Manual – Trust and Respect

Day 2 asks how we would feel if the person we chose abided perfectly to the model. I had put down the words trust and respect. I was having trouble seeing how I can trust someone that has proved unworthy of trust. I went back and sorted what feeling I would have if I felt trust (which now I see more as a thing and not my feeling in this case) and it would be safe. Then now I believe I need to back And build an intentional model around this feeling? I may not HAVE trust for her but I can still FEEL safe around her if I follow the intentional model around this. It’s tricky with the trust and respect because I want to feel that way for the person. Just like love, it’s an active feeling we can choose for someone. How do we incorporate actively trusting and respecting someone when what we need to trust and respect is not there?
