Emancipate Your Mind: 044: The 7 Ingredients of Trusting Relationships

  • by

Have you ever had a relationship where you didn’t feel entirely safe to be or express your full self?

Have you ever found yourself walking around on eggshells around a friend or family member?

Avoiding specific topics of conversation or stuffing difficulties in the relationship?

Do you find yourself arguing with those you love?

We ALL have relationships like this.

Often, we want to be closer to the people in our lives, but there is something there that keeps us from feeling completely safe to show up as our whole selves.

In this episode, we explore the 7 ingredients of trust Brené Brown discusses in her book, “Braving the Wilderness” and how they apply to our relationships with the people we love the most.

I specifically talk about how these principles apply to mixed faith relationships with parents, siblings, partners, and friends.

When we can communicate specifically where trust is being eroded, it makes it easier to correct these things and create more safety and intimacy in our relationships if both parties are willing to participate.
