Where trust is high, relationships thrive. Where control is high, relationships die.
The deepest wounds come from those closest to us. Heal our relationships and we heal our world.
When it comes to our relationships there is an inverse relationship between trust and control. They are opposites. Many times we think the opposite of trust is distrust, but it’s control. When trust is high, there is no need for control. But if you do not trust, the response typically is to control – especially in relationships.
Learning to be trusting and gracious, as well as to be trustworthy- will transform our relationships.
