see is a Christian who is supposed to have victory over the world, the flesh, and the devil, being distressed, depressed, and defeated. Yet, like Little-faith, that is what will happen to us if we don't watch out for the things that can weaken us. We dealt with one of those things last week -- the temptation to become faint-hearted, to become weary in well-doing. 

    Today, let's look at how to overcome a second issue which weakens believers, and that is the issue of mistrust or disbelief in God and what He says He will do.
    Before Jesus Christ went to the cross, He told His disciples, directly and indirectly, that He would rise from the dead three days later. However, when the third day came, the disciples did not believe the reports they heard that Jesus was alive. It is almost as though they did not even have hope that He would be resurrected as He said he would.
