How to Build Trust in a Relationship

The happiest, strongest and most satisfying relationships rest on a foundation of implicit trust. If you want your relationship to be strong, both of you must learn to create this kind of trust between both. Most couples only think of trust in terms of being sexually faithful, though essential, there’s more to it than just that.

Here are some key points on building trust . . .

1.Stay faithful

If your partner is not loyal, your relationship quickly becomes unworkable and soon ends with break-up. People do recover from an affair but it usually need professional help to do it. Make a commitment to be faithful and stick to it by fooling your heart or making your mind strong about the fact. If you’re not happy in the relationship, get counselling and not a part-time lover for recover.

  • If you’re faithful to someone, it means you’re faithful on all sorts. This not only means physically but also emotionally as well.
  • Some people think it’s okay to establish intimate bonds even though they may just be spending time with another person and nothing else; but it’s really not. It will eventually cause problems in your relationship.

2.Love without any ulterior motives

Both of you need to feel sure that you are loved for being yourself and not for some other reason. That could be your family, your money, your looks or anything. Make sure you’re with your significant other for the right reasons.

3.Make your partner a top priority

It can be easy to take each other for granted and ignore one another. Try not to give all of your energy and time to other people or activities. So, you will loose your importance. Keep your priorities clear. If being in a relationship is important to you, make sure it stays at the top of your list.

4.Tell the truth

Don’t keep anything unsaid or hidden, nothing should be privileged from the other. You have to know that sooner or later, and the consequences of not being completely truthful will kill the trust and soon ruin your relationship.

5.Share how you really feel

Too many people never let their partners know what they need. Don’t let your partner wonder, or try to guess what he or she should do for you. It is essential this happens with both partners. If only one partner is being catered to by the other, there is a chance one will feel smothered or the other might feel neglected. Either scenario is not good.

6.Be reliable

Trust is just another way of saying you can rely on someone. You trust your partner to do certain things no matter what at all times. This trust builds security in a relationship. Make sure your partner can count on you.

  • If you say you’re going to be home by 6 p.m., then make sure you are or at least let the other person know if something else comes up.
  • The most important factor here is consistency. If 4 out of 5 times, you never bother calling and just come home as late as you want, then that’s a strong indicator that your needs matter more to you than your partner.
  • A happy, successful relationship is when both parties make an effort at keeping up their end of the bargain.

7.Mean it say it

Your partner can read your face better than anyone else. If you are lying or trying to hide something by not quite saying all that is on your mind, he or she will be able to tell or find it. The person might even think you’re hiding or cheating. When the person knows he or she can trust whatever comes out of your mouth without hesitation, then you are building an unshakable bond.

8.Stay to the end

Misunderstandings, collide and anger are going to occur. However, make if safe for disagreements and the careful expression of anger to happen without raising a fear of abandonment. You must do this by never using the threat of walking out.
