Trusting others is not something one should expect. Trust is earned, not matter what kind of relationship you have. It can be a relationship a parent has with their child, child with parent, a business associate, friend, lover, confidant. The ultimate one any one of us needs to put our trust in, is the higher power we believe in. THAT’S where it truly belongs. Anyone or anything outside of that must work to gain the trust of another. Period! It would be inappropriate to say to another or expect from another, for them to trust us (or vice versa) based on one meeting, one session, one phone call. If you do, then go inside to what your gut is telling you. If and when you have any questions or concerns about it, sit back taking some time to think about the situation as well as the person giving you the information.
When we deal with other businesses, allowing a reasonable amount of time, such as anywhere between 24 – 72 hrs is sufficient. Keep in mind 24 -72 hrs is their business hours, not days. When I work with individuals or couples, I like to be upfront with what to expect, or not expect, as it comes to how I run my business. In my eyes, proper protocol concerning getting back with someone, be it business to business, client with therapist, or student with coach, is the amount of up to three days. I also go further by expressing if they do not hear back form me within that time, to please call again. Or email again. I am open to receiving their input. I want to hear from my people no matter what question, concern, issue, they have. It is better, (and healthier by the way) to voice yourself by making your thoughts known. We all know no one can read all of our thoughts, so better to voice them then leave your voice unattended. Sometimes when we don’t voice, we will build resentment towards the other person. We may feel guilt or shame about our own selves thinking we didn’t have the right to say what we wanted to say.
When we love us, it is a good thing to voice our self.
In the Relational Communication Workshop I offer, these are things we go over. Bring your thoughts, concerns, issues, to me and I will help you widen your thought process around what is holding you back. We can discuss what you think you may be holding you back. I can help you discover what else may possibly be holding you back from moving forward to discuss subject matters close to your heart. I also help others change the way they think about words, and how the words they may be using is part cause of why they are where they are.
