I think you do that through honesty. It’s the ally’s role to be open to feedback and to be contrite when they do harm. It’s your job to hold them to it through noting when ruptures occur from their behaviors, and not filtering yourself in order to save their feelings. You can be kind, but you don’t have to be nice.
