When we are trustworthy people can rely on us. We can be counted on to do what we say we will do. If we make commitments, we follow through on them.
Being trustworthy also means that our outer words are aligned with our intentions. We seek to maintain a level of transparency that lets other people feel clear about who we are and what they can expect from us. We treat the trust of others as a sacred gift, knowing that it in trusting us they make themselves vulnerable and that we have the power to harm them.
Being trustworthy doesn’t mean we will never let others down. Rather, it is a attitude and a pattern of behavior that honors the trust placed in us.
