Rebuilding Trust In a Relationship
Rebuilding trust can be difficult. In practical sense trust means that you place confidence in someone to be honest with you, to keep promises, to not take advantage of you, to not lie, cheat or steal from you. It's the glue of the relationship. To lose it usually means a lot of pain, confusion, anger, and sadness.
If you lose trust, you will put a question mark in front of everything your partner says or does. And vice versa. So what do we do if we don't want to end the relationship? How do we earn trust and be trustful again?
Here are some suggestions:
- Be honest
- Take responsibility for your own actions and decisions
- Talk, communicate, listen. Unaswered questions and doubts can linger on for years
- Say what you are going to do and do what you say
- Give trust back
- Let go of the past. Learn to stop draging the past into the present
- Give it time, don't expect an overnight change
Rebuilding trust will take time, it won't happen over night. But investing in strengthening and maintaining your relationship will result in mutual respect and connectedness built on the foundation of trust. So it's worth it.
All you need is honesty, love, forgiveness, patience, commitment and a lot of time. No one said it's gonna be easy.
