IS YOUR 'TRUST' BUILT ON EXPECTATIONS OR AGREEMENTS?
WHAT ARE YOU TRUSTING YOUR PARTNER WITH/TO DO?
Define the trust that you are seeking.
If you don’t know if you can trust someone because they aren’t acting the way you would act,
or how you want them to act or living up to some expectations —
It’s time to take a step back.
Are you are trusting them to act off of expectations?
Which will most likely lead to disappointments, resentments & feelings of distrust.
Or are you trusting them to act in integrity with agreements you’ve discussed.
Ask yourself: What expectations do I have around my partner, their behavior, our relationship?
Bring them into a conversation (Hey babe, can I share with you something I was reflecting on….I realized I have these expectations….)
Inquire about your partner’s as well (Are there any expectations you have of me or our relationship? )
Transform them into agreements (What are you both willing to commit to in terms of showing up in your relationship?)
