3 Common Things That Breaks Trust In A Relationship

The success of a relationship does not happen by chance. It is the result of the two persons in charge of their relationship making conscious efforts. To put it another way, before any relationship can work, certain conditions must be met. Aside from love, one important factor that should exist between lovers is trust; otherwise, it would only be a matter of time before the relationship ends prematurely.

The truth is that practically everyone wants to be trusted in a relationship, but that desire is often neglected due to the acts and inactions of those involved. Unlike love, which appears on a platter of gold without the exertion of any effort on the part of the wielders, trust is acquired via appropriate behaviors and acts. That is, if you want to be trusted by your spouse in a relationship, you must consistently demonstrate trustworthy behavior that allows your partner to fully trust you.

Furthermore, it is one thing to be trusted, and it is another to maintain your partner's trust in you. Most persons who were formerly trusted by their partners eventually lost that trust owing to some of their actions. You must avoid the following, among other things if you want to earn and keep your partner's trust:

1. Telling lies: Resist the impulse to lie to your partner, regardless of the nature of the deception, because falsehoods and trust cannot coexist in a relationship. They're similar to two parallel lines. All of the lies people speak over the phone tend to erode their partners' faith in them. Your companion may have already acquired the answer before asking you a question to get information from you. He or she would merely ask you this question to test if you are brave enough to give him or her the truth. It is preferable to hurt your partner with the truth than to lie to please them because they will despise you once they discover the truth. Always tell the truth, no matter how difficult the situation may be. Your lover will trust you to the end if you do it this way.

2. Cheating. Another thing that can destroy trust in a relationship is infidelity. When you cheat on your partner, you are inadvertently breaking his or her trust in you. Avoiding anything that would cause you to cheat on your spouse is one of the simplest methods to earn your lover's trust at all times.

3. Secrecy. You can't expect your spouse to continue to trust you if you keep sensitive and vital information about yourself and your relationship hidden from them. You must always "show him/her all the cards" if you want his/her trust in you to remain intact. Keep no information from your partner (especially those that could be used against him/her if discovered). Carry your companion along in all of the minor nuances of your past and present.

Remember that once trust is shattered, it is difficult to repair since trust is like a broken plate. Things will never be the same again, no matter how hard you try. The scar will remain for the rest of my life. As a result, do everything you can to prevent situations that could jeopardize your partner's trust in you.
