If you want to understand how honesty and trust are related, this episode will help with that.
If you're anything like I was before recovery, you were (or maybe still are) unable to be honest much of time. Some of that dishonesty has to do with not trusting others. If you grew up in a chaotic or unsafe environment, that makes sense. Lying was self protective. However, now that we're adults and can choose who we surround ourselves with, it's easier to be around safe and caring others.
The thing that's news to me is that honesty requires trusting *myself* too! It's not just about trusting other people. Now that I can trust myself to take care of myself, to set boundaries and enforce them, I don't feel the need to lie like I used to. That includes trusting myself not to put myself in harm's way and to now surround myself with safe, caring and respectful others.
