Trust in a Relationship

Trust is of course a major part in a relationship. It is putting yourself up to vulnerability, a feeling that many see as a weakness, but in a relationship, is what makes you so much stronger.

Putting your trust fully into your partner means that you are saying that you are giving yourself fully, that you are putting your heart in their hands with the hope that they will nurture it and look after it with love. After all that is what it deserves.

Trust is very much like most things in a relationship a ‘Two way street’. Meaning that if you don’t show your partner that you deserve to be trusted then why should they put their heart and their venerability into a lost cause or possible heartache.

A lot of people over look many things as being ‘unfaithful’, and are surprised that they are questioned by their partners over their actions or lack of thought for the other person involved. For example they go out on a night out and don’t invite or bring the other person, maybe the person is always letting the other down with false promises, little lies about certain things that they think is ‘for he best that they don’t know’. All these little things can and will add up even if it is just subconsciously they will have an effect on a lot of people in their relationships.

There are very simple and great ways to gain and give trust in a relationship. things like;

  • Being reliable
  • Being up front and honest
  • Opening up and sharing intimate thoughts with each other
  • Not always saying yes to everything, it’s ok to say no sometimes too you know
  • Doing things and new experiences together
  • Having faith in your partners capabilities
  • Communicate with each other often
  • Trust them, as you want them to trust you, if you both do this then life will be so much sweeter

your partner needs to know that you are truly committed to them and that nothing will ever cause you to hurt them or break their heart and trust in you. Remember that by putting their trust into you is making themselves completely vulnerable, which is not a feeling anyone likes. So by them giving you their trust it is a huge statement and stage in your relationship. So treasure it, and do everything you can to keep the trust between you going.
