People are hard to hate close up. How to move in closer:
“There is not trust without boundaries.”
“I can only trust you if you do what you say you’ll do” again and again.
“I can only trust you if when you make a mistake, you’re willing to own it, apologize for it and make amends. I can only trust you if when I make a mistake, I am allowed to own it, apologize and make amends.
Keeping a confidence. Share only what’s yours to share.
“Choosing courage over comfort, choosing what’s right over what’s fun, fast or easy, and practicing your values not just professing your values.”
You and I both can struggle and ask for help
“Our relationship is only a trusting relationship if you can assume the most generous thing about my words, intentions, and behaviors. And then check in with me.”

"'We've all done it.' You can't be perfect. You can't not make mistakes. The fact is we all do it. Somehow that phrase for me is just reassuring. So a good nights sleep and remember no one is perfect. It is that bad feeling. The answer isn't that you never experience bad feelings. You will feel it and you will screw up."
