Strength vs. Trust

I have two small tats on my wrist. One kanji for strength and one for trust.
As I continue to look at these symbols, I originally had the thought that these are strong points for me. People comment and compliment how strong I am, with all I do, and how trusting I am to give so much. But the more I start to think about it, the more evident it becomes that these symbols can be either my success or my failure. I try to be too strong, but wanting to do everything myself and wanting to be responsible for everything and everyone. I know I can't be, but I can't get past that thought. I trust so many people that I tend to get hurt. I trust and believe, which can be a good thing, until I get hurt by trusting the wrong person. I always give people the benefit of the doubt, I get hurt, and then it happens all over again. It is truly amazing how the first time we look at something, is not always how we see it again.
