Trust is an integral part of creating a strong and loving relationship. Lack of trust generates suspicion and fear of loss.
“It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.” ~ Anonymous
Trust requires a two-way commitment. If you want your partner to believe and trust you, you have to, in turn, trust and believe them.
- Trust does not grow from secrets. Often times, in a relationship, many people tend to conceal important facts about their past from their lover. However, when these deceptions come to light, doubt and mistrust creep into the emotional bond. Never invent or lie about the past; it has a way of coming back to bite you. Everyone has a right to privacy. How much you reveal is a matter of choice; just make sure that the information you do choose to share is honest and forthcoming.
- Build a foundation of trust by doing what you say you will do. Follow through and be consistent and reliable. If you are always late, tell little white lies to justify behavior and fabricate excuses, you corrode your credibility. Lies, even the little white ones, add up. Enough of them and trustworthiness are quickly destroyed.
- Honor your word and keep your promises. Your partner needs to know they can depend on you.
