Hello! I love the way you are spellling out how trust can happen. For me, it is a moment to moment opening that equals trust. I did want to say that “speaking your truth” might be easier if you wait for someone to ask. My philosophy is that if they are not asking, if I am not invited to speak, then someone does not or cannot hear what I might say. Then, I would only be inviting argument or shut down by speaking my own truth into the space. What is the space calling for? What is being invited? What can I contribute? I can still own my own truth without speaking it aloud if the situation does not support that gesture.
