One of the most powerful ways you can honour a relationship is through transparency. Transparency is the act of sharing your internal process with someone. By sharing your internal motivations and intentions you act with true integrity: the alignment of thought, word, and deed.
You will find that even if your actions do not line up with someone else’s desires that acting with this type of powerful transparency will still allow you to build trust with that person. You will be giving them true respect by not deceiving them, leading them on, or placating their feelings. This type of transparency can also show to someone that you believe in their ability to receive the truth. When you give someone your truth you not only honour your relationship with them, you honour your relationship with your self.
