Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.
—Stephen R. Covey

Something happened this week that I’m going to go ahead and call too personal to be shared with the internet, but it prompted a lot of vulnerability and openness and communication between me and [Booskie]. One of the first things we did was restate that we trust one another and the choices each of us makes, and that trust shone bright as day through the rest of our conversations. We came to a couple of new agreements to keep up with some changes and take care of ourselves/our relationship while still allowing tons of space for each of us to act as authentically and autonomously as we can. It is terrifyingly wonderful to value someone so much and feel just as valued in return. Trust makes so many things possible. I love me some him.
