Today’s relationship challenge is focusing on the trust aspect.
Challenge #26- Honest Communication
This may seem easy but sometimes it’s not and it’s not necessarily as simple as it sounds. It is important to create boundaries, to learn how to say no when you don’t want to do something, be reliable and truthful and to mean what you say. Don’t agree to do something if you don’t truly believe you will. It’s better to deny someone something that to make them think you will pull through and don’t.
Benefit- If you always agree to everything eventually you will get played out, annoyed or both which will lead to fights. If you continuously flake on responsibilities and/or commitments they will begin to distrust your word that you will do anything you say you will do.
