How We Choose to Move Forward
This is a place where any number of reactions might happen. Michele could have gotten angry, defensive, hurt, you name it. I could have been ugly, defensive and over-reactive. What happened next instead deepened our trust and respect for each other.
The building blocks of trust
Safety is Key to Trust
Michele and I, even in our sisterly disagreements, have stayed and worked through our rough patches. We have created agreements around how we will bring up issues when they are small so that those issues don’t blow up and cause our friendship to fade away. After all, what is a disagreement other than a lack of clarity about what our agreements are? Along the way, we have clarified and adjust our agreements to fit what our relationship needs. We honor each other and our friendship. And, this has been crucial for building the trust between us.
