Finding people in this world that you trust is very important to each of us. Whether it is a family member who has always had your back or that best friend who has helped you through the crazy in your life, finding someone you can trust helps us to feel secure.

I came across a message the other day from Brene Brown talking about trust. The acronym she uses to define trust is BRAVING.

  • B = Boundaries - you respect my boundaries, and when you are unclear about what is okay or not, you ask.

  • R = Reliability - you do what you say you will do.

  • A = Accountability - you own your mistakes, apologize, and make amends.

  • V = Vault - you don’t share information or experiences that are not yours to share.

  • I = Integrity - you choose what is right over what is fun, fast, and easy.

  • N = Non-judgement - we can talk about how we feel with no judgement.
