This is the science of trust. BRAVING is tool to help measure self, partner, and a relationship in terms of where trust is at. Individual can measure where struggles are and where maybe needs to improve things are. From Brene Brown
B Boundaries. I/We can say what is okay and what is not okay
R Reliability. I/We do what we said we would do. We can be counted on
A Accountability. I/We are responsible for ourselves, our own happiness, and apologize when necessary
V Vault. What is discussed and happens in the relationship is respected and honored. I/We do not share indiscreetly or arbitrarily outside of us.
I Integrity is choosing courage over comfort. Integrity is choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy. Integrity is actually practicing our values instead of just professing them.
N Non-Judgmental. I/We withhold judgement of each other’s actions and motives
G Generosity. I/We give the most liberal interpretation to someone’s behavior and motives.
