How to build trust in your relationship.
Every healthy relationship should have the most important element which happens to be trust. A relationship without trust is too hollow and I would be lying if I told you such a relationship would last anyway. It is very important to build as well as maintain trust in a relationship if you want to see it growing into something beautiful.
Simply defined, trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something. As the saying goes, for love to prosper, Trust has to prevail. If your relationship is lacking Trust, then I suggest that you work on building it and of your relationship by any chance has lost any spark of trust, I suggest you do your best to rekindle it as you may find yourself having to let go of the relationship if there is no trust.
A relationship with out trust is like a car with out gas. There is no way it will leave that spot. If your relationship lacks trust, then trust me there is no way that relationship is progressing. It will stagnate to a point that you will get tired of it and eventually, the only solution will be to let it go.
“Trust is like the air we breathe. when it’s present, nobody really notices; when it’s absent, everybody notices.” Warren Buffett.
How to build trust in your relationship.
Communication is the key.
What is a relationship with out communication? We all get busy from time to time and we do appreciate that we are different people. Even when we are built different, there are things we should adjust to simply because we are in a relationship. You may not be good at keeping tabs on people or telling people what you are doing all the time, but if you want to build trust in your relationship, you need to keep communication with your partner.
Stop claiming that you are always busy. We all know that there is something called a priority right? Communicating with your partner should be one because if you do not communicate with them, they will keep assuming things( and some have wild imaginations), something that could break their trust.
Respect your partner.
The best way to earn trust from your partner is to respect them. Respect is a very important element in every relationship and once you respect your partner, they will definitely trust you. When you respect your partner, it leads to one thing and that is trust. This is simply because your partner will feel loved and appreciated or even understood.
Treating your partner with respect makes them realize that you are considerate towards them and you understand them. This fosters the trust they have in you.
Respect each other’s boundaries
In a relationship, the best way to build trust is not just by setting boundaries for each other but also by respecting those boundaries you have chosen to set in your relationship. If there is something your partner feels like they do not want to do, they will tell you about it, highlighting that they are uncomfortable doing it. Do not just stop at setting boundaries and hearing your partner out. Go ahead and respect these boundaries. This will build trust between the two of you.
Do not assume
This simply goes to one thing. Do not jump to conclusions. Assuming usually comes in when your partner does not take time to communicate. When there is no communication, you will find that one of you will always try to assume the situation of the relationship because you have not heard from your partner about a clarification. This means you are left to assume.
If you are able to erase doubts, talk to your partner and stop them from assuming and if you are the one assuming, do not rush to conclusions. Give your partner he benefit of the doubt and patiently ask or wait for clarification rather than jumping to conclusions. Assuming usually causes distrust.
Being vulnerable is not for the weak. Most people believe that being vulnerable equates to being weak, which is not always the case. When you are vulnerable, it allows your partner to see a new side to you. This shows them that you have trusted them enough to share something so deep with them. When they feel trusted, then this means they will trust you as well. It is a mutual feeling.
In your relationship, make sure to be considerate with your partner. When you put their feelings into consideration, it will make it easiest for your partner to trust you. The thing is, when you show your partner that you are not judgemental towards their decisions or what ever they tell you is going on, that means you are considering what they may have been going through in order to make such decisions. Being non judgemental will earn their trust.
Own up to your mistakes.
If you error in your relationship, make sure you admit to your mistakes and own up to them. Asking for forgiveness is not that hard, you see. Admitting to your mistakes and trying to make up for them is the best way to build trust between you and your partner. When you admit to your mistakes and try to work on them, this shows your partner that you are responsible hence they will trust you.
Keep your promises
You will never find a more trustworthy person than the one who keeps their promises. If you keep your word, it will be easier for your partner to trust in you because they will always know that you will turn up when you say you will and you will do everything you have promised to do. That is the power if keeping g a promise.
