Transparency People don’t trust what they cannot see. Making your life purposefully transparent builds trust in the couple. The spirit of transparency is the first key in restoring trust says Stephen Covey of The Speed of Trust. Can you be asked anytime where you are, who you’re with, where you’re going and what you are doing? Be accountable for your actions, your reactions and your lack of action. Tell the truth and leave the right impression so that you cannot be misunderstood. Make sure your actions accurately display your intentions. The counterfeit of transparent is illusion, making things appear different than they are. Illusion is opaque while trust is transparent.
