“I can only trust you if when you make a mistake, you’re willing to own it, apologize for it and make amends.” Brené Brown

People are hard to hate close up. How to move in closer:

Boundaries
“There is not trust without boundaries.”

Reliability
“I can only trust you if you do what you say you’ll do” again and again.

Accountability
“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.

Vault
Keeping a confidence. Share only what’s yours to share.

Integrity
“Choosing courage over comfort, choosing what’s right over what’s fun, fast or easy, and practicing your values not just professing your values.”

Non-judgment
You and I both can struggle and ask for help

Generosity
“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.”
