Michelle Reina says the vast majority of compromised and damaged trust are small and subtle, and they can have an accumulative impact. There is a myriad of small, subtle ways that trust gets compromised: a single act, a single misstep. And a pattern of these breaches of trust that add up over time, we begin damaging the health of our relationships.
We rebuild trust when we start to reframe those experiences. We consider the bigger picture or extenuating circumstances, and we give the benefit of the doubt to the person who hurt us or let us down. And we always have to take responsibility for how we respond, how we move forward, and how we forgive ourselves and others.
