Building trust is very important in every relationship. There are many ways that you can build trust in any relationship that you have. Our common misconception to making a relationship go strong is to keep things exciting to keep the romance going. And that's usually wrong. The most important key to a successful relationship is trust.
One of the many ways to build trust in a relationship is to be predictable. Forget what people say that you must stir things up. That's not true at all. You need to be constantly consistent in you relationship to build some trust with your partner. You also have to be reliable too because that goes much further that just coming up with new things to keep things exciting.
Another way of building trust in a relationship is by trusting your partner's instinct. Trusting is never a one way street. For your partner yo trust you back, you have to show him or her that you trust them. Showing them that you do not doubt them will prove to them that they're trustworthy and in return, they will trust you back.
Don't keep secrets from your partner. Never try to commit the mistake of lying by omission. Once your partner finds out that you're keeping a secret, they will find it hare to ever trust you again. When you start lying to your partner, it will become worse and worse. Little lies may sound not dangerous at first but eventually, those little lies will become bigger and you will have to come up with more bigger lies to cover up the little lies that you started with. This cycle will go on and on until one day, you will realize that you have lied to much although you never meant to in the first place.
Be sincere in what you say. Don't just say things for the sake of words, do it and show it to prove that you really mean what you say. Your words have to match what you do. You have to prove the sincerity of your words through your actions. Your actions have to at least speak louder than your words.
Be firm in saying no. If your partner asks you a favor and you don't think it's necessary that you give in, then say no. Saying no is okay sometimes. Not saying yes to everything will actually allow your partner to respect you more because it will show them that they should not take you for granted. Saying no shows that you are a separate person. And being a separate person will definitely help build trust in a relationship.
Don't be afraid to tell your partner what you need. Your partner can't read your mind. So communicate your needs as much as you can so that your partner will know how to cater to you.
A relationship requires a lot of work. It requires work for it to be successful. You will come to terms with crisis, emotional problems and questions in your relationship. Embrace them and work hard to make your relationship stronger. As your relationship grows, you will also grow with it.
Building trust in a relationship will require a lot of work. You will encounter problems but don't stop moving forward. Make trust as one of the center key of your relationship and it will sure go a long way.
