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.
