The Trademark of Trust
Relationships are an integral part of life. It is impossible to go through life without ever having had a bond with another person. Relationships can be casual or more intimate on level that is either romantic or platonic. Also, all relationships require work.
When people think of work, they often think that this means that it has to be difficult. Work simply means that a certain amount of effort and thought has to go into something to get the most out of it. The truth is, we can’t just skate through our relationships without some level of give and take if we want them to last.
Most healthy people want to be part of a happy trusting relationship that enhances their life. Anytime we have interactions with other human beings we are setting the stage for forming relationships. Interactions with friends, family, romantic partners, co-workers and even the lady at the grocery store require some level of work on our part, if we want the relationship to remain healthy.
While our relationship with the lady at the bank may just require us to smile and make small talk, our relationships with romantic partners require much more than that.
If you have just broke up, and getting your ex back is important, you have to show that you are willing to put in the work to sustain a trusting and healthy relationship. To sustain those more personal, intimate relationships, requires trust, communication, mutual respect and a general investment in the other persons well being.
Those that value relationships will be open and willing to look hard at themselves. Open and honest communication is essential for both parties in the relationship to know what is expected and agree on the unwritten rules of the relationship. Most people break up because they either don’t understand or can’t agree to follow the rules of the partnership, or have violated them in some way. Getting trust back is more difficult than earning it in the first place.
We all aspire to building and keeping healthy and happy relationship with all of the important people in our lives. In order to do this, it requires a willingness to look at ourselves and change those things that cause other to question our trustworthiness. Getting back with your ex will not be possible if you cannot show that you have changed in some way to provide him or her ability to be able to trust you.
Without a doubt trust and respect are the cornerstones of a healthy, happy relationship. You have to be able to trust each other if a relationship is to remain healthy and lasting. Trust is earned and built over time. You do not meet a person and immediately trust them, rather you have to get to know them and make sure that they are worthy of your trust, and vice versa. One of the main causes of breakups for most couples is a lack or betrayal of the bond of trust.
