A relationship that lacks trust is doomed. This is the sad and ugly truth. No relationship will ever survive no matter how much effort you put into it, unless you and your partner can trust each other. In this article we discuss 7 ways to build trust in a relationship.
1) Be Predictable
A lot of people think that it is very important to always spice things up in a relationship to keep the romance alive. This is true because you should always try to surprise your partner with something nice or should do something that they have always asked you to do. But being unpredictable is something else. This means that your partner will not feel safe or secure in a relationship. Your partner should know that they know you and can depend on you all the time.
2) Don’t Send Mixed Signals
When you talk to your partner, make sure that your words match your body language. When you are saying something that you don’t mean, you are confusing your partner and they know that they can’t trust you. Instead, speak up and say what you feel
3) Talk To Your Partner About Their Best Traits And Flaws
In order to build trust with your partner, you need to tell them what you really feel about them. When said with love, the truth never hurts. If your partner is doing something that really bothers you, then talk to them rather than letting it build up and hurt your feeling and later your relationship.
4) Secrets Kill trust
You have to understand that no secret will actually remain secret for long. The amount of energy that you spend in keeping and hiding secrets should be used to build your relationship. What is worse is that when your partner knows that you have been keeping secrets from them. Big or small, secrets will kill all the trust between you.
5) Spill It Out
Telling your partner what you really feel is very important and is better than letting them guess what your needs are. Your partner wants to know what you want because they want you to be happy and want your relationship to work. Telling them is better than letting them guess.
6) Learn To Say No
Listening to your partner is a good thing because this means that your partner trusts your enough to tell you what they feel and need in a relationship. But you don’t have to say yes to everything. In fact, sometimes learning to say no at the right time can help you save your relationship. This means that you are not just playing along but you are actually considering what is being said.
7) Learn That Hard Work Pays Off
Working on building trust in your relationship is sometimes painful. You will have to go through some struggles or pain. But this pain prepares us for the growth and prosperity. Whatever you bring up to the surface, will help you create the healthy environment to build the trust in your relationship.
Trust is the key element in the survival of your relationship. It is what you need to focus on if you want to have a successful relationship that will last a life time.
