When Trust Breaks Down

What do you do when trust breaks down?

This episode is packed with tips and advice from CrisMarie and Susan on this topic because this is one of the main reasons why sometimes teams and couples don’t work. In most cases, one side of the party isn’t aware that trust has been broken. How we react is usually a way of showing how we understand, process, and interpret our world. They both advise you to talk to the people around you and explain how you are building things and regather that trust. Stay vulnerable, curious, and encouraged to fix the issues that pop up at work and at home.

In the end, it is much easier to discuss these trust issues via conversations than to eat up our feelings.
