Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.
Trust is an important factor in any relationship. Without trust no relation will survive. Building trust in a relationship can be difficult. People think they know how to, but sometimes it doesn’t work with some people. Building trust is a very important part of a relationship, and without it, relationships can be very stressful.
Trust is the bedrock for building a strong relationship. Trust means that you have placed your confidence and faith in your partner, and that you expect honesty, integrity, loyalty, and respect to be at the center of your relationship. You also expect your partner to keep promises and confidences, and to stay with you when the going gets tough.
An important ingredient in any romantic relationship is the establishment of trust. The presence of trust is a key indicator in the health of a relationship as well as the level of intimacy between partners. Trust is the key to any relationship because without it you cannot have the confidence to share your feelings, memories, emotions, and yourself with someone else.
Trust must not be immediately assumed, or given. Trust must be earned. If you are struggling with the issue of trust in your relationship below are some tips to help you develop greater trust with your partner.
Honesty is the best policy. A relationship blossoms if both partners are honest towards each other. Being honest makes the other person trust you. Dishonesty can be harmful for any relationship. It is true that you will take time to build the trust but it is not worth to lose trust with one mistake. What is the use of being in a relationship if you cannot devote to it sincerely?
‘Please do not lie to your partner, unless you are absolutely sure your partner will never find out the truth,’ the well known quote will make you think. Being truthful is like climbing the first step of the ladder called ‘trust’. A lie is hard to find out but once it is out in the open, the relationship will suffer. Telling your spouse that you are in a meeting when you are actually in the bar with friends is like betraying the trust. Even the smallest lie can devastate a relationship.
Keep your promises
If you have given a word to your girlfriend that you will meet her on the weekend, keep your word. If you have promised your husband that you will accompany him to his friend’s party, do not step back. Keeping your promises will make your partner believe in you. Your dear one will trust you for the rest of his or her life.
Show that you care
Faith will go deeper and deeper if you really care for the other person. Do you regularly ask your wife whether she had her lunch properly at her work place? How often do you plan a romantic date for your girlfriend? Care can be exhibited through words, emotions and gestures. Trust is a greater emotion than love. If trust is there love will follow.
Protect Against Intruders
Set limits on how close you become with outsiders to the relationship. Boundaries guard against infidelity and deep emotional connections that tear away at the intimacy between the couple. This is where honesty, faithfulness and love come in to under-gird and protect the relationship. Guard against flattery from others. In order to keep your marriage safe from intruders you need to come up with a strong plan of action to ensure the security of your relationship!
Relationship is a sweet responsibility. A trustworthy partner is always responsible for his or her behavior. Be responsible for your actions. If your relationship is not sailing smooth, it is your responsibility to do something about it. Talk to each other and face the adversities together. Your romantic life will be awesome if you have faith in each other. Being responsible is an important aspect of developing trust.
Finally, make it a point to work together to resolve conflicts and problem areas to foster growth and a mature, deep and committed relationship that will endure. If you are both invested in making it work, you both have work to do. Working together is incredibly important!
If you want to build trust in your relationship you need to ask and seek answers. If your partner begins to act differently then seek out the reason behind it. Talk to your partner about it instead of hiding behind them. Ask your partner to talk to you about these things, because when they don’t, you feel as though they are hiding something and can make you feel uneasy.
Trust is like the cement of your foundation. If it starts to crack or crumble, the whole building will be unstable. Your whole relationship will be unstable. So, be worthy of trust yourself, seek for trust and you will find that your relationship is stronger and better.
Learning to trust and building trust are two sides of the same coin. Someone has said, ‘You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.’ You have chosen your partner as your soul mate as you have faith in him or her. Let your sweetheart know how much you trust and how much you care. Keep the spark of love alive forever.

Having trust in a relationship is very important. If you can not trust each other, you can not live together. Three years ago I met my boyfriend for the first time. As time pass our relationship became mature. We used to fight a lot earlier. One day he promised me that he would come at my place to meet my mom and dad. When the day came he did not turn up. That disappointed me badly. For some period of time I lost trust in him. I told him that could not trust him anymore. It took time to mend the things. Later he became very cautious about keeping his promises. Our relationship suffered a lot but as they say ‘let go’ and ‘forgive’. I believe in forgiveness. I forgive him. We are getting married soon and I am sure he will make a trustworthy husband.
