True Love Is Not Possible Without Trust In A Relationship
We often rely on our common sense to know what makes a relationship strong but we dont always get it right. For instance, are you aware that it isnt always necessary to liven things up? Consistency is actually more important than excitement in building strong relationships. This article will present eight tips that will fortify the bond with your partner by building up a foundation of trust in a relationship.
1.) As I mentioned earlier, reliability is crucial. This is the opposite of the idea that things have to be stirred up in order to keep your partners interest. A little variety now and then can help to keep things fun, but trust is the real foundation of a stable relationship. Trust means having an unquestioning belief that your partner will always be there for you. You build this trust through consistent reliability over time.
2.) Always keep in mind that your words should never be at odds with your body language. If you say that youre feeling happy but youre frowning, he or she will immediately pick up on this inconsistency. Your partner should not be second guessing what your true thoughts are because this is a kind of deceit. Trust can only happen when you mean what you say and the words match the message.
3.) Also be extremely vigilant that your words and actions agree. In this instance, Im not talking about body language. If you say one thing but do something else, your credibility will be nonexistent. Having no credibility will completely erode trust in a relationship.
4.) You must have a strong conviction about the competence of your partner. Of course everyone is better at some things than at others, but overall, you must believe that your partner is competent. If not youre violating the trust that exists between the two of you.
5.) You should never keep secrets. Secrets tend to have a way of always being discovered eventually. Once a secret is found out, your partner will always wonder about any other secrets that you may have. A lot of time is needed to create trust while secrets can destroy trust almost instantly.
6.) You must make your wants or needs known. He or she cant be expected to guess what it is that you need. Balance is important in that extreme selflessness is as bad as extreme self centeredness. Keeping your needs to yourself denies your partner the chance to contribute by doing some giving.
7.) Dont be too concerned about having to say no. A person expressing her or his needs is healthy. But there are times when the appropriate response is saying no. You will lose your partners respect if youre always giving in. Respect is a crucial ingredient in creating lasting trust in your relationship.
8.) You mustnt shy away from turmoil, hardship, or crisis. There is no relationship in the world that isnt completely free of this. When a crisis is successfully resolved, your relationship will become more resilient and strong.
Developing trust can be difficult. But a stable and lasting relationship makes it all worthwhile.
