Building Trust to Nourish Your Relationship with Your Partner

You would ask people about the building block of a healthy relationship, some will say it is “love” while some will mention “trust” in their answer. It depends on the way they think and believe. Let us tell you it is the trust that will make or break your relationship.

So, it is clear that you need to work on building trust if you want to strengthen the bonding with your partner. Now, many of you will be thinking that how to build that trust and where to start from? Well, here we are mentioning the different ways you can build trust with your partner. No matter whether you are trying to build trust in your newly established relationship, want to elevate the developed trust or are going to rebuild the broken trust, these tips will help you in all the cases. As said, it's never late to get started; you can start following these tips today only.

Tips to build Trust :

1. Honesty is a crucial factor that will help you build trust. But, always remember that you will be honest with your partner only when you will be honest with yourself.

2. More you spend time together, stronger your bonding will get. So, no matter how busy or occupied you are, always arrange the time for your partner.

3. When you are married to or are committed to your partner, then no matter is individual to you only. So, you must share everything with your partner as an issue related to you will also affect your relationship.

4. A problem that most of the people face nowadays is a communication gap. It is because, every time you start to talk, your conversation ends at arguments and to avoid that, you ignore talking to each other.

Re: Building Trust to Nourish Your Relationship with Your Partner

In addition trust is built through the confirmation of the follow through of promised actions. Honesty is a part of this but is not all of it.

Another aspect of the bonding you mention is sex. Orgasms release oxytocin which has been shown to help establish trust.

Unfortunately as long term relationships progress most people mistake irreconcilable differences as forms of broken trust. For example if two people have different religious beliefs that conflict (even if observing the same religion) eventually you just have to be yourself and get over it as a couple. This process often presents itself as breaking the trust in the relationship, when in reality it is about asking each other to accept the other for who he/she actually is.

For example person A) believes masturbation is a sin (although this is nowhere in the bible in any great detail) and feels like sexuality should only be discovered by his/her partner.

Person B) believes that masturbation is healthy and that one's sexuality can not be shared with a partner unless you know yourself first.

Person A) will accuse person B) of violating trust in the relationship each time B) masturbates regardless of how open and unashamed that B) is about his/her beliefs.

Person B) will accuse person A) of being unwilling to self explore and feel trust is being violated when he/she refuses to even read a book on human sexuality and discuss.

So @emmasmith your tips will NOT help unless a couple first learns to both BE themselves and ACCEPT the other person for who they actually are instead of only accepting them for the person each wants the other to be for them. In the meantime sharing everything will sometimes be undesirable. My wife once told me early in our relationship regarding some irreconcilable differences, "I would rather not know these things about you, please keep them discrete, and know if I ever see that again, it is going cause problems for me!" She felt I violated her trust by continuing to be open. Today we accept each other and have actually learned to appreciate our how our differences compliment our relationship.

More important than trust is to just "be yourself" and let go of any fears that your partner will reject you in the event he/she discovers something about you that you know they will not like. Two people can't love each other unless they actually know each other. The fear of loosing someone you care about will more often than not prevent you from just being yourself in order to protect the relationship.
