Repairing Broken Trust
We've been heading down the road that building trust is how we LIVE right, and one of the biggest trust breakers is when we insist on BEING right. With that concept firmly in place now, we no longer look at our actions as right or wrong, but will they BUILD trust or TEAR IT DOWN? Continue with this in the forefront of your mind today. Make it almost like a meditation or mantra. "Will this action build trust? Or tear it down?"
You may be naturally trusting, and start everyone new in your life at 100% until further notice. Others start new people in their lives at 0% and they must earn the trust. Whether we start people out with 100% or 0%, eventually, everyone will break your trust. And you will break theirs.
We ALL break trust. The deciding factor is whether it was intentional. Intentionally breaking trust is very difficult to rebuild (witness the affair in a marriage, for a common example). But if our trust has been INTENTIONALLY BUILT, a mistake, an accident, a misstep is more easily repaired.
Intentionally build trust today. Then when you break it (and you will) it will be much easier to repair.
